But a new 43/1.4 or 31/1.4 would be welcome if you ask me.
I'd love an updated FA limited with DC and WR. F1.4 is not needed I think, I'd keep the character of the lenses, but upgrade their technology.

If you can't preview the crop in the VF with perfect precision, you can't just tell LR to do it in batch.
Makes sense, except if you can frame in the center with reliability. Not easy, I agree.

Well, you're in luck because it's already here. It's been here since the K-1 was released.
I see what you mean, but it's not the same thing as a mode dial. Given Pentax's focus on customization and external controls on higher-end bodies, having the 4 way controller give access to settings (and I agree that color space isn't needed as a shortcut) is nice, and having a different dial for AF point means no risk of changing a setting because you didn't notice the absence of the AF point icon.

ISO 50 would be nice!
Lower ISO would be my first choice too. A great feature for landscape photography.

After that I'd like:
1) More focus points (with a joystick)
2) A lighter body

I hope that they start with a different name than K-x
I would add:
- power adapter for 12 vdc
- a slightly larger viewfinder
- UHS-III sd card interface (UHS-II is newest, but UHS-III better)
- eliminate some buttons use lcd instead
- lcd display control that includes night vision instead of buried in menus
- simplified menus
- perhaps a small solar panel grid to trickle charge batteries
- a hot shoe cover lock or onboard pocket

Just some ideas.

I hope they get rid of the image "accelerator" of the K-1 Mark II
Faster reading sd card slots like UHS-III would be the biggest issue for me. The K-1 really slows down when shooting bursts then writing it to the card.
I would also like to upgrade the battery to something higher capacity. Pentax still is using the DLI-90 which came out with the K-7...that means its 10 year old battery technology.
