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!

The sharpness score is still about the same for both lenses.  The prime should do better than this.
