CP+ - Question suggestions for Sigma and Tamron

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.

Tell them there is at least one member here who will order the 150-600 as soon as it is released in Pentax mount.

Ask "them" what it would take to release the 8-16 again...

What are their plans for expanding their K-mount offerings now that Pentax has stepped up with a FF model - can't think of any others that are really important now. Thanks!

To both Sigma and Tamron, ask them the availability of their 150-600 zooms.
Thank you!

Uh, I think they already did. See this thread:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/10-pentax-slr-lens-discussion/282269-sigm...ble-again.html

As of this morning, it shows as available in the US Sigma store (but the price has gone up to US$699. It was $649 in December.).

The new Sigma 24/1,4 seams nice and also 77mm filter, expect it comes in K mount!?
APS: Sigma have 30/1,4, can we have a ~20/1,4 too (Pentax don“t have any fast wide except DA14) ?

Are there any plans to update lenses such as the 8-16 to be faster for astrophotography? How about anything like the 10-20, but FF compatible?

Specifically I like you to ask Sigma if they plan to release the 50mm f1.4, rumored 85mm f1.4 and 24-105 f4 ART lens with Pentax mounts. The same question should be ask of Tamron about the new SP 15-30 f2.8.

What is there feelings about the inconsistency of the 18-35 MM Art lens in the Pentax mount? Will the focus issues be corrected?

With video capabilities generally improving in the industry, will they bring back optical stabilization as an option for Pentax, or other systems where the IBIS is disabled in video mode?

(I think I know the answer to this.)

Will you ever offer mount swapping to a Pentax mount on lenses that currently do not have a Pentax mount offered such as the 120-300 f/2.8?
