Lens mount/sensor module for smartphone. Is the logical evolution of the GXR.

Working from the experience of the Ricoh GXR (that since I have bougth it I have found is a great camera not at all awkward as it seemed to me before), creating a modular mirrorless system with swappable sensors and swappable camera mounts could create something really new to the market. A single camera where you can mount Q, K, 645 lenses, micro 4/3, leica M... 1, 7" sensor, APs-C, full frame, 33x44...

When Canon and Nikon openly talk about how to enter the "serious" mirrorless market, how can we imagine Ricoh investing in lenses that could be obsolete in just a few years? For me, we are in the same limbo Sony was between the failure of the Alpha 900 and the success of their mirrorless line.

Looking at the launch price of the D500, I think that Pentax simply doesn't have a market for a camera of that price, just like it wouldn't for a full frame camera priced like a Canon 1Dx. I'm not saying that there wouldn't be any buyer for a 1800 € Pentax D500 like camera, in fact I know some, simply that there wouldn't be enough.

Now I am too a prowd owner of this forgotten camera. It's really a little jewel. For now I have the S10 sensor but the M mount is on it's way to my home, along a M-PK adapter and, hopefully, thy will be followed by some M native lenses.

This is the first picture I did, this morning.

Well, considering how deceptive the blurred bars in the roadmap were, regarding the actual focal lenght of the final product, it could be also a 100-300/2,8, or a 200-400/4.

But I, too, guess it's a 70-300/5,6.

Watt about the hinted DFA*24-105/4 surfaced in the talks a few weeks ago? Why not in the new roadmap? Has it ben left out on purpose, or simply it was a false rumor?

Another 50? Is the DA50/1,8 too slow? It's 2/3 of a single stop from 1,4.

It pulled their sales by Nikon and Canon cameras customers. Are you sure there are many Pentaxians that want to mount these huge beasts on the most compact DSRLs on the market?

I guess this lens means that the three primes in the roadmap are not the rebadge of the three /1,8 Tamrons.

Looking at this picture I wonder if it would be possible in the next iteration of the camera to put the shutter button at the centre of the front dial, leaving space for a upper little LCD, like the K-1 one.

Seven months before the successor of the K3II?

When people got their FF, it ended. If Pentax would have released a 16 or 24 Mp FF, or a 3000 camera, it wouldn't have. But Ricoh nailed perfectly what the FF crowd wanted.

The top APS-C camera crowd wants top AF, big burst and buffer, and until they get that, it will not end.

Compact cameras are disappearing fast, replaced by smartphones, and Q, sensor wise, was nothing more than a compact camera.

I went that path, and as a K-5 owner it was a step up even for crop shot (buffer is double the K-5 one).

But many Pentaxian I know are not interested in full frame, and just want a K-3 with faster AF for BIF/motorsport.

They were patented by Pentax and produced by Pentax in its Vietnamese factory. Tokina build its own, fo Nikon and Canon, in Japan, by the same Pentax patents. And it's the same for the 35 macro: The reverse is true for the 12-24. But in any case Tokina never built any DA lens for Pentax, only exchange of patents

When Pentax replaced Z1P, it did with MZ-5. It took many years to have the MZ-S, and awesome as it was, it didn't fully replace all the specs of the Z1-P. It seems to me that we are seeing the same. Just like then, to have something superior you have to switch frame format.

Not being a priority doesn't mean it should be forgotten and not improved.

For Pentax, usually, lesser format cameras have been the farm to test technology for bigger format ones, so there should be something that could find its way to new FF and 645 DSRLs...

I guess it should have something that could appeal to K-1 owners... good video specs could be one, and a very fast burst another.
