For that kind of use (and others), the GR is an excellent cam.

OK, if speaking only about GRIII then:

If they didnt at least compensate for the bigger files, they are making a big mistake for sure. But we dunno that.

As for the 2GB, i'm not quite sure it is a scratch disk. It could be since they revealed very little specs. But i'm sceptic.
Anyway it is quite early to go to conclusions IMO

This is internal storage. Not the buffer.
If there is no problem on GR I, why would there be any with GR III ?

I've never felt my GR (I) to be hobbed un any way because of slow write speed to card.
Not as if the GR was made for action so I dont see the slightest problem.

I do not expect anything. Unlike many members here I do not think orientated by my wishes or frustration.
No I won't spam every thread with 'why didn't they go with my superior idea' or whetever.
It's not as if I wished for APS-H.

Pentax was right to go compact with APS DSLRs at the time, they were the only ones to do so (AFAICT).

Now ILC and smartphones are here. They're a heck of a lot more compact than any APS DSLR and K-P proves the point (missing features according to alot of members here).

IMO Pentax is right *now* to target quality and upper range with FF. APS won't go away but it won't be the main target.

Also IMO, 645 isn't neglected but it's waiting to know it it will get mirrorless treatment (but then Pentax needs new lenses right when they struggle having new lenses for FF) or not (not even talking about crop 645 or FF 645).

I would not be surprised at all in the distant future (or not so distant?) to have a lineup looking like:
* APS : ILC GR-like or Leica-like ---> "quality oriented"
(+ maybe a DSLR body more speed/sport oriented but using mainly legacy and current modern DFA lenses)
* FF: DSLRs
* 645: ILC

Well, they sit on 645 lenses inventory and lenses DO make money.
The camera is just the tool to trigger the lens sales.

The DA*200 optical design is old and should be replaced.
The DA*300 though was a redesign (and f/4 instead of f/4.5 previously) and could be carried on.

No, basically many here wants RI to say something like 'we will produce a worthy successor to K3-II to be presented at CP+".
And that would be, IMO, stupid.

IMO they said as much as they could without unveiling too much. I understand why some want some news but asking more would be counterproductive.

The 645FF image is not 60*45mm. The fim is, the real image produced is 56 mm 41.5 mm (in Pentax 645 film cams case). Not a lot less but not 60*45 either.

If they want FF to become a bigger part of their portfolio of products, they need more FF cams (regardless of what I feel about it).
They also need proper APS. Defining proper (not K70-like) is the whole exercise. KP-like ? K3-like ?

Nikon did bring high end APS in the end and... D850 sold way better it seems. Pentax isn't a lot a about high speed, sport etc so may have to make difficult choices (including letting 645 on the backburner for a while)...

Seems very nice to me:
2.4GHz wireless with other godox flashes including studio stuff.
Transmitter/remote available for Pentax too it seems.

Good stuff.

Wim, The GR is a pure photographer's tool.
I have a GR (I) and I love it everytime I used it . Of course it has limitations but it has been surprisingly useful.

Even concerts shots can turn amazing and this really is not supposed to be it's best use.
I could lend it to you if ya want.
