It seems to me 4-5% in Japan and it's the biggest market for them...
I was using 2016 figures (Pentax was 6.8%)....down to 4.8 and sales are flat across the board for DSLRs and cameras in general....the most precipitous drop was Nikon, down to 22% from a high of nearly 40%.

I just hope Pentax holds on and continues to make cameras that are soulful, intuitive and well-made....

You can cross one off your wish list, Pentax DSLRs haven't had an antialiasing filter since around 2013 or so. Good luck on the others.

Not unreasonable to expect, at least the wifi bit. If people find a use for it, why not. I have tested that it works, then never bothered again (GR, K-1).

It would be a cool feature, but I doubt you will get that and a GPS both - at least not with a flash powerful enough to make tilting useful.

As long as it's not one of those flip-out-and-twist screens - I really don't like them! Touch screen is fine, though, as long as I can make it "untouchable"

As Larry said, that's long gone.

That's always welcome!

No, by all means, ask away!

K3II + outstanding AF + 4k 60p 10bit 420 (10bit 422 via hdmi).

Yep, Im asking for a Fujifilm Xt3!! lol!!

Then, grab it all, and put inside some little cinema camera (like sony FS5) with clean 12bit SDI output, and launch Ricoh Cine with Tokinas or Pentax Ltd with official CineMod. Lol.

Yet the K-1 cannot replace an APS-C flagship - it simply doesn't have the speed; and Ricoh Imaging said they'll do an APS-C flagship.
Possibly for their 100th anniversary. Roll out a couple of new cameras and some accessories/lenses, etc.

The K-S2 has NFC, wifi and an articulating screen....They have the technology (could speed up the wifi a bit) but Pentax/Ricoh is a fairly conservative brand and they move in evolutionary tracks....I like that approach. It keeps us core followers/users integrated to the system...plus they continue to support legacy lenses on their recent bodies...Canon, Nikon and Olympus don't do that. Just saying..

Maybe I wasnt clear enough. But yes, i know that base iso isnt influenced by the amplifier but higher range of the iso range is. Ergo - the lowest the base iso is, the lower the highest iso for the same amplifier design.
Amplifier? We gonna have the tubes vs. solid state debate too?
