Yeah - WR limited!

Updated 16-50 PLM

Good stuff...
And 1.05x viewfinder APS-C DSLR is also a big surprise (as large as a normal full frame).

I was expecting the new DA* 16-50/2.8, but I'm surprised at the PLM.
I've heard a lot of positivity about PLM focusing... should be good, and offset any old lingering SDM fears...

Very encouraging all round. I would have liked to hear something about the sensor and the screen on the K-new, and the improved AF. Also, no mention of the speed of the DFA 21 Limited (f/4?).

More PLM, for the new 16-50 DA*. And they said it couldn't be done.

Hate to be that guy, but I'm a little disappointed by the lack of revealed specs for the new camera. The only new info is finder magnification, its protrusion from the body, and the battery grip.

Still no definitive statement about the rear screen. No AF module specifics. Nothing about the sensor and image processing engine. Nothing about video.

It's nice to hear that it's still on track for 2020, though.

I agree. Kinda odd how they are still confident on this year for release, but canít provide more basic details.

Any ideas what that would mean?

I can't think of other Pentax bodies with that lock symbol?

On the K1 it is for Live View, so maybe there is still some kind of EVF hiding in there?

Maybe that button is quick mirror lockup and switch to EVF?

There is always hope... lol

The new APS-C camera looks kind of disappointing. There is no movable screen, and no special EVF / OVF as some previous articles hinted at. Looks like the K-P is a better choice for APS-C.

I do like the new lenses, especially the 85mm.
