And 7pm in Tokyo, which is odd for an announcement, in particular on a Friday.

Regular Ricoh announcement take place at 7am Tokyo time / 12am Paris time. I don't see why this one should be an exception.

I was just reacting to the idea of being blown out of a chair. No cynicism here - I recently bought the DA 300mm and 100mm macro and couldn't be more happy!

I bet D-FA 15-30 / 2.8 DC ED AL AW and hope they managed to throw a drop-in filter inside

Maybe a SamYang, or Mitakon, or YongNuo?
[just teasing]

Tamron would be OK. The Tamron and Pentax lens factories are only a few kms apart in Hanoi. Easy to organise production sharing.

OK, Tamron is not bad also. I used it previous month on D750 body. Excellent but not brilliant. At least it won't be too expensive which is good for a kit lens.

The new 24-70 will be an in house design. Pure Pentax. The wide zoom may be the Tamron 15-30 formula licensed from Tamron. (but that is not definitive it's just conjecture)
