Do you even realize Pentax is the only one with a 28-105mm in its current line?
No wonder the others' 24-105 are selling "better" than lenses they don't have. I could also say, Pentax' 28-105 is selling very well compared to their non-existing 24-105.

Who on Earth wants a 28-105/3.5-5.6 when a 24-105/4 or 24-120/4 is available in CaNikon's lineup? The K-1 is around since February 2016 and the lens line-up has still some weird gaps. No fast prime below 31 mm (and by "fast" I would even include an f/2) and no fast prime over 85. I wonder why Pentax tooke the trouble to release a FF body back in the day.
Pentax wants to keep the niche of DSLR lovers, so it needs to concentrate its efforts on making lenses where DSLRs are as good as MILC
On a 85f1.4 SLRs have no chance vs mirrorless so why invest there ???
Aside lenses SLRs still do very well with flash photography, did Pentax invest here ???
for the outdoors and hiking I easily prefer DSLRs, camera always ready, battery never dies so a decent standard zoom is more than needed, 24-70f2.8 is nice but it's not the lens for that, Pentax must put some efforts for such a lens and we all know standard zooms usually sell very well.
I noted also Pentax APS-C line is well covered, they must play aggressively the prices game here
