You don't need a huge lens to take a a long distance photo.

Isn't one of the features of the 645D it's superb viewfinder?

Of course. It's amazing, really. Would be even better with fast glass but it's still way better than my MX, which has one of the best viewfinders ever made for 135.

True enough, that is why I was careful to say large aperature, AND long focal lengths. These samples are all good (taken in fairly strong light), but not really great technical quality if we are honest. But compared to the cost of a FZ70 one can not complain Fully extended i would say the lens on the Fz70 is kind huge.

Just imagine a Nex with a Sigma 50-500. The balance will be awful.

Do you know of any small 1200mm eqiv lenses ? Most people use the 50-500 on a monopod or tripod so what is the problem ?

No i don't know of any. That was the point. If you want tele and large apperature, MILC gives clumsy handling. Even if I use a DA lens on the Q10 a 1200mm equivalent will be large if i want decent maximum aperature. I can always use the FA 80-200/4.7-5.6, but the quality will be bad. Lots of people have posted great pictures handheld with the big Sigmas. 50-500, 150-500 and 500.

Of course 1200mm is extreme, but even a lens like the DA*300 feels weird on something as small as the NEX.

Well just some specs like the rumors. Pentax will probably give an official press release soon. That is what I expect.

40 - 50 MP sensor
Not even sure how many MP
SAFOX XI AF module
Frame rate: 3 fps
Highest ISO: 102400 or 204800
Not even sure what the highest ISO is
Shutter life: 100,000
Bit low for an expensive pro-cam? The K-3 last longer
Live view (movie function possible)
USB 3.0 support for tethered shooting
Price around 10,000 USD
Again 'around', so no facts
Release date in mid April 2014

Mr Murano of Ricoh Imaging told in a CP+ interview that we (users) should look forward to the new 645D. It is their aim to make it the ultimate image making machine on the planet (rough translation, but coveys the spirit of enthusiasm).

Not saying that it's real, but it's double of what the first 645D can do. A plausible improvement.
What I'm unsure of is the 3fps.

It's just estimated specs.

If the camera has 1.5-2 fps, 100 000 shutter life is cool.

In theory, it may as well be true.
If the sensor has 50MP, it ends up something like a K-3 at 6fps, which the new Prime Imaging processor can handle easily. I also believe the mirror and the shutter control system used in the new 645D is borrowed from the K-3's, same as AF, and a plethora of other things.
Again, I would not be surprised.
