Any rumors about new lenses?

Hi. I've recently sold all my Pentax Gear with the intention of moving to Full frame (either C*NON or N*KON). As I'm not in a hurry (when I mostly use my gear is in summer), I'm waiting to Photokina to see what all brands have to offer. With the recent rumors about K-5 and its fast AF, High DR and nice High ISO performance I've considered staying with Pentax.

However, what worries me the most are lenses and not cameras. I will only be getting digitally optimized full frame lenses that I will use either in an APS-C or future Full Frame Pentax Cameras (considering how expensive good lenses are, I need to have the confidence my lenses will work nicely in any future high end Pentax body, whether it's APS-C or Full frame).

My question is, has anybody info about what lenses will Pentax be announcing in Photokina (appart from the rumored 18-125)? Is there any chance any of this lenses will belong to the DFA line or a new full frame line?

It will be nice to have an announcement of lenses such as:

DFA 12-24
DFA 24-70 or 28-70
DFA 70-200 or 80-200
DFA 400
