Wow. I have the 500mm f 4.5 lens for Pentax mount. Maybe it will hold it's resale value now? I bought the next to last one on Amazon a few months ago. And let me tell you it is as sharp as any lens i have ever used. Just outstanding IQ. If they ever get the mess with the sensor stain out of the way with the k-5. It will be my next purchase.

That is hard to believe. Pentax has just hit rock bottom for any serious sports and wildlife shooting. Such a wonderful designed camera. Hoya just ran it into the ground. I have my doubts it will ever come back to life now. I personally don't see it going out of business. But, never in my life time to compete again.... . But then again i am old as shit..... Ahhhhhh

No, Tamron loves money.
As long as it is profitable to sell Pentax mount lenses they will continue to offer them.

Hmm, I don't know. I just read that Tamron is relasing an update of their "travelzoom" supposedly with fewer lens elements and improved performance:

Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD with Piezo Drive AF: Digital Photography Review

It will be available in Canon/Nikon with VR and a Sony version without VR - but there is no mention of a Pentax mount...
