No, that's wrong of course.
As wrong as to say that film is dead, and even falser just for the fact that mirrorless brings no image quality improvement.

SLR will continue because there'snothing a mirrorless can do an SLR cannot do.
To the opposite, there are a few things ML will NEVER be able to do :
- be analog to the photograph's view
- be more energy efficient
- be more longlasting (sensor durability, technical obsolecence)
- allow lens use without power.

Rdenney's test is an example :

SMC Pentax-A 645 80-160mm F4.5 Reviews - 645 Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

If we are lucky and get a new 645 body we will see what i am meaning ; if not we will see nothing more.

But let's stop this out of topic discussion.

Write whatever you want...
I own the almost complete 645 lens line, and i can insure you that some of them were already finding their limit resolutionwise with the first 645D : e.g. FA 45/2.8 and FA80-160/4.5
Btw, this is wellknown and not only my findings, but I lack time to find links for you.

Which imho is the best way to move forward against competition.
But then you stop current DA28-45 and need desperately some new optics in the WA department.
Or maybe doing with this zoom the reverse operation like the one that was done with DFA 25/4 => DA 25/4:)

Inherently to their concept, DPR must write a permanent clickbait tale.

Their businessmodel implies that they find good boys and bad boys around their stories, for their stories to be read by an increasing assistance.

For that sake, Pentax is the ideal bad boy : low marketshares, no marketing/advert participations, erratic novelties, atypic products, some would say prehistoric technos (no 4K, no ML, no tactile screens, ...).
Most of which, very few new products ; therefore low impact on the dominant overconsommation oriented mantras in our declining world.

You might not care about cost/quality ratios, but some do.
K-p is largely more affordable than the last Fuji, with nothing really lacking, photographically speaking.
