Is the 2019 Telephoto Lens on the roadmap possibly iterating a replacement for the now existing Pentax 150-450? Also, if so, would it be both FF and aps-c compatible?

You may not know, but if there is any general indication it will be a 150-450 replacement, please let me know.

Thank you.

My understanding is that it will be a consumer-level alternative. After all, a cheap-ish/compact FF tele zoom is currently missing from the lineup.

Probably a 70-300 variable aperture zoom.

What I am looking for is the best telephoto zoom Pentax has in 150-450/500 range. If it is the current 150-450 I would consider it now and not look forward to an advanced type replacement in the line up.

Thank you Adam. I am just trying to make sure I do not miss out on an upgrade.

Thank you Rondec. The information helps me with my telephoto upgrade decision making. As I said I am looking at the Pentax 150-450. It would replace my Sigma 150-500.
