Looks like 2 new telelenses/telezoom next first half of the year.
Every new Lens in higher grade is WR in future.
Only cheap kits are without WR,still.
Maybe Ricoh goes to 100% WR.
You are the bringer of great news :-) If I ever meet you, you can count on a few beers!

According to Ricoh Imaging France (Invitation gratuite au Salon de la Photo 2013 - Actualités de Pentax - RICOH IMAGING EUROPE S.A.S) there are some surprises to expect at their booth at the Salon de la Photo, Paris (which is held from nov. 7)

"Et surtout, des surprises vous attendent sur notre stand!"

Of course, one of these surprises will be the HD DA 20-40/2.8-4 Limited. But the other surprise(s)???
Man, she has a long neck.

Yes there was. I seem to remember one poster (Uluru?) indicating that they knew about it's existence and that it was constant f/2.8 and remarkable for it's range, something like 16-70.

So that lens - whatever the reality of its specs - could be one surprise.

So:

1) Wide Q zoom
2) HD limited zoom
3) 2.8 mid zoom

Could be the the surprises.
18-70/2.8
It was meant to be announced together with K-3 now in November.
But K-3 was announced earlier most likely because of that September 5th rumoured announcement, which turned into a huge disappointment for fans.
Ricoh doesn't have much to show at once, they are just spreading it across many months.

An 18-70 f/2.8 would be a substantial lens unless Pentax can somehow shrink the non-optical parts of the lens - i.e. size of the housing, whatever AF motor they go with etc.

However such a lens would be expected to be WR and with a 20mm more on the long end (even if it's 2mm longer on the short end as well) it'll be a fair bit bigger than the 16-50 which is already heavy.

Maybe Pentax will show the K-02 in a retrostyle like the new Nikon Df or the new Sony a7

The * Line is maybe off,cause * means in this time SDM!!! and the highest quality,but SDM is the motordrive......so,we think SDM will come again in a complete new productline.
This support the theory that no */SDM-lenses have been introduced lately since future pro bodies will not be crop sensor.

The so-called surprises aren't surprises any longer:

- HD Pentax-DA 20-40mm f/2.8-4 ED Limited DC WR


- Pentax-08 Wide Zoom (3,8-5,9mm f/3.7-4 equivalent to 17.5-27mm on Q7)

That's the trouble with surprises, they can only surprise you once…. after that, they aren't a surprise anymore. UNless of course it's your little brother jumping out of a closet with a zombie mask on, and after a hill, even that gets old.

Is that a weird special step-up ring on the third ltd zoom image? I think I can see DC on the very end of it.

I think that's a hood, looks like it is screw on vs pull out.

Isn't it rather tiny for a lens hood? unless HD is so flare resistance that only light from the steepest of angles could cause flare
