Since the original grip fits, I doubt they will.
What no one seems to have asked is if they addressed the horizontal line noise from using the battery grip's battery. I suspected this needed to be fixed inside the body instead of in the grip, but I'm sure K20D purchasers will find out soon ;-)
I haven't asked this since I never noticed this ever... And I use my grip all the time! I did notice the illustrious VPN in badly exposed high ISO shots (ISO 1100 and ISO 1600), but never this grip related HPN... So I guess this is even less?

Anyway, we'll see...

Well, IMHO, there is one thing that every grip should have standard and to my surprise, no landscape shooter has mentioned. The tripod socket of the grip should be aligned with the lens, so the camera could be properly used on a tripod. The offset it now has, means all serious landscape shooters have to unmount the grip, or use special tripod heads that compensate for the misalignment (like me).
Otherwise, it only makes sense for handheld - although everyone who needs the extra battery juice, has no alternative.
I hope if Pentax releases a new grip, among all other suggestions, they take this under consideration.
