16-35/4 would be a great addition to the full frame lineup, something similar to DA* 11-18/2.8

If the rumours stating that they have exchanged patents with Olympus are true (their SR system for video codecs), we should receive a massive overhaul of K-3 III's video capabilities (for which I have my fingers crossed).

Are they going to expand K-3 III capabilities via firmware upgrade? If so it seems their strategy was to release it being 'as good as it is' and then work on the features. Also, this approach indicates that the body is far more capable (has future-proof tech) of what it represents now.

In my opinion they hurt their sales a lot by not implementing a tilt screen in the K-3 III. As I'm a real estate photographer I would love to purchase a body with a decent 4k, without the crop and with a tilt screen. Currently I own K-3 (gen 1) and despite that the body delivers what I want every time I consider an upgrade. Is K-3 III for me? Perhaps, the price is not an issue, but the overall bag rather is.

Well, I thought that they will increase bitrate in video. 56Mbps in Z1 is the same value as in Theta V. Too bad. But the RAW capability is very welcome.

This price is affordable, good that (perhaps) Ricoh won't charge much for revamped glass.

Because it was released in 1990, therefore it must be under development in late 80' ;)

I think I have been called to reply to this. Probably You haven't photographed any situation, when silent AF is needed, for example a wedding, theathre and cetera. Of course, You can have any screw drive lens You want but You don't change the fact that is ancient tech in terms of modern technology.

It is not negativity - it's concern. I will just point out that we already have revamped 35 mm glass and it is HD Pentax-D FA 645 35/3.5 AL [IF] for medium format. And yes - it is screw driven.

The thing that many of folks here don't get is that: if Ricoh could manage to deliver very decent 1080p video (Canon-quality), there will be an increased demand for a old lenses like 50/2 M, Takumars and so on. Those babies are doing great during video on Sony's so why not is it on a proper camera, from the same brand as they had been made of?

Very strange rumor has been posted na photorumors.com, stating that Russian company Zenit is working with Ricoh on K-1 rebadged DSLR camera (similar strategy to announced lately Zenit M, which was a Leica's M240).

I wonder on what level this sort of interview has been accepted by the HQ, and (the most important question) do local Ricoh / Pentax managers know what is going on in the Japan in terms of product development.

Photokina 2018 Q&A - What would you ask Ricoh?
Posted By x4rd

1) Do they changed the view on video mode in recent time? Many manufacturers implement more or less 4k video mode with decent bitrate and fps - what is Pentax approach to this matter?
2) Do they work with another (than Sony) sensor manufacturer to leap forward in terms of image quality and specs?
3) In terms of AF capabilities in Pentax cameras - are they focusing on one aspect during development (like - AF speed, or more focus points, or AF during video) - could they hint what it is?
4) Lens development in recent years is very slow, is this a matter to improve in the future?
5) Pentax seems to implement the premium brand strategy. Meanwhile, there are lots of budget lenses like DAs 35 and 50 with a old screw drive motor build-in. Are they planning to improve and refresh their offering, releasing the DC versions of such lenses?
