But according to Reed response, we do know they aren't the same sensor.
Which just proves the point made earlier 'just the same sensor and slap the accelerator on it' or somethink alike.
K3 sensor just isn't used anymore. probably not on sale. SO no, an hypothetical K3-III being a K3-II woth accelerator is NOT possible.



Absolutely



Clearly and the other thread being now closed just points in the same direction.
Unfortunately some FUD spreaders aren't 'closed' themselves. Might be of help here.

I'm not convinced at all Hoya has anything to do in part of this deal.
Kenko-Tokina AFAICT, is privately owned by some owners of Hoya but there's no direct link between the companies.

If XT3 sensor is indeed from Samsung, this is encouraging.
Means Samsung is in the same ballpark performance wise as Sony.

Wild rumour: Samsung to provide APS-C sensors to Ricoh Imaging (and Fujifilm)

So long ago I really can't say.
This does not concern their last one (was it NX1 ?) as I really didn't Pauly attention to that one.

Anyway, as long as RI pays attention to rendering quality, that's fine.

Sensors produced by Samsung and used in NX cams (IMO !!) tended to produce rather soft pics and I really didn't like the output at all.
The question is: was the sensor the culprit or the ISP or simply Samsung choices on processing ?
Just hoping RI keeps its usual choices on rendering.

And it needs a dedicated controller license payoff.

Frankly, I don't see a single argument for it, in current Ricoh-Pentax situation and market.

It's not as if the D7500 wasn't any downgrade either. Talk about a crippled ca, rather.

It is completely obvious.
For years people here moaned for a small camera which would go very well with Limiteds.
Ricoh did.
And people now moan 'cos it ain't the flagship they wanted.

Well, you can't please everyone.

Making it usable with older cams?
Which is way more important with APS cameras (KAF4 for FF is very different)

'Modules' references, IMO to a lot of possibilities BUT camera sensor only (phones, automotive, industrial etc).

Pentax never designed their sensors.
K20D, K-7 sensors were done in collaboration with Samsung but clearly, Samsung made the sensors with input / specs from Pentax.

Pretty much the same as Nikon-Sony.

Because, don't you know, the whole market moves to mirrorless. So they have to. Otherwise they'll look like old school vintage thing.
They they go at it. But not too much, mind you: would be sooooo unfortunate to kill the current income (DSLRs).

During this time, Ricohs move slowly into more DSLRs. Good. May they rush to MILC. Good idea :)
If Ricoh goes MILC, I expect a GR/GX derivate. Not a competition to (whatever current brand).
