Reading back through some old posts there was mention (by a seemingly credible poster) of a new Pro Line of lenses.

They were characterized as an updated DA* line with an entirely new ring-type motor, new coatings, new barrel design, new Weather Sealing and possibly FF lenses.

Photokina would be a good time to announce the new line, show a few lenses or a mock-up, release a new Lens Roadmap - maybe with some firmer dates included.
Any resemblance to the * Tele Zoom on the latest roadmap (published on February 6th, 2014), whose range is approximately 70-200mm and which is not a DA*, would be purely coincidental .

How I wish they will announce that all lenses will now be all weather complete with factory warranty.

How I wish it didn't say "2014 or later".

Careful what you wish for - they might update the roadmap with "2015 or later"

I think it would be easier for them to just put "Later*" on the road map, then they could skip most revisions they make on it.

It would surely boost customers' confidence in the brand if they started getting more specific and committal on lens releases. How many camera sales have they lost because no one knows if and when they will really come out with a lens someone is interested in?

Come on people testing those Pentax cameras - Leak some damn photos under other pseudo names. Next we will have news about "Leaked images"!

Lets do it!

P.S. I am testing a full frame Pentax K-1 with ISO 300,000 and Leaf Shutter. It also has the "Movie Button" and "Swivel Screen". Camera has NFC/wifi/blue tooth. 51 AF points with 39 Cross type AF points. 11 Frames per second. Camera will be launched with a K-mount converter for full frame lenses (So people who don't want to get rid of their vintage glass can use the new system WITHOUT Vignetting). Flash Sync speed of 1/500. Processor SAFOX XXX AFZ M D N TLD module. 30 Mega Pixels. Built in Full-Tether using USB 3.0 / HDMI and Wifi with native support to Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw.

P.P.S The camera will be designed to take X-Ray of previous dead presidents and their ghosts.
I love it DeeDee. You are too much... X-Ray of dead presidents!!

BTW, I like the specs on the future FF camera. We might just get it if Ricoh keeps this pace of innovation.

In my opinion Pentax is building the hype around the brand leaking Q and 645 lens. Maybe those new products are not the "main dish" for Photokina? Of course, it will be presented there but in my opinion something bigger is coming up.

The way they are going I think "much later" is more likely or "eventually" or just plain "maybe"

"This is the year" seems to be the vibe every time Photokina comes around, but this year, I'd say it's now or never re' the FF. The market is moving on.

No, I really don't think it's now or never. Why would it be? The market is changing, but slowly - "FF" is still niche, the competition is more or less about the same - the only addition is Sony's entrance on the mirrorless "FF" market, but again the MILCs are not taking over anytime soon.
