Why? Wouldn't Pentax want to make and sell their own lenses?

I know that at present Pentax has few full-frame lenses. That actually puts them ahead. When the *ist D came out, Pentax had no APS-C lenses. Pentax has several full-frame primes still in production. All they would need to get started would be a normal zoom (say 24-70/80) and a 70-300 zoom. I'll bet they've already designed those, and only need to start producing them.
