Long summer

QuoteOriginally posted by Uluru Quote
To put things in perspective; well, it seems that many months after the FotoKina Pentax Ricoh has affirmed the claim that they should stay firmly supporting their mounts (and surprise us with other treats as well).

- MX-1 happened, first prosumer pocket cam from Pentax in a while
- GR happened too, and o boy, it's a delight
- Q7 is a refresh and a delight too
- K50 and K500 welcome and smart additions to the K-mount too

I admit, before the April 17th, or before the GR announcement, things looked bleak.
But when writing this in mid June, the dedication is here and visible.

It's good to revisit these old threads and add an up to date perspective on some old thoughts and fears.
And then there is always the hope for September . . .

I think Uluru got it right. This year has been quite promising, within realistic expectations. The Company seems to be on the right track, although the products may not be very attractive to the followers of this forum (GR excepted). It would seem logical, however, that the next product, which I would expect to be released in "September" (the season before Christmas shopping), might be aimed at us. Some may complain that it is a K5-iii rather than a K3 though. I believe K5 is such a good camera that a iii, iv, v, vi ... would actually be very good. Improve, don't change.
