I would like to see the future cameras have no mirror and shutter. All you have to do are to adjust the parameters till you get the composition in live-view you want, then press a remote and the camera will record that particular frame.
They have those things...they're called P&S cameras

Contrast detect AF wasn't nearly as quick or accurate (P&S cameras don't have narrow DOF because their sensors are so small so they don't have to be accurate) until relatively recently...

I was thinking my 4x5 with the 7 inch f/3.4 Aldus anastigmat barrel lens fit that description too.
It's amazing that people want worse viewfinders in the name of "progress". It's sort of like cutting of one's nose to spite one's face.
It figures though, pretty much every camera improvement we've seen in the last 100 years has resulted in poorer quality in one metric or another.

Yeah. I don't understand the EVIL camera obsession. I hate EVFs. I hate composing on the back screen of my camera. It's a different headspace when you are seeing through your camera and seeing exactly what it sees.

Hehehe, I just had a funny thought - K6 will be K5 without stains on the sensor

When is the next Pentax camera due to come out? Is it every year or two years?

In that case it could be a K30 or a K3?
