Photokina 2014: Pentax K3 Prestige / K-S1 - Is that it for K-mount news?

One week to go to Photokina 2014, and all eyes are on the world's largest photography trade show.

For the K-mount, Ricoh has announced the stylish K-S1 kitted with the distinctly unstylish and oh-so-trad DA-L 18-55 lens (and two months ago, the K-3 "Prestige Edition" ): nothing else for the K-mount.

Is that it? Or is there more to come? What do you think?

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

I heard a rumor that they will release a weather sealed K-mount rear lens cap too.

Not interested - my current K-50 does that job very well, even if it is larger than it need be!

The rear caps aren't WR...? I still need to carry a plastic bag for the WR lens and what use is this ?! I think this should be an easy fix. Maybe firmware. I bet they won't support the older cameras. Do you think a bead of denturseal on the cap is a workaround...
