I agree but if the market goes there, Ricoh will too, whatever they may think about it.
Ricoh will

My guess is that if it is an ILC mirrorless with a new lens mount, aps-c or not, that Pentax will release a K-adapter for it and probably a KAF4 compatible mount.

Not surprised at all.
Nice to see Ricoh accelerating. Just hope they won't lose focus.

Right now I'm imagining an itty bitty M43/Mirrorless camera with an adapter, 1.7x teleconverter and the DFA 150-450.

This lens gets adapted to Qs, so itll get onto a mirrorless aspc/m43/....IF there is such a thing to happen? ? ?

I see the Q line going away, the APS-C line of lenses is pretty good so it could ride for a few years before needing any real updates (except maybe updating the DA* SDM motors to DC), The 645 and K1 need more lenses to truly compete. To come out with yet another lens mount at this point would hurt things and slow progress on the 645 and K1 lens line-up. Maybe we will see another attempt at a K-01 type camera (think Sony A77 or A99 line except truly mirrorless) with EVF using the K70 sensor and AF but with retro styling? Either that or they continue with the Q line but add an EVF and go more retro look, but ehhhhhh no. But another lens mount at this point I think would be a mistake with the new FF needing lenses...unless Ricoh is really opening up the money for the R&D. Then by all means.

Or you know what would be interesting? Samsung is pretty much done with the NX cameras, Ricoh could strike a deal for the NX mount technology and maybe even a few of the lens designs, then design a camera around that mount. The research has already been done so it would make it fairly easy to get into. Just put the 24mp sensor from the k70 behind it and build a compelling body, who knows....Samsung might want too much money for it though.

Its a waste of great tech(the Nikon rumour was BS).


Pentax NX would be great, all that would be needed is an AF adapter for K mounts.Mind you the NX lenses are top performers but not a great range.


Wouldn't need the K70 sensor either, the 28mp sensor of NX1/500 is exceptional.

Pentax/Samsung have had prior business ventures....some Pentax DSLRs used Samsung sensors and electronics and Samsung sold rebranded versions Pentax DSLRs and lenses. The NX line even had a Samsung made K-Mount adapter. Not saying you are wrong about the cultural stuff, but the two companies do have a past.

I was thinking for the sake of saving money the NX mount alone with the addition of one of Pentaxes already great sensors would make sense. No doubt I've heard good things about the Samsung sensor though, its too bad Samsung didn't have success with the NX line.
