"if Pentax doesn't provide it, we're all good with it... Go somewhere else!
"Pentax isn't on par in AF tracking with other brands? Who need it?"
The question is "Are you willing to pay $2000 for an APS-C camera with 150 AF points?" If you are it is available from Nikon...They have some really nice long lenses too...

Nor I'm willing to pay 1499€ for a body (X-T2*) + a lot more for a set of overpriced lenses (despite being very compact and build wonderfully)
Hence I'm here interested in Pentax's APS-C line

*even if I loved it, for its characteristics, Ergonomics and style

I could have predicted that. Pentax drops a 'little surprise or two' every year.

It's like me saying: "shhhhh, you didn't hear it from me, but Pentax are developing some new cameras and lenses. I can't tell you much more because it's still very secret"

I sometimes question the vagueness of these 'insider' posts...many of them I could surmise / write from the known information

Ricoh needs to get Fuji's users. Far from constantly complaining, they're convinced their tools are the best, even going as far as saying that nobody ever needs something better*

*until Fuji launches such a product.
I have a Fuji XE-2 but I am still NOT a Fuji fan ... I prefer my K5 and K3 and only take the little one when travelling requires minimal gear.

How "little" will it be ? Like a set of filters or something that "little" ?

Yeah, indeed? My goodness, nobody knew that!

On the other hand, my auntie knows as much as that, and much more: one of those little things will be a little new camera. Wow!
And another will be a little new lens with a little lens cap! Wow, wow!

In other words ... yawn.
That crystal ball is broken, and I think 99% users know that, but they just pretend for the sake of keeping the conversation going.

I can stop saying anything if that makes you feel better?
