DA* 8-16 mm F3.5 FISHEYE (49 mm rear filter)

.......besides the SDM unreliability, something super wide in the DA* series is all I'd really like to see. With something super wide like in the 8-12/14 range, the 16-50 and the 60-250, one would be pretty covered.

Probably been mentioned already but a 150-400/4 would be very sweet.

If Pentax don't want to make 35mm camera, then 16-50mm 2.0, 50-135mm 2.0 & 18-200mm 3.5-5.6 would be great.

DA* 150-300 F5.6
Yes, it sounds weird - but this could be small, light (600g?), extremely high quality and weather resistant. Speed isn't everything, and it could be popular with people who want something better than the DA55-300 while still travelling small-and-light. And it's not just copying Canon. With the high-ISO capabilities of the K-5 it's viable for wildlife. I'd buy it.
