New 55-300mm ? To much bodies and lenses at once?

Hi folks,
has anyone heard about a new Pentax 55-300mm f4-5.6?
Will this lense be the next standard telephoto zoom lense, so will this new one be a replacement for the 55-200mm?

Slowly but surely I am a bit afraid Pentax has perhaps announced to much new stuff at once. Thinking about the long long waiting periods for new lenses in the past, Pentax would have to change their "production speed" completetly - and at the same time Pentax would have to improve the quality control to prevent such a story as the 16-50 * SDM. The people would not like 4 or 5 new lenses in 2008 - which would have such problems.
