I’ll believe it when I see it. If Ricoh engineers can do this, they can do anything!

I was curious about the subject Ian raised, and this is what I found on the web:

Fundamentals of Image Sensor Performance

Figure 2.2 in section 1.4 seems to be the structure Ian was referring to. Second stage Vout voltage level
will vary with the voltage level of Vphoto of the photodiode, hence the term "source follower".

I assume you are joking? Obviously pixel shift cannot be applied to subjects that has any kind of movement.

When I say fast I meant fast focusing. None of your lenses in Pentax mount have fast focusing motor
designed for action. If you want fast focusing, you also need to invest in lenses with fast focusing motors.

How do you compare AF between XT-2 and K3ii? You do not have any fast focusing lens in the Pentax mount.

A7 II is 24 MP, has been out in the market for a while for $1100, but it's not comparable to K-1 which is 36 MP.

I'm guessing with more processing power from CPU, they can improve the motion compensation aspect of pixel shift.

To keep its existing compact size and lens design for same price segment, easiest would be to use the sensor in KP for new GR.

If they were to design FF version of GR, the size and cost would increase and make it less desirable to some people.

Assuming the 500mm lens is SMC and in good condition both cosmetically and optically, it could fetch $350 USD. That was the price I sold mine for few years ago.

I'm not at all sure if the source is to be believed, but that statement seems to suggest there is an upgrade path for existing K-1 bodies?

Google translate:

K - 1 mk 2,
Buffer enhancement (hardware
Continuous speed enhancement (hardware
AF area expansion (hardware
AF Algo Improvement (Software
Come on.
Existing K - 1 users can apply to fk equivalent to mk 2, and furthermore they can charge to contents equivalent to mk 2 with pay (100,000 yen, family club member 90,000 yen).

You better not switch to Canon, Sony, Fuji, Olympus or Nikon. Their product releases are all more frequent than that of Pentax.

Kp is less than $900 USD in the U.S. now, so I imagine an APSC flagship at $1400 is still possible for Pentax.

Full-Frame is where there is profit to be made in camera bodies and lenses. I think it's reasonable Ricoh continue to pursue this higher margin business since their market share is so small anyway.

I would agree great values can be found in the used market for all brands. I got myself an A7R in “fair” condition for “cheap” because I could not justify paying more than $800 for a camera body, but I really want the resolution the 36 mp sensor provides.
Now I have a FF body for my Pentax lenses, using manual focus only for landscapes and portraiture. It has no IBIS, PS, astrotracer, GPS, but it’ll do for now.

I was looking for a system with good video autofocus at low cost, seems like Sony A6xx series is good. The A5100 would be my choice due to its touch screen at lowest budget.

I hope for a travel friendly, compact sized K-mount 36 MP FF camera from Ricoh/Pentax priced at $1500.
K-1 is great as an all purpose camera, but people that like to travel light with primes would love a lighter, more
compact body.
