Two questions, one thread: Telephotos and focus screens, oh my!

Question #1: does anyone know if the K10/20/7 use the same size focus screen? I installed one on my k10 and I love it. When my K7 arrives at my door in a couple of hours, I want to swap my focus screen over to it.

Question 2:Any news or rumours about Pentax releasing a f2.8 telephoto zoom? I've got the 50-135, and I need a bit more reach, but I'm not happy with the limitations of a prime like the current 300mm. I know Sigma has some great offerings, but I wish Pentax would make something.

Question 1: No, different.

Question 2: According the most current lens road map, The DA* 200/2.8 is the next longest lens at 2.8...longer lenses are f4.

Well, phooey on that. Is it known if anyone yet makes a screen that will fit the K7?

Tamron also makes a 70-200/2.8. But rather than continue to discuss the relative merits of it versus the Sigma here, I'd suggest starting a new thread in the Lens forum, and keep this discussions focused (sorry) on the first question, since that's the one relevant to this forum.
