I will buy either a FF version of K-5 with IS/improved AF/Flash and smallest in class size

or a super APS-C pro camera. Similar to the 1D series but 1.5 crop. (Great AF, FPS, improved flash and smallest in class size)

or a DSLR modular Sensor mount, assuming pentax is confident that their body is so good and over specced that it can last at least 3 generation worth of usage. imagine upgrading from k-5 to k-3 to k-1 by changing only the sensor at 500 bucks per upgrade


I believe there an upgrade path for everyone . just give us more choice!

any other problem with other lens?


My K-5 had issues with all my FA limited and i had sent it in for calibration. Only discover this recently, used to think it was user error for the softness and wide open until i did a simple battery test. even +10 adjustment could not compensate so had to send it in for calibration, most likely the body needs to be calibrated.

Still awaiting the camera back from japan. Now playing with NEX 5N adapting my pentax lens

I was just wondering,

With the demised of the Canon 1D line, there could be a existing market for pros who wanted reach and uncrippled functionality. Not all pros like a FF FOV

Will a pro-grade APS-C be better than an first foray into FF which is likely to lag behind the other FF models?

Pro-grade like a "Super model" of the existing flag ship APS-C, this means Pentax will set its sight on being the best of APS-C dslR, better than whatever nikon, canon and sony can throw with it.

Selling points will be:

Small but great Ergo,
Fast FPS (k-5 was already getting there)
Best in class AF (they got to beat the 7D on this)
Tracking in AF
WR
Twin SD card
SR
Uncrippled aperture support


Supporting functions which need to be stepped up:
Long Lens offering
Flash system
Lens to be all WR based

This could be a flagship with the normal non-super for the enthusiatics market similar to what K-5 is already doing

i am more than willing to purchase a FF pentax as long as,

it is smaller than the competition, has SR, WR and quality of no less than the existing k-5
