I asked for the source of photographs, not for the source of information.

Kenspo, do you believe that those photos could be from official marketing publication ?

Yes

In addition to the current production FA-Limited and D-FA Macro's (are the FA50 f1.4 and FA 35 f2 still actually in production?) they could maybe re-launch a set of recent lenses under the normal D-FA designation, more lightweight/compact rather than D-FA* or Limited ranges....based in recent glass:

D-FA 20mm f2.8
D-FA 20-35mm f4
D-FA 35mm f2
D-FA 50mm f1.8

A lightweight D-FA 85mm (f1.8) could be an advantage, maybe a 135mm f2.5 as well..... just dreaming and getting over excited....

If you are talking about the FF, its pro..Not midrange..The coming aps-c is midrange + with same sensor as K-3.

I thought the APS-C camera shown at CES had a 20 Mpx sensor. Is another one due, too?

No internal specs were given. That was conjecture from the K-S1

Pentax K-S2 also quite certain it is a 20Mpx sensor.

I dont know if there are anymore aps-c due soon. I was told, not by my regular source/contact, that this one have the same sensor as K-3, so i wont confirm this 100%..

So what else will be announced beside those two DFA lenses ?
K-50 replacement with new 18-55mm
Any possibility with compact premium ? Or Ricoh GR ?

Yep the coming APS-C. I hope it's cheaper and comes with a battery grip.

If the upcoming APS-C has the K-3's sensor (and AF module), it will be a great product! I'd also think that if that's the case, then the K-3II is coming sooner than many would have expected... But sorry to interrupt all the FFury...

What I would like to see in DFA version:


Primes:
DFA 20 f2.8
DFA 28 f2.8
DFA 50 f1.7
DFA 85 f1.4
DFA 135 f2.8
DFA 200 f4 macro


Zooms:
DFA 20-35 f4
DFA 28-70 f2.8
DFA 70-200 f2.8 (5th February, right?)
DFA 250-600 f5.6



Plus one fish-eye and that's all I need
(And some of the lenses I already have in FA...)

I don't know where you got that idea. While Tokina might not have any current lenses in K, they have had a long, long history of K releases, including several of their ATX and ATX pro lenses, as well as tons of lower end glass. And, as Banep mentioned, Tokina has actually manufactured some of the K mount glass sold under Pentax's own name!
But it is clear that recently (since their colla boration with Pentax) they never sold their lenses for Pentax, not even lenses made outside the Pentax collaboration.
As for "Tokina collaborated lenses", most but one or two were Pentax designs sold to Tokina, not the other way around.
