Yup that's what the current roadmap looks like, except everything you've circled is 2014 or later (obviously).

Also, the DA zoom limited is out:
HD Pentax-DA 20-40mm F2.8-4 Limited DC WR Reviews - DA Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

I have a feeling they're preparing some surprises, besides what's on the roadmap

Yes the one from Percy is the last one. TC is now labelled as "HD". 3 zooms are expected, one is the replacement of the 12-24, one the replacement of the 16-50 probably, and a new telezoom, longer than the 60-250, maybe will reach 400 mm

Desperately waiting for the "long" zoom - a WR version of 100-400 or Bigma or a pentax branded version of the new Tamron would be right up my street. If it was DA*, even better. I've got a 60-250 but it can be a little too short at times.

It's good to see that I'm not the only one....

Am I right or am I wrong?

It's unfortunately clipped off the bottom part, where they were showing the FF body to go with these lenses.

Roadmaps accurately state intentions at the time the roadmaps are released.

Then things change.

Not much of a roadmap. It only shows where we've been :-S I mean, the "plan" for "2013 or later" is basically describing lens types. Its almost comical.

I'm wondering if a couple of these are going to be "HD" versions of the current lens lineup - like the DA12-24 and DA17-70?

No. None of the HD limited primes or the HD 55-300 were ever part of a roadmap. The upcoming DA ~12-28 is likely a replacement of the DA 12-24. According to the latest rumors, the standard zoom on the roadmap will be an 18-70 f2.8.

I wouldn't be totally shocked if we see an HD and WR update to the DA 17-70. But it's not one of the promised roadmap lenses.

I would like to see that lens. At F2.8 it would replace my F 35-70.
