645Z and lenses available on a 'per-use' basis, worldwide, on demand, for a fee.
Actually that *would* be a game changer, and would probably also stimulate a lot of sales.

This announcement is being done by an MF guy.. so should we not be expecting an MF announcement? .. so my guess would be pixel shift implemented on a 645z.

Nice brain storming in this thread. Ricoh/Pentax should listen and pick up some ideas.

the fact that they use a medium format photog to bring the news, i think it will not be a new tech or new product.


maybe a strong rebate for the 645z, down to 6000$, bringin it into the territory of the nikon and canon flagships?

Rent one's equipment (body and/or lenses) is quite common among medium format users (Hasselblad and Phase One), at least here in Europe.

Without prior implementing in-body image stabilisation?

But not at the prices Pentax might be able to offer?

One of the first 25 purchasers of the new FF will also receive a brand new Ferrari 488 GTB
More than likely it will be some stupid app for iphone and android.

645Z doesn't have an internal SR system so that would be quite an announcement if made.

Built in automated lens calibration ala Dot Tune. Point the camera at a target, push the button and walk away for ten minutes.

You are such a cynic... but what's with "Collect underpants." Is there something about you we should know?

Pentaxians are full of good ideas, ricoh are you reading this forum?

In all likelyhood this is about pixel shifting on the Pentax K-3 II. But we will see maybe there is more to it.

I can't help but think this is a subscription software program run by Alex Munoz. I hope I am wrong.
