Quite honestly I'd like a 400mm F5.6 akin to that of Canon for roughly the same price. Otherwise, the 300mm F4 refresh.

None of the above. Show signs of live and present new calculations, Pentax. Fill gaps and stop rebadging.

135mm f1.8 and 85mm f1.4. Would be my two favorite lenses for portraits.

Somewhere, they must have the design for the FA*400/5.6. A WR HD DC-drive version would fill a gap in the long FL lineup.

will be great if could remodel the 60-250 into a DFA* 50-250 f4.0
Until then:

How to Modify the DA* 60-250mm F4 for Full Frame - Articles and Tips |

Apart from having no lens correction profiles, it's a flawless modification. I don't even think about it anymore.

I love my 55* but the flare is a real disappointment to me. Any update will be very welcome.

And if you ask what I really want, I think APSC prime users deserve WR wide to normal primes. Update it to Star or DFA series, it doesn't matter. We don't have anything WR from 14 to 40 mm. Fast DFA (star) 10, 15, 21, 35, WR will make Pentax great again!
