What a puzzling word salad right there. DSLRs are going strong, combined with no significant DSLR product... Puzzling. 

Anyway... The only "going strong" DSLRs are the FF products from Canon and Nikon (and maybe the Nikon D500 and new Canon EOS 90D). Both the DSLR and the MILC markets are shrinking.
Yeah, that is really working for Pentax.
I was obviously referring to the sales* - despite almost all the effort being put on the MILCs, the DSLRs are selling in higher numbers than the MILCs. OTOH you're unsurprisingly wrong - the bulk of DSLRs are lower end products, it is the MILCs which are on average higher value.

How's going with this L alliance, by the way? How about Olympus? Wink

*rather, production and shipping as reported by CIPA. The 90D isn't included yet.

There are exactly 3 Tamron rebadges in Pentax' lens line: the DA 18-270, the D FA 15-30 and the D FA 24-70.
The "mostly refreshed versions" claim is equally false. Since 2015, when they started introducing the FF products, they had 11 K-mount lenses, of which:
- 7 new
- 2 rebadged Tamrons
- 2 HD versions of existing lenses
