CP+ Pentax Interview - Question Suggestions

As in previous years, we plan on interviewing Ricoh Imaging representatives at CP+ 2015. Our focus will of course be Pentax products and the photo industry.

Please use this thread to suggest interview questions. Remember:
  • One question per post (posts with more than one question will be ignored)
  • Don't ask about unreleased products / specs (these questions won't be answered)
  • Please limit suggestions to topics of general interest rather than your personal wishlist/concerns

Are you planning to update FA Limited lenses and if yes can you tell us what is considered (coatings, quickshift, WR, motors, ...)?

Are there any extra features being considered that utilize the SR? (ex. the E-M5II's high-res mode)

Do you have any plans to introduce your new FF sensor into a fixed lens body. (i.e. updated GR?)

The just announced Full Frame camera is this a "one off model" in the K/KS range of cameras or is it part of a whole range of Full Frame models, what's Ricoh's thinking on this.

When will your SLRs feature AF Focus Tracking comparable to or better than CaNikon?

Does Ricoh/Pentax plan to update flash capabilities (i.e. raise the sync speed to 1/250s) on their cameras and open to third party manufacturers to produce usable wirelesses triggers for Pentax cameras?

Dynamic Range

Will a wider dynamic range be a differentiator for the upcoming FF?

Do you plan on enhancing the current P-TTL any time in the future?
I mean will there be TTL without preflash and/or "dumb" second curtain trigger for manual flashes (dream on, I know...)?

Do you envisage a pro-level aps-c body ala k3 existing alongside the FF or will aps-c drop down a rung?

Any plans to get Pentax in more large US retailers such as Walmart, best buy, and target?
