He will be shipped to Japan and taken apart for recalibration.

They will call in a third party to brand him and interrogate him until he is decentered? Oh man this is going downhill quickly.

there was also a new pentax q lens in the planning?

still to come?
Right now entire "Q" family seems to be getting as much attention as this question has.

Nobody outside Pentax knows what their plans are for the "Q", or whether they even have any plans, and they aren't talking.

I am hoping for a 20mm f2.8 for ~$US800.
I am hoping for a 20mm f3.5 Limited for $650.

If they create something faster like 35/1.4, 85/1.4.. why not, even better.
Because they'd be stupid big. I know the current market trend is for fast, fast and faster still, but I'm not
buying. I don't want anything like a 650g 35mm lens.

Yes indeed! Bring on the DFA Limiteds.

A compact 20 or 24 mm prime will make me even more tempted to buy the K-1!

Good to hear. As per this morning's email, my last 'friend/contact' @ Ricoh Imaging USA "no longer work(s) in the camera division. . . " but I was in touch with new people this afternoon - yes, good times ahead.

They need at least

HD DFA24/1.8WR DC
HD DFA35/1.8WR DC
HD DFA50/1.4WR DC
HD DFA85/1.8WR DC

to stay competitive. If they create something faster like 35/1.4, 85/1.4.. why not, even better.
You nailed it bro. Although the 24 and 35 may be a bit slower than you stated. And 85 may be a tad faster that you stated.

More like

HD DFA15/4 WR DC
HD DFA24/2 WR DC
HD DFA50/1.4WR DC
HD DFA85/1.4WR DC
HD DFA10-17/F4 fisheye
