Being a simple soul of limited means, I only upgrade cameras each 3 or 4 iterations and don't change between systems. This has the wonderfully satisfying result that every camera I buy is significantly better than the one it replaces, and keeps me happy with it for a long time

So, I'm not in the market for any upgrades (I am still happy with my K-3 and K-1 - a great combo of contrasting capabilities) but I'm really hoping that RI/Pentax get a considerable boost in recognition and respect from whatever they produce - I've been with Pentax too long not to want to see a renaissance

That statement seems to be something very interesting, if it's not an artefact of Google translate

So pretty much the only stuff left to upgrade significantly gets targeted, excellent. Hopefully the apsc world also gets the AF upgrades.

I dont know if I want to apply the fk equivalent to mk 2 though

I'm not at all sure if the source is to be believed, but that statement seems to suggest there is an upgrade path for existing K-1 bodies?

Tic Tac is the name of a future Android version "T" which is what runs on the new K-1 Mark II, as it also doubles as a smart phone.

Hope not, since we're only at Android O at the moment. Android T is still a few years away. I'm sure most here would prefer not to have to wait that long...

At least, could you blink twice if some of that exciting stuff will be shown at CP+?
(If it's something else besides the D FA* 50mm f/1.4, of course)

[...] focusing, specifically a chip that locks onto an eye making wide-open portraitures and headshots easier. [...]
Even better: Ricoh/Pentax runs a deal with every optician in the world to shoot a tiny, tiny chip into the customer's eye, so small that it doen't disturb your vision. That chip contains a small GPS unit, your personal data and a receiver/transmitter that communicates with the K-1 II's focusing system, so that the camera gives you a list of people present within a radius that you dial in, you pick the one you want to focus on, and the camera focuses bang onto the chip in the person's eye, and holds it.

We can expect this AF Algo improvement to be in the next K1 firmware.

Nice. But is this a leak, or a wish list?
