Size doesn't always matter...

Realism, accuracy and "light neutrality" appearance of analogic SLR vision through a viewfinder cannot be replaced by EVFs.

If you are an intensive shooter and a though finder-viewer, SLR's prism is definitely less harmfull for your vision.

Also, as wildphotographers are concerned, the advantage of a "powerless" vision making thus indefinite observation through the OVF possible, has "no price" in comparison to power-assisted, thus power-depleting EVFs.

Pentax Meeting on Nov 27: Q&A about future products (nothing very specific)

Jersey, the K-1 III will have a very high resolution (because potential future 645 is "dead-born" under 100 Mpix).
So no comparison with K-3 III's ips for example.

Many thanks JPT.

As far as i could discuss with some of my well informed contacts, the likelyhood for the next Pentax FF is K-1 III with K-3 III's ergonomic improvements but with same prism size and body is great.
And we shouldn't wait too long as from now (definitely before 2024 :D ).

An improved entry level "K-80" looks also to be still under evaluation, but is not praised to be launched soon if it has any chance : the short-term priority is to sell more K-3 III.
Pentaxists keen to support their hobby should really consider buying it if they are interested in APS-C format potential.

Agreed, mainly because the K-3 III marries old style, old lenses support and new - if not best - SLR ergonomic and technological modernity...

There's also the probable assymetrical impact of travel restrictions due to Covid-19 pandemy : impacting more the "travel kits" smaller than FF, than the "serious & heavier FF kits".

This.

The fact is Q were and WG/G/GR are mirrorless, build by the same company ;)

As regard K-mount mirrorless, all i remember is the Ricoh Management was very unhappy with the K-01 concept at the time they bought Pentax... And Mr Akahane was hired just after...
So i don't belive any more in a K-mount ML, even if this would imho be the best option (i still own two K-01 bodies).

I guess a true strategic move for Pentax - if the brand is to be perpetuated - would nevertheless result in the brand continuation, whatever that means for K-mount, and even if that doesn't comply with original statements made in 2011.
Pentax-K could be "completed" or even "replaced" by Pentax-L, the more if a good adapter is issued.

Yes, i imagine some "shared" expertise structure, that is working for both companies and is attached to one.

v .0x firmware versions are pretty minor ones.

K-S1 is quite a good camera with interesting ergonomics, my daughter still uses the one i offered her 6 years ago. :)


Btw, we are still waiting for Theta / SLR image fusion functionnality...
