Any news on the tele-zoom?

The Canon 100-400 is a nice lens despite its age. To place the K3 amongst the wildlife contenders (as Thom suggests) Pentax ABSOLUTELY needs a weather sealed DA* 100-400-ish lens (or that TC, but we said that already).

The 560 sure is nice but due to budget is simply isn't an option for most of us.

Tamron puts a K-mount on the 200-500 and 900$ gets one close enough to the 560 given the K3 has SR.  The 100-400 WR lens would be sweet also but not cheap.

Cheers.
