This may convince me to buy a Q7, a Pentax K to Q mount adapter, and have a go at some serious maqro shooting. I wish they'd officially announce the specs for this lens right now!

Egads, if that's the most exciting thing to come out in k-mount, color me disappointed! I'd like the 16-85ish to materialize, and an HD-coatings-plus-faster-focus-motors upgrade for all the top-end glass...

That would be an embarrassment, I think. I think we're going to have a new camera and a couple of lenses, but we'll see.

A FF camera in the form of a wrist watch, with three interchangeable sensors, 12,24 and 36MP, with a flexible glass pancake lens to cover focal range from 10 to 200mm, and coffee maker

Only 36? Pentax is doomed.
Also, how many programs on coffeemaker?

We already know which ones:
  • 645 mount: HD Pentax DA 645 28-45mm f/4.5 AL SDM AW
  • Q mount: Pentax-09 Telephoto Macro 23mm f/2.8
  • K mount: HD Pentax-DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL DC WR
Wow, didn't know about the two last ones.
Actually the new K mount trans-standard can be some kind of a blockbuster, to stop the eternal "screw-driven" negative point in the standard kit reviews and tests... and with WR also.

Come on people testing those Pentax cameras - Leak some damn photos under other pseudo names. Next we will have news about "Leaked images"!

Lets do it!

P.S. I am testing a full frame Pentax K-1 with ISO 300,000 and Leaf Shutter. It also has the "Movie Button" and "Swivel Screen". Camera has NFC/wifi/blue tooth. 51 AF points with 39 Cross type AF points. 11 Frames per second. Camera will be launched with a K-mount converter for full frame lenses (So people who don't want to get rid of their vintage glass can use the new system WITHOUT Vignetting). Flash Sync speed of 1/500. Processor SAFOX XXX AFZ M D N TLD module. 30 Mega Pixels. Built in Full-Tether using USB 3.0 / HDMI and Wifi with native support to Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw.

P.P.S The camera will be designed to take X-Ray of previous dead presidents and their ghosts.
Sounds great but does it tie your shoes and make coffee for you in the morning ?

What I would like to see from pentax is something like:

"Here is our new Pentax F-01d camera with a 24x36mm sensor"

"We are saving in production cost by NOT including ANY video capabilities and this will result in about 500$ savings at purchase time."

"With that 500$, you will be able to buy our now super-duper made-for-video webcam..... or you can buy yet another PENTAX lens ! ! ! !"

The reality would be something like:
"We decided to not include ANY video capabilities, thus making it a niche product. It's disabled in firmware, so there is no production cost advantage of doing this."
"In effect, the product will cost $1000 more than a video-enabled camera with the same hardware would".
"Now our marketing department is trying to figure out how to sell it".

Sadly, this is probably closer to the truth.

Video capability, at least at the level found in Pentax Cameras, is basically a free feature, since it entails only firmware modification taking advantage of already-existing capabilities in the commodity hardware. The only cost is a small amount of extra programming time, which, amortized over thousands of camera sales (bear in mind, the code can often be re-used across models), likely adds at most a few dollars per camera in costs. The story is different for cameras designed from the ground up to be video champs, such as Panasonic's GH4 or Sony's A7s, where substantial engineering resources are devoted to video ability, but that's never been Pentax's approach.

Fortunately, although the increased cost of the K5IIs shows that Ricoh is not above charging a bit more for a camera that costs less to produce, they are not Leica and probably can't get away with outrageously more for an intentionally feature crippled camera.
