This could be connected to the rumored Canon EOS-M5 somehow.
Canon EOS M5 was officially announced last Thursday.

Canon M5 is no rumour.Available on preorder $979.Nice autofocus but with the 18-150 $1500 its overpriced.

I bet it would come true. Ricoh had never released a retro camera yet and judging from a league of old photogs who have started from a K1000 it should be a success. If its going to be a FF, it will be hard decision between this and a K1 for me.

Rotfl. Not laughing at you at all: just that 'fairytail' is, IMO a very nice spelling mistake

If OSV were still around, he would explain that the primary value of MILC is not size, the real advantage is that EVF gives a much better view of what the actual image will be (*). In addition, an MILC should be simpler construction, and if they were to put a leaf shutter in the lens, it will be much quieter.


(*) A couple of weeks ago, I was taking a picture in a fairly dark area, and I had to switch my K-30 to LV in order to see well enough to frame the picture. Hand-holding the camera while using the LCD was awkward - an EVF would have been much much better.
Nope. Different, valuable and very useful but no way better (yet?!). Please, on this subject could we all agree not to throw such statement without an 'IMO' or something? Thanks.

Here is an interesting article about lens sizes, in particular lenses specifically designed for Sony's mirrorless cameras...
Well, there's at least one very stupid comment about Pentax mount diameter and SR.

The problem is what that these users want is not possible on a digital camera. Unless it going to be a very crippled niche product (without AF, only supporting lenses with aperture ring...)

There are just too many functions that has come since K1000 and they have to be accessed from the camera somehow.
Nikon showed how difficult this is when they released Df, which kind of got a retro interface bolted on top of a standard DSLR, so it got more controls than about any other DSLR.

And iwith a retro interface on a mirrorless camera could make it difficult to fit all controls on the body.
IMO it would be much smarter if they go the other way instead, and design a camera with "futuristic" user interface. More like Leica SL or Hasselblad X1D.
That makes it much easier to design a user interface that is easier to handle with fewer controls. Leica SL and Hasselblad X1D has 15-20 controls on the body, while Nikon Df has 40.

I hope Ricoh is smarter than trying to jump on the retro bandwagon.

It would be nice to see something like the super ME with the battery grip similar to the motor drive.

Who has been feeding these fantasies to the photo rumors guy? Come on, just admit it. Pentax is having enough trouble bringing out new lenses for the K-mount. They don't need a new mirrorless.

a new mirrorless line FF and APS-C using a larger version of the Q-mount. Ricoh must really have opened up the money faucet.

One day or another, Ricoh will have to take the plunge. The mirrorless camera market represents one third of the DSLR market globally and one half of it in Japan -we know Ricoh are pretty much Japan-centric.

Among the SLR manufacturers or former manufacturers, Canon, Fuji, Hasselblad, Leica, Olympus, Panasonic, the late Samsung, Sigma and Sony all propose or proposed mirrorless cameras with a sensor at least equal to 4/3". Only Phase One have no mirrorless offer at all, only Nikon and Ricoh have no mirrorless with a 4/3" sensor or bigger and only Ricoh have no mirrorless with a 2/3" sensor or bigger.
