Make mine with retro-look/feel in the form of a Pentax MX, let's call it: MX-D.

With APS-C, OVF, PASM, ISO, EV, 1/6000 to Bulb and no other fluffy in-body software. Just a no non-sense camera. I live for the day.

I must like the underdog too. I choose Pentax for the colors, handling and features (any old glass fit without an adapter, in-body SR, etc.). I also prefer Mazda, even though Toyota (Canon) and Honda (Nikon) have a higher market share, who cares? Handling in a Mazda 3 or 5 is sporty; Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic, not so much.
Mazda: built for drivers.
Pentax: built for photographers :-D

An OVF positioned for left-eyed people with pointy noses!

Camera bodies I've been very happy with both in design and functionality. I've had the K100DS, K200D, K-x and now the K-r. The one thing I still miss since the K200D is the top LCD screen.

Prime lenses I'd really like to see in Limited style: 12mm f/4 and 135mm f/1.8.

Also, and this is nit-picking but why not make the whole line weather sealed now? Forget the K-500 and K-r and 18-55 and 50-200 non-WR. Save cost and keep the 18-55 and 50-200WR to match up with the K-50, etc.

Pentax F 50mm f/1.7 - samples

I did the usual walk in a nearby park to get a few sample photos from my newly acquired Pentax F 50mm f/1.7. I like the results even though the subjects aren't the greatest. Color is very accurate, sharp wide open and the bokeh is just fine by me.

We are going on a long-weekend trip tomorrow until Monday and I'm traveling very light. This will be my only lens and it will get tested under many conditions ;-)

No PP except my typical USM treatment. All at f/1.7 except the 3rd photo which is f/2.4
