Yay! Ricoh Imaging will announce a new camera this month or next month! (Nokishita)

I suppose that the K-1 II may already be in one class, a second could be in another. For some reason I was thinking two FF camera's as well but that may not be the case. However maybe releasing two FF DSLR's at the same time isnt a stretch if one of them used the same body as the current K-1 and both had very similar internals with the exception of the sensor.

An updated 18-50 plm is long over due. What new user would pick up a camera with a screw drive lens and prefer it to a faster, quieter one.

wrt to the other forum I can hardly be bothered to comment it seems very toxic over there.

I saw that post as well and I think this is the second time he has mentioned it. This of course would be fantastic news if true(not for everyone though). Perhaps this explains the 11-18mm delay as they focus on FF for the short term.

A lot of banter was very dismissive of this lens on another forum. I think this lens will be a hit with those who purchase it.

Could be, maybe the actual K1 replacement wasn't quite ready so they gave the K1 a minor update a la K1 II. Now they release a K2, competitor to the D850 for 2499.99 usd.
BAM

This all sounds expensive, but pretty cool. I wonder how this would work with the electronically controlled mirror with half of the light projected towards the pentrism and half towards the sensor?

The K-1 II smokes it, unfortunately with most companies moving to mirrorless it may be hard to find a sensor that doesnt have a banding issue. Maybe some sensors will be made with limited number of or no board phase detection points.

1) not a traditional DSLR, this could mean:
A)Mirrorless
B) hybrid viewfinder
C) new translucent mirrorless tech
D) B and C

2) high speed and high resolution

3) I hope so

Buying a "cool" camera comes at a premium price. DSLR's aren't cool don't you know.

With that being said many new mirrorless are very quick and capable camera's and that is reflected in the prices.

Perhaps the kind of poll needed is not what camera do you want but what type of photography do you do. People may say they want something but will it actually benifet there style of photography. If the answer is no they are unlikely to buy it.

Maybe the K3 replacement will be a sub 2000 dollar FF camera simlilar to the D750 in specs. Crop mode will be a bit meh but otherwise it could be good follow up. I would buy one.

The sensor in the K70 is a high performance sensor already, and the mechanically moving parts of a DSLR are more expensive and more challenging to implement. You are replacing the mirror assembly, the autofocus module, the optical pentaprism and the RGB sensor with a electronic viewfinder. This is less expensive and simpler.

Pentax spends a lot of time waiting to see where the market is heading before making a decision. Playing it safe I suppose which can be good when you are a small player. However they need a broader appeal and they can do this buy offering a mirrorless K mount camera. It doesn't need to look like a mirrorless camera in fact it should look like a slightly smaller and lighter DSLR. The main benefit of mirrorless is how cheap it is to build. This would be the Pentax entry level camera. The mid level would be a camera like the KP which doesn't have to change much at all. The highest level apsc should combine the benefits of both systems. K3 +

This let's consumers no that optical view finders are a premium product but you can still get into a great system if you don't care about that. This would provide an upgrade for both types of cameras as well.

Just a random thought.

So will you switch back to Pentax if you like the next FF if it has better buffer, fps autofocus etc. Or is there something else to it?
