How many people, other than the diehard Pentax enthusiasts who populate these forums, really remember the Auto 110? How many remember it fondly? It wasn't one of Pentax's stellar sales performers.
Agreed. I strongly suspect that the DSLR is a transient form of camera; a micro DSLR .. why? What's more, the Auto 110 doesn't have any real caché in Japan. You can't find anyone displaying them in the used camera stores, let alone like they'd be something worth buying. The LX commands ¥400,000 asking prices .. the Auto 110 is absent. You'll see them with other 'curio' cameras at the used camera swap shows.

I'd rather see Pentax put their resources into a decent mid-range WR/tough P&S.

That's quite interesting; thanks for sharing.

"110D" image circle would match m4/3 sensors?

QuoteQuote:
[...] Tokina will introduce at PMA (CliQ) 2011 two autofocus lenses for the m4/3 mount. The first one will be a 17/2.0 or faster pancake. The second one will be a 8-16mm/3.5-4.5 or faster. [...]

Tokina ... Hoya ... Pentax ...

Coincidence?

More than a coincidence I presume. So many Tokina lenses happen to be based on Pentax-patented formulas...

A Pentax m4/3rds would be great.



BTW the Pentax 110 with winder and flash is not that small compared to the new GF2 w/flash.

I have 110 lenses adapted to mu 43. Cute but very poor quality pics.

I, for one, would love to see a "110 digital" that used the old 110 lenses. Please and thank you.

A Pentax µAPS-C would be great too:

As for the sensor... Sony can produce half format any time if a customer likes and even putting the K-5 sensor and only using a crop would be ok as the chip is still small and cheap enough.
I was wondering... from a complete ignorant point of view... if only the central portion of the sensor would be used, it could be somehow implemented a shake reduction using the unused part, without having the sensor moving? i. e., the camera reads how much the camera is moving and uses part of the sensor accordingly?

Not for a single exposure. Maybe for movies, to make every frame "aligned".

Correct.
Read out is too slow (about 1/10s for a still image) and therefore, the method wouldn't work for any exposure times faster than this. For video, yes. But having such large sensors just for stabilized video is expensive.

Why do people want to use the old 110 lenses? Are they even any good? I have never used one, but the ones I held were very plasticy.

Also note that 110 lenses do not have an aperture. They are all f2.8 (is there a fast lens in the line up? Someone correct me.) the aperture is built into the 110 body and functions as the shutter as well as the aperture.

I'm not saying Pentax can't or won't build this type of shutter/aperture arrangment again, but I doubt they would.

I don't understand why the interest in the old 110 Pentax. I had one and it was a joke compared to my Pentax LX not to mention my 6x7. I think the m4/3rds size sensor is the sweet spot for a hybrid still/video camera and Panasonic can't make the GH2 fast enough since B&H and others sell them as fast as they get them in.

The results on micro 4/3 with the old Pentax-110 lenses are very good I think. Here are some very fine samples:

Asahi Pentax-110 1:2.8 50mm::Manual Focus Lenses
Asahi Pentax-110 1:2.8 70mm::Manual Focus Lenses

Better than "good enough", I think! Even when one realizes that these were shot wide open.
