If possible at all, Pentax should really put a new 24mp BSI sensor in the APS-C top model that they are now going to develop. Color depth and color detail is really a step ahead with the BSI sensor i.m.o.
The Sony A7RII with the Zeiss Loxia lenses keeps amazing me with its rich and deep colors. 50 shades of green? No problem with this sensor.
Also high iso benefits. Pair this Sony BSI sensor with Pentax imaging pipeline (accelerator unit), and it should produce stunning IQ.
Put a 50 point new SAFX 13 in, and they could sell quite a few.
