The 50mm f/1.4 lens, was first shown in February 2017, and is an All-Weather (AW) weather-sealed lens, compatible with the full-frame Pentax K-1. The lens offers a close focusing distance of 40cm, and is scheduled for release in Spring 2018.

The wide-angle 11-18mm lens is equivalent to 17mm-27.5mm in 35mm terms, and is designed to be used with APS-C DSLRs, such as the Pentax K-3 II, KP and K-70. The lens is scheduled for release in Summer 2018. 

Ricoh are showing an updated lens roadmap, with details of these two new lenses on Ricoh's website (pdf), which also shows an 85mm f/1.4 lens is in the works.

Fair enough to say that these will be two very good lenses from Pentax.

Now they should produce an affordable 500mm F4 lens for APS-C sensor like my Pentax K-3
and then the line is totaly complete.
