I think a Full Frame Mirrorless would be a waste of time though. Everyone talks about how great the Sony ones are, but they still have to have big stonking full frame lenses attached to them, which in my opinion totally reverses the advantages
isn't it the same with medium format?

Yes it is, however no one sells medium format as a compact solution to anything. Anyone buying into that system knows there's no such thing as truly compact.
But everyone harps on how Mirrorless makes "everything" smaller, when it only makes the Camera smaller. The Sensor size dictates how big the lens must be for a given focal length/fstop
A full frame mirrorless lens cannot be smaller than a full frame DSLR's lens. It's Optics 101.
And for you Trolls out there, please don't go searching for one and come back to me saying but such and such make one that's 1mm smaller

The argument of smaller camera body does the trick to get most people buying a new camera, because most of us think of cameras before thinking about the lenses. Most people buying a mirrorless FF camera will end-up with a big system anyway. The most effective way to reduce size is to use a smaller sensor (extreme case is mobile phones). So yes , I agree with you.

Please make a 100-400mm f/4 lens

Dear Pentax,
Please develop a 100-400mm f/4 lens for those who like longer lenses without the larger prices. There is the 50-300mm (which, from reviews, could be better quality ... it's not bad but ...) and the 150-450mm (which has a stiff price). A moderately priced zoom that has a reach out to 400mm would be a good seller in my opinion. Being an f/4 would make it more reasonably priced I would think.


Thanks!
Dave

This could be applied to any or all future pentax bodies. A mixture of reasonable and bonkers ideas:

RF remote trigger instead of IR.
USB-C
Internal storage (why has no camera manufacture done this?). Imagine built in 128-256gb of UFS 3.0 memory.

Already done! The Mighty LX, the perfected manual focus SLR, has such, which also lets it accomodate a hand grip.

How about accommodating a fine, old fashioned cable release? My LX and my 645n use them. Why not my K 5?

I didn't say it's something new... But they never did it on DSLRs...

Mostly those who know nothing about MILC talk about size. Those who do know about MILC talk about the advantages they get from EVF.

Please make affordable AF extension tubes. It's way past time you made a modern set of three tubes with data pins and a screw-drive mechanism.

They are durable and I don't have to worry about a focusing motor going out while on a shoot.

Image Comparison feature.

Dear Pentax please reestablish the 'Image Compare' feature in a future update for the K5IIs. This is the only reason I do not like my K5IIs as much as it deserves and I keep returning to my trusty K5.
