If a "reliable source" confirms, at least partially, this news, this has the makings of a megathread part II!

a 400mm seems plausible since they have said before that there will be some super teleporto. annoying they still havent released sdm tc's.

the rest seems veeery strange.. 50mm 1.0 makes no sense at all. and 20mm f2.8 also makes no sense. they already have 21mm limited and 20mm is not wide in aps-c and if they were planning on making ff lenses then the first thing they should make is a 24-70 and 70-200 f2.8 pair, that would pretty much cover ff initially in just 2 lenses.

faking a pic of the lens roadmap is not particularly hard

50/1.0 and 20/2.8 are lenses for FF camera. OPEN YOUR EYES, DEAR FRIEND!

VERY NEED!!!

DA* 200/300 and I hope DA*400 cover FF too.

Guys, Pentax has DFA macro lenses, why you so sceptical about F?

I am getting a funny feeling that Pentax will release a FF camera in the next 12 months. They said there will be three new types of cameras to be released. So, could it be the K-7, 645D, and the FF...how else could one explain this lens map ?

Just to make it clear for everyone:

DA* = crop lenses, apart from the >=200mm lenses which are fullframe by nature (because of the telephoto construction).
DA Limited = small crop lenses
DFA* = FF lenses (with diaphragm rings just like the DFA 100mm macro?)
DFA 645 = 645D lenses

Makes sense, if they're planning to release a FF camera next year, zooms are easy, but to make a 50/1.0 lens? That would make people stand up and take notice. besides, Pentax is playing to its strengths, particularly in the arena of prime lenses... I'm guessing limited lenses for the K-7, then fast, prestige lenses for the FF camera...(50/1.0, 20/2.8, 85/1.2 ... all the lenses I'd need with a full frame camera )

And there maybe could be a kit lens for the camera too. :P
For ff, so high performance?

And is the DA*60-250 suitable for ff?

DA* - Pentax started to indicate simply
Lenses are designed exclusively for use with PENTAX digital SLR cameras to deliver top-quality digital images

Digital SLR-exclusive optical design. Their image circle is perfectly proportioned to the image-sensor size of PENTAX digital SLR cameras

And it's ALL. Don't you know it...?

I do, but it's Pentax who wants to play it the hard way with its naming scheme. I blame them for that but I'll forgive everything when I have the K-3 in my hands

I hope that all lenses for APS-C and FF are real.

Actually it looks like it is..

On the first small photo the text is below a lens that looks exactly like the 645 55mm f2.8. On the new images the text is over that particular lens, and this person is suddenly holding his finger over this mystical 50mm f1.0. Why cover it up if it was shown here already ?

On the first photo the * is missing, then after a lot of people complain that in no way a lens of that class would miss a star, it magically reappears in the new images. If you look at the current roadmap that star isn't exactly small enough to disappear in that first shot.

If you check out the new images the part above "future lenses" ie the current lineup seems to be exactly the same as the current roadmap has:

1. On the second image showing the 50/1.0 there are two magenta arrows pointing at the 50mm mark, just as the current map where the 16-50 and 50-135 meet.

2. On the third image, showing the 135/2.8 ltd there is an arrow ending at 135, just like the 50-135 and a dot at 200, just like the 200/2.8

With me so far?

Then where the hell is the 60-250 on that map?
