TAMRON 150 - 600 f 5-6.3 for K Mount?

It is a suggestion to ask Ricoh/Pentax/Tamron if they can/will re-brand the new Tamron into:
HD Pentax - DFA 150-600 F 5.0-6.3 ED AL (IF) DC WR

Maybe that's the new lens on the roadmap?

Are there any news about the new Pentax tele-zoom?

I was hoping that it will be released within 2015, but then some rumors about the zoom specifications would have leaked... But nothing so far!

The best scenario would be to release two tele-zooms the one that is being developed (BUT SOON IT IS ALREADY QUITE DELAYED) which is in the 120-400 range and the rebranded Tamron 150-600... Or even a Tamron with a K-mount even if it didn't feature WR and HD coatings would do the job for me...

This would put Pentax well into the wildlife-sport game that is quite ignored up to now and is a serious gap in the company's lens and activities arsenal!
