Interestingly the lens choice with 1 vote (the 70-300) seems to be part of the priority plan from the manufacturer: Nippon Camera Ricoh/Pentax 2019 Interview - PentaxForums.com
Today many of us have an APSC and FF setup. The lightweight and compact DA55-300PLM is great on APSC and even partially usable in FF mode on the K-1. For travel I take the KP with me and the DA55-300PLM if I need/want longer than 135mm FL.

Although I understand people who chose to go solely FF are very interested in more lightweight long FF zoom lenses I simply don‘t need and want another lens in this FL range.

At the moment on top of my priority list is the DA*11-18. If it also covers the FF image circle at 18 I‘m pretty happy and all I need besides a DFA TC1.4x for the DFA150-450 @ K-1 in FF mode.

To date, we are pushing close to 40% for APS-c flagship. Can we make it a majority? Tell your friends to vote.
Personally I'm content right now. Got the K1ii from black friday and last lens I was looking for is on the way to me. I expect all DFA* primes to be out before I start to yearn for them. So voted for APSC flagship to make Norm happy
Hopefully its arrival would quiet the complain for the lack of it on the forum

It’s the internet... we’ll find something else to complain about

But frankly, this is a lot of stuff to consider ‘likely’ from Ricoh in a single year. I’m cautiously optimistic...

I'm curious where all the rest of the lenses are coming from? I can't see them on the roadmap. I know that an 85mm, 70-200mm f4, 11-18, and 1.4x teleconverter are planned but where are the rest?

The 11-18 is still on my list as a needed lens (for me). It is the one point in my personal lens line-up I have nothing for Aps-c.

The 70-300 holds no interest for me. When the 70-200 f/4 comes out, I'll decide on which lens suits me, the f/4 version or the f/2.8 or the 60-250. That is if I haven't purchased one of the available ones already.

I'm going to put my thoughts in on the next Aps-c camera. I think it'll be more like the K-1 / KP than a K7/K5/K3. If it were a KP upgraded like the K3ii, larger buffer, dual cards, GPS built in (this I expect because of the 11-18), then I'll pre-order one. I didn't think I'd like being without the top LCD, but the control wheel layout of the K-1 and KP really takes the need for the LCD out of the equation for me, I don't miss it at all. YMMV

Edit:
The one thing I do miss on the KP is IR remote capabilities.

The poll only allows one choice. I'd buy the 85/1.4, 35/1.4, DFA 1.4X, DA 11-18/2.8 ALL equally quickly. I suspect I'd use the 35/1.4 most frequently, followed by the 85.

Indeed, a single choice makes no sense: Pentax lenses are like Pokemons, you gotta buy 'em all.

Sadly you are correct. There is no “just buy one”...

I hope they aren’t entirely like Pokémon. I Haven’t trained my SMC-A 50mn f1.4 well enough to get it to evolve into a FA50 f1.4, never mind a DFA*50 f1.4...

I have no idea how a Pokemon is like. I can recognize Pikachu, obviously I know the theme song's title, and I know there was some sort of a silly game making people to wander all around the town for some reason.
But training your lens to evolve into a D FA* 50mm can be solved with money
