Hell we need these lenses! Even, 'slow' 100-400 f/4-5.6 kinds matching up the Sigma/Canikon offerings will do... people like me, who are looking for wildlife lenses on a budget will grab those... or we'll be forced to settle for the likes of the Sigma 50-500 and still be told, "the Pentax mount one will take 4 weeks to arrive, sir. But if you want a Canon or Nikon mount..."

I'd love a 10-28mm f:2.8 *SDM
to match the amazing Nikkor 17-35mm
There is no such mount for pentax. Get your facts right.

200-600mm should be F4 and be the more seriois pro zoom. Again a matched 1.4/5x TC to get to 900mm F5.6. The TC should again come with the lens.
That sure would be cool, but 600mm f/4 means 150mm diameter of the front element! That lens would have to have wheels And it will be $$,$$$

Something around 100-400 f/5.6 would be ok for me, but there's already a Sigma to come at a reasonable price ...
