I don't feel 5.6 is fast enough, because 400mm is really a lens you want to be able to put a 1.4tc on, and still have decent light. So if Pentax dóes release a 400mm, I hope it is going to be f4.

A 400mm f4 is a large and expensive lens. The Canon 400mm f4 weighs over four pounds and is almost $6000. A Pentax may be a bit cheaper, but you're still probably looking at a $5000 lens. That's well beyond my interest.
