So should we wait for MX-2 announcement in near future?

Another ILC would kill the Q and need a new lens mount/new lenses (new lens production tooling) and I'd be surprised if PR enter the M4/3 market which is dominated by Pana/Oly

Isn't that the Q7, at least with a rigid screen?

K-mount mirrorless is the K-01. The MX-1 body is too small and not deep enough for K-mount.

yea I know. but one can hope.


Maybe a K-01 but redesigned with optional or integrated EVF in a less of a visual design study would be nice. I do enjoy the look of the original, but didn't find it comfortable.

When I saw the title of this thread and the section where it is, I was hoping for news or at least a rumour

Yes, it's a two handed job - but that's how it was promoted as.

Does it make sense to make a MX-2 or is would it be better to expand the GR line?

Move the lugs and add some sort of manual control to the lens barrel, too, please. Zoom, preferably, but I'd take focus. Thanks a bunch. ;-)

Great photo!


Here's my simple (and vain) suggestion in addition to the others... a better lens cap.
