Hello everyone, Pentax K-5 & K-70 owner. I'm a bit of a camera nerd I've tried most of the other brands, I also own a Lumix GH5 and Sony RX100. My dream release would be a follow up to the Pentax MX-1 upgraded to a 1 inch sensor, but that will probably stay in my dreams. I love playing around with vintage lenses too, one of my favorite lens old or new is the Pentax 135mm f3.5. Currently based in Ireland but soon to be based in the Philippines.

Welcome to Pentax Forums from Australia.

The K-5 is a great little camera, in my experience, and the K70 seems to improve on it in many ways. I can’t see there being another P&S bearing the Pentax name, though. Perhaps the successor to the MX-1 will be a Ricoh camera. They’ve had good publicity (and presumably sales) with the GXiii, so it’s possible there’ll be another follow-up there.

A friend owns one but I couldn't justify the price, I was even tempted by the GR II but I love the style of the MX-1, I'm a sucker for vintage style build quality.
