I sure hope they are ready to sell the 50/1.4 and 85/1.4 already
Normally, they would have the DFA*50 and DA*11-18.
and... a 3D printed version of the DFA(*?)85

3D printed version?
Black Plastic Pipe with 2 lenses on both ends?
Or Hologram version?

It doesn’t matter as long as it is on something absorbent to catch the drool!

It doesn't matter what mock-ups they show because the new Pentax K-2 will draw all attention.

Maybe they'll have something about the new APS UWA 11-18??
The K3 replacement would be a bad idea: they'd be sued by the families of all the pentaxians that had a heart-attack and died...with a smile on their face and the wallet in their hand.

Will we get a mock up of the 85/1.4?
I think they've made one up out of a discarded Quaker Oats container.

And exclusive one made of nickel plated trash bin, tru-metal metallic version. And if front cap size matters, its impressive

Let's get real.
Ricoh built an entire new division just for 3D-printing of D FA mock-up lenses:
3D Printers | Ricoh Europe
That's how important Pentax is for them!

(Yes, I expect they'll launch the D FA* 50mm f/1.4 at CP+).

And - in this case - for prototyping.

It's probably the right size!

DA * 11-18 / 2.8 was a surprise for me. If I update from DA12-24 is doubtful, but it's weatherproof and has 2.8. It indicates that a K3III will be coming this year.
K3II was a minor upgrade from K3, so I think Pentax makes a major change to K3III.
I am doubtful that it is already featured on CP +, but if so, visitors can go over to the displays next and ask Sigma and Tamron about lenses to K3III.
A GR 3 may come or an updated WG-M2, a more advanced WG-M is possible as well.
