Being That The LX....

only had a max of 5 FPS, I think it's safe to say that there will never be a body to satisfy sport photographers. It'll be cool if 8-10 FPS can be done on crop mode(preferably 10).

Why would Ricoh waste any effort in sport photography at all? Canikon owns that segment and it is a dying segment anyway.

The K3/II pretty much fits the bill on that end. Even thought there's Nikon's D500, to me it's WAAAAAAAAAAAY overpriced (and a few years to late).

Lol. Agree.

The only one pro photography that is not dying is the one that uses telephoto lenses. Since you cant do this pictures with an Iphone.

I believe that there will be more FF cameras in the future. This is just the begining.
