If Hoya removed the DA*30 and TC from the roadmap to limit leaks and hints, then why keep the DA Telephoto on there?
I don't know
It's just an opinion.

But "DA Super Telephoto" is a lot vaguer than DA* 30 or TC, isn't it?
DA* 30 gives away everything but speed, and you don't need to be a rocket scientist to know what a TC means.

New lensroadmap with bad news...
Don't think this was mentioned but the 60-250 is still under "future"... with a "spring 2009" release.

Super Mega-Zoom

Using this new feature I'll be able to take a picture and be able to see what I'll be doing five minutes into the future. Should be able to cut down on speeding tickets now.

"Coupled with the Intelligent Zoom function, the X70ís zoom range can be extended to approximately 150 times (for a focal length of an astonishing approximately 3900mm in the 35mm format) without compromising the optical performance of the zoom lens".
