Pentax AP-50 Style

I saw the AP 50 prototype and wondered why Pentax did not keep with its angular pentaprism style, it could look really good in a modern angular/subtle curved body.

It would also differentiate it from the more modern D-SLR 'Look' that most have, the K-30 was a slight nod towards it which I quite like with its strong angular lines. Strong brand identity too.

I gather the only issue might be the onboard flash?




AP 50th Aniv.



Compared to the original:




Just a random thought of the day.....

I think I can totally tolerate the flashless.... if possible, I want it has brass top and base plate as well, that would be a little better.

UMM... That camera looks suspiciously like a K-20D with a K-7 top plate.
The K-7 etc. designs look better to me

I would say more like the MZ series bodies for the life of me I find it hard to see any difference in looks from the K10 D & the K20 D other than the numbers
Also in my wind its the Worst of both world this camera if its made is some thing in looks only a mother could love LOL
