For me it would have to be something attainable. All new cameras are beyond my means but at least the KP is in realistic touching distance. A sleek and slim as possible K3iii gets my vote, that or a top notch mirror less and free adapter for k mount

A K-1 with a vintage Pentax look
now that's something different completely

It's funny, incidentally, how people blame the size on DSLRs on the mirror, whereas my LX, for example, is only about 6 cm deep - there are many factors at work in a digital camera, of which te mirror is just one.

I'd love to see a digital version of one of the classic Pentaxes - but I suspect the KPis as close as we're going to get.

I would love to see a concept camera from Pentax! I mean like the concept cars that are presented in major exhibitions from most manufacturers...

If money were not a factor and as a demonstration of Ricoh-Pentax innovation and technology this is a prototype with the most advanced features and design that we can develop-combine in a camera!

Now that would be something beautiful and would answer many Pentaxians(?) questions and doubts!

Agreed - that would be interesting, and good for traffic - as long as the patents were sorted out first and it didn't give those with deeper pockets ideas

Yes, you're right! Of course, in a DSLR you have the sensor and it's carrier frame, the motherboard and the screen assembly, all stacked. That's not helping the thickness. All we have in a regular SLR is the film carrier. So, what if they stacked the motherboard where the film used to be. That could help with the thickness. And a more old-fashioned shape.

A kp mkii that's a D500 competitor along with DCI 4K video recording, would be awesome. + excellent battery life!

Lx was film and this is digital. So there's lots of stuff inside the camera.

I somehow don't think that would come under the KP form factor - but who knows?

I think if they make it, it would be awesome! No doubt it would be a little bit bigger! Also a top display like XH-1 and two tier dials!

I think PENTAX would release new lenses for FF camera and both. And K1 Mark II, KP or new cameras are on big sale and with coupon. At least in my country, the policy of the Kp is that the D-BG7 battery grip is a gift until the end of Sep., But I hope they can release KP Mark II... such as improving shutter speed, buffer, and focusing ability. And Kp owners can upgrade to Kp Mark II with little money...

That's brilliant! I would love to see it too! A 3000$ camera from Pentax, that'll blow the lids other manufacturers!
