I wonder what Pentax has planned for the Tele-zoom. From the map it looks like it could cover most of 100-400mm. I presume this would be f4-5.6 and compete against similar offerings from Canon, Nikon and Sony.

I think you are right on this , but personally I would prefer a constant F4 and WR.

Pentax will have a challenge competing with the existing competitor lenses. The new Nikon 80-400mm @ 400mm is already sharper than Pentax's 300mm f4 (even after stopping down). Pentax really needs a prime like IQ with this zoom.

Totally invalid!!!! the score was artificially higher as the pixel count was higher...

Reality check!
