Is Pentax hinting they are going with a hybrid viewfinder? KPs, outdated X-5 and the other outdated mirrorless cameras seen in one pic?

I thought pixel shift is usable only for product photography in a controlled environment...............

They missed the hip mark with that glowing jellyfish, sorry :)

I think they should keep the KP line, make it even cooler (like the KP-J but get rid of the stupid coffin :D), bring in new WR and quiet lenses, bring in the hybrid EVF or a whole new funky interchangeable viewfinder system a-la LX (but still some hybrid innovation) - people will go bonkers :)

It just occurred to me that when Pentax supposedly upgrades the FA ltds, the only new thing could be HD coating and removable hoods :)

I think people around me and online are returning to point and shоot film cameras at the moment. I wouldn't be surprised if Fujifilm announces a film camera soon or sometime down the line (new Acros etc.).

How can it be the same sensor though? One is X-trans and Pentax uses Bayer.

FA43 on the X-T20. I had to crop it tiny bit to make the most of the composition. RNI+the agfacolor 40s. I miss the 43 on a crop sensor :/ Manual focusing on Fuji's EVF is a pleasure, Pentax better get out the hybrid stuff.

So the AF points will be between 153 (99 cross type) and 65 (All cross type, center double-cross) - cool, thanks for confirming.

Quite so. I often think that members here fail to understand that there are always new generations of young people who will buy a brand new system in their life one day. They are not a bunch of retirees who claim to have been shooting Pentax since the 70s and there's "no need to upgrade, you see". So what will Pentax offer to the newcomers if it doesn't bring out cameras and their old ones are discontinued?

Why do you think there are always new TVs and vacuum cleaners in production? It's not like I need a new TV every 6 months, but there are young people, settling in life who need a new TV for their house or apartment and a vacuum cleaner as well :)

I would say, don't sell the K-1 - keep it. If you want to get rid of K mount lenses - get rid of the ones with no value or you don't use and keep the one(s) you love. Then, invest/spend money in the other system. Sometime down the line, you'd want to shoot with the K-1 for fun again and it will be rewarding :)

My thought exactly :)

I think there's a confusion - it's been discussed it's running a version of embedded Linux, which is not Android, of course. Is the GRIII linux based!? - PentaxForums.com

Yes, that's another problem. For instance, I tried DXO's pro filmpack before and they seem to be too many :).

My issue with the RNI ones is that their Lightroom CC presets are just 10 at the moment and I am kind of getting used to the CC workflow. They cost the same price as the Lite version for Lightroom Classic which is like 40+? It doesn't add up, unless they haven't updated their website properly recently.

Thank you! Indeed it seems to be a great match. I went for the Polaroid 600 one. Slightly modified the temperature and bumped the 'texture' up a bit, which is the new feature in Lightroom after their last update. I have the RNI demo version for now - a set of 4 presets, as I'm still working on convincing myself that buying the full package will be worth it. In the meantime I am saving the money, hehe. But it feels OK that their narrative is "we are a bunch of pros developing this and we're focused on quality" and you don't just slap a gimmicky filter on top of your image - maybe the limiteds bring out the best of the presets too :)
