The Tamron lens I'd like to see in a K mount is the SP 15-30/2.8 Di VC USD.
Rumors are that Pentax will rebrand that one or at the least use its optical formula with their own coatings. Seems likely and would keep tamron from releasing their own version of the lens in the k mount.

I don't know how much info Tamron has about Pentax's activities.
They know everything they need to know.

Wasn't there a story that someone named Hirakawa now designs lenses for Tamron? I wonder if he ever talks to anyone in the Ricoh lens design department.
Yes,Jun Hirakawa is a Tamron engineer now.
But Tamron knows a lot about the camera company's 😉

I wonder if either of these two rumoured Tamron lenses will eventually be available in K-mount from Tamron, or rebranded to be sold as Pentax?

35mm f1.8 and 45mm f1.8

Posted on digicame-info today. Apparently, they'll be released in the "near future" in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts.

Sony wouldn't allow it.
Buying back Kenko-Tokina from Hoya would be fun to watch though
A pity Hoya wouldn't allow it either.

(ESL problems. Sorry. I meant that to be mildly ironic, as if to say, "Do you really think Tamron doesn't know?")
