So no New Medium Format either? What a bummer! I was expecting a lot. Anyways they could have cashed in on their 100 year birthday! I guess new APS-C will do. Much like the KP.
These are products that will eventually come out no matter what IMO.

If they end up launching something more than a special edition of a current body for the anniversary, it could be a respin or refresh of an iconic product, such as a Limited lense, a classic body, or perhaps even something from the digital era.

Or they could release a new camera that looks like a spotmatic!

If it could be digital in that form factor, I'd be down!

It would have been amazing, if we got any news!

Well in that form factor it has to be either mirrorless or a compact APS-C. No way they're making an FF DSLR that tiny!

Digital back for film SLRs, of course.

Or new non-AF lenses.
Or a K-1 that takes screw mount lenses.
Or maybe a 42mp camera with fast autofocus, slowmo video recording, DCI 4k at 30fps /50p or 60p. Top ink display like fuji X-H1. Better battery life maybe a 1000 shots/battery. And look like a Mix between spotmatic and Kp.

Hell, if the price is reasonable I would buy it!

(but if I have to be honest... an APS-C "mission-nostalgia"...body almost identical to a Pentax MX but with good video and flippy screen =
perfection for all the Hypster youtube vlogger crowd... ibis + all that heavy metal body = you don't even need electronic stabilization!)

A friend of mine has one. Very pretty, and functional. A K-1 with a vintage Pentax look, with nice milled knobs and buttons would be a beautiful thing! (Even if it looks abit like a Nikon!)
