Too predictable But I love that the GR is on a consistent 2-year update cycle.

I've only had my my GR for less than 2 months! How dare they!!

Only kidding, I love it so much, new tech wouldl be nice but I can see the current camera serve me for years to come.

I would love to see weather proofing, shake reduction (I know that one is a stretch), and WiFi with NFC.

Unlikely I think due to the size.
An hybrid AF as seen on the GRDIV would be interesting.

I doubt this gets the K-3 sensor, but the K-S2 sensor would definitely not be a bad thing.

If it's a choice between a new sensor or WR/SR, I take WR/SR. The 16 megapickle sensor is still very competitive.

Yes, my impression is that snap shooting on the street is less likely to show shake/blur on a 16 mpx camera than on a 24 mpx one. Maybe I'm wrong but I've noticed that it is harder to get really solid shots on the fly with the K3 than with the K5. The K3 really needs to be held still and firm which is pretty hard in many situations when fast reactions are called for. A 16 mpx sensor but with even better DR or low light performance could be amazing.

I love my GR. The only thing that would make it better for me would be if it had SR built in. And maybe wifi.

The sensor needs update - K3 sensor is already 2 yrs old I believe, so that is the least it should have.
WR will be great - as some report dust get in the sensor and it is a pain to remove.

if it have SR -- this really show the fruit of the Ricoh-Pentax merger.

what even better is, update on the lens with larger aperture, say f2.

would love to get one.
