1) FF, FF, FF, FF, FF.... FF
2) Any smaller AF points on the horizon?
3) Revamped limited series (both DA and FA) with WR?

Horse sized duck or 100 duck sized horses?
Riding in a carriage whether it is pulled by real sized horses or 100 duck sized horses is simply pretentious so of course I would have to go for a horse sized duck, plus that way I could have it fly me around.

DA versions of legendary high end lenses like A*1.8 135 mm and FA 200 macro, FA 250-600...; same optical formula can be kept, development cost should be minimal...
What about the APS-C K5 successor (K3 ?)

I liked both comments and I would be specially interested in modern updated versions of the FA 200 Macro and the FA 250-600 and smaller/more AF points.
I'm also interested in the ~130-380mm and ~16-85mm zooms on the roadmap.
Additionally to all the before mentioned questions, I would like to ask if there are any plans to broaden the line of "cheap" DAs (DA35, DA50) by adding a DA24 2,8, a DA85 1,8 and possibly a DA135 2,8?

Are there any plans for a new high-quality, small-size APS-C DSLR,
at a $600 level price point, of the caliber of the old K-x?

Does Pentax have plans for an overhaul of the flash system? Specifically, plans to raise the max sync speed, at least in their top tier DSLRs; and the ability to control "zones" or "groups" of off camera flashes, not just channels which are only used when shooting with other photographers.

Follow-up: Will we ever see a custom menu option to allow the camera's flash to fire above the max sync speed without a HSS flash on the hotshoe?
This please. Go ahead and throw some WR on those flashes as well.

Features of the O-GPS built into the dlsr body? (With the option to turn off, naturally!)

Might have missed these...

1. Touch screens
2. Wifi control from smartphones, tablets or PCs...

I am not sure that touchscreens go along well with weather sealing. Aside the problem of screen waterproof-ness, there is the fact that water drops disrupt them.

Please do not accept "Pentax lens selection is inadequate" as an answer for FF questions. There are so many existing FF compatible Pentax lenses on peoples shelves, that the first Pentax FF DSLR body will sell as well as K-5 did I think. This would give Pentax 2 more years to create the most needed FF lenses.

-Ever thought of a 24x24 squared FF ? Would solve the use of most APS-C lenses on it.

-43 limited was adapted to m39 screw mount. Would be another lens ? (huge market behind, not only for rangefinder enthousiasts like me but also for EVIL users) Suggestion : the 31 for example...
