a real gamechange for me would be a SLR with mirrorless capabilities ... e.g. with a mirror that turns completely transparent upon a button pressed: AF with sensor data and the image projected on the screen (like normal liveview) BUT with an additional overlay or screen on the focus screen ... that would be awesome - choose OVF or EVF with focus peaking according to the situation and your likes.
Everything else is probably just normal evolution in AF algorithms, sensor tech ... nothing more, but nothing less.

This time I don't expect gamechanging stuff ... probably the Ricoh GR II
Ricoh has a patents for all of the features you mention. switchable mirror. OVF with overlay/projection.

...they put the 645Z sensor in a Q body...
Yes, and this became possible only after the recent discovery that you can reduce the size of anything by simply making it smaller.

Why do I have the distinct feeling that I am going to be completely underwhelmed by this announcement?

What about a cold fusion powered flash unit with P_TTL ? It would be great for landscape. Being able to fill flash a mountain a few miles away would be a game changer for sure!

They are introducing the new- Pentax Pay. All you have to do is tap your camera on the cash register at your local retailer. Or, you can use the new Pentax watch. It takes pics, keeps your appointments, lets you browse Pentax forums, and of course, uses Pentax Pay. I'm psych'ed!!!!!!!


Forgot to say the new Pentax products will be called pPay & pWatch.

Pay per use camera linked via Pentax Wifi, 4G and GPS, so it is always fair for the customer and Pentax.

The photographer now has the incentive to shoot/frame every shot carefully since it costs $ per shot.
Not often do we get access to a technology that has the potential to change how photographers work.
A technology that enables photographers to create images like never before, only limited by their imagination.
This is about sharpness, resolution, speed, fidelity, and so much more. It's a game changer.

Camera phones are where it's at.
Hence my bets are on a heavy duty selfie-stick ...
