Wireless tethering to a tablet.... the landscape photographers dream. Especially once Samyang comes out with a workable tilt shift for k-mount.

Tethering is necessary for astrophotography fine focusing. and remote control. Pentax cameras are good cameras for night sky pictures, tethering will make them
a choice camera for amateur astronomy. Add wireless they could become the preferred camera.

live tethering w/ Android/iOS apps is really what people are used to now.

And please use USB 3.0 instead of glacially slow USB 2.0....wifi (even 802.11ac w/ dual streams) is too slow. 802.11ac w/ 4-8 streams is probably fast enough but would be a battery suck and throw off so much noise inside the body, it'd mess up the DR...

Tethering is nice to have and useful, but other things are needed first.

Tethering would be great. The Eye-Fi cards can add a lot of this "missing" stuff, obviously can't fire the shutter but it's nice to have a better "instant" review. The retina iPad really shows you a LOT compared to the little on camera screen.
