Adam, would appreciate a reattack on this earlier posted question...

Will Pentax/Ricoh renew/release "past" camera accessories?
Examples are...extension tubes, split image focusing screens, macro bellows, right angle viewer, 3-D lens/viewer, etc.

During the interview, that you posted (Thank you!), they said that it was "important to the 645 series", but what about the bigger picture/line up?

Yes, that is a serious issue for support for the lineup.

For both Tamron and Sigma, ask about their new 70-200 versions and if they will be released for K mount please.
Same for their 150-600 zooms.
Also ask if the upcoming FF changes their mind about releasing Pentax mount lenses? Thanks!

This was already included in our interview, which is now posted on our homepage. This thread is only for Sigma/Tamron question suggestions.

We have plenty of extra time at the CP+ 2015 show, so if there are any questions you guys would like my journalist to ask Sigma and/or Tamron reps, please post them here.

Note that we already plan to ask if there are more Pentax lenses on the horizon in light of the FF, as well as specifically about the reported AF issues with the 18-35mm and other Sigma lenses.
It would be interesting to know if either Tamron or Sigma sees a market demand for WR lenses and if they have any plans.

Would they consider expanding the features of the dock? Namely an automated focus adjustment system to be used with their dock? Something that can more automatically gauge what micro adjustments to focus are needed, and then make them itself?
