New Tamron 70-200mm F4 Patent

Maybe Pentax should give them a call. Would be nice to have a D FA 70-200 F4 as a cheaper and lighter alternative.

or a 200 f4 macro would also be fine for me. Some sort of 200mm relatively small, without SDM problems.

If I read the inscrutable translation correctly, there's also a 70~300mm f4 on paper, and would be potentially even more interesting. Tamron has always made a very good zoom of that range, and offered it at an almost ridiculous bargain price. But will they offer it in K-mount, or contract with Pentax to have the optics cased and sold in Pentax wrapping?
