Pentax should put out a survey

I think Pentax should put out a survey, and a statement pretty much saying: "OK, we're going to start working on a new camera, and we would like you to fill out this survey to tell us what you want improved, what you want added on or taken off, and what new ideas for lenses you want us to update and what new lenses to add"

Forum member RonHendricks recently conducted a survey and forwarded it to Pentax:

Thanks Adam for mentioning. The lenssurvey can still have some input:

It never hurts to have more people involved.


On camera, sensorsize and specs it is very different to make up a good survey. I did gave it a thought, but didn't came up with a good way to stream interest of different users.

There is a "Dear Pentax" thread with those answers, which I'm sure they read.

That will always be the question. I give them the benefit of the doubt. One problem is that with limited funds (and hence man power) one can probably not design 10 new lenses in a year as well as a FF camera as well as a new flash as well as ...

If you really want to know, buy a share

It might be nice to see a roadmap; there was one long ago for the lenses.

They don't have to put out a whole bunch of new stuff all at once, just a new lens here and there will do until' they have more money & man power to put something big out like a FF camera, if they decide to put one out. As far as lenses go I'd like to see them put out a 24-75 f2.8
