Best prediction:

Pentax Ricoh finally wakes up and listens to her supporters for once after 20 years..
That doesn't make sense. Ricoh has only owned the Pentax brand name for 35 months.

I hear there is a new 41.5mm constant aperture F/8 on the way to fill the gap between the DA 40mm and the FA 43mm. It will have the new HD coatings and will be priced at $1,200.00.

How could they do all that if...

Since this is the "news and rumors" I'm not sure if pure speculation or wishful thinking is allowed but if it is, here is my prediction:
Lens:
16-85 f/4 k-mount
150-450ish for k-mount
Macro lens for Q
24-70 f/2.8 k-mount
70-210 f/2.8 k-mount

Cameras:
K-S1
Q-S1
K-50II
LXD
they're doomed?

Cheers,
Cameron

It will be 80-160mm for 645 system.
In K-mount, the zoom lenses in the roadmap surely will be announced. FF Body is least expected, but let's see if prototype might be shown.

I think it so funny to see the origin of these rumors. This quote on Pentax Forums is a link to a post on Photo Rumors, which is in turn a quote of a post on Pentax Forums. In a few hours Photo Rumors will post this link as proof that the rumor is true since it was posted on Pentax Forums.

The original post is from Michael Reichmann Michael Reichmann

He has been using the 645Z and wrote a review about it. He has some 645 lenses that he is reviewing and Pentax has told him that a leaf shutter lens is on the way. New tethering for the 645 that should also be available for the K-3 since they share so much technology.
