New K-New? Who Knew?

Not sure if there is any teeth to this one, but over on 'that other site'...

A second new dslr? Improved video functions?

Ricoh is rumored to be working on another Pentax APS-C DSLR camera - Pentax Rumors

Hi Stephen,

If the news will be confirmed, there will be more to wait for because the matter becomes more complicated, don't you think?

Ciao Mario

A new KP (or similar) is entirely possible. After all, the hardware guys probably have nothing left to do on the k-new.

Ricoh has said nothing about it.
At this point I will ignore any rumor without some kind of 'support' from them.

Perhaps a good idea, since their supposed source apparently doesn't know about that thing

Joking aside, I'm sure Ricoh Imaging is working on more stuff than their past years record would indicate.

There is no press office (Ricoh) that affirms or denies such news,

I would be very surprised if this was a new reflex camera, and why not a mirrorless one? (we know how they think in Pentax house about it)

A K-mount mirrorless camera? Hmm... It reminds me of something but I can't exactly remember what.

A crowd with pitchforks and torches, with an irrational hate towards the color yellow? My memory is vague...

Something about tar and feathers too...

Baby blue had a warmer reception than yellow IIRC. Something to do with protective instinct I presume.

Based on a tip?

Slow month for content at PR?

My vote is digital version of the Ricoh Mirai. Sure to be a winner.

If Pentax is working on other stuff, I would bet that everything is "FF".

They have to deliver K-new before I will believe anything about them doing another camera.

Perhaps to be paired with a new DA-C series of video-centric lenses with in-camera support for T-stops and both aperture and focus pull?

Paired with rebadged Irix Cine lenses (11mm T/4.3 - 15mm T/2.6 - 45mm T/1.5 - 150 mm T/3.0 Macro 1:1).
