I think still a lot of people would like to post to social media directly from the camera. Run on Android so it's the same as their smartphone.


Oh wait...I just quit Facebook........:)

Development update regarding the HD PENTAX-D FA★50mmF1.4 SDM AW

I too did some years ago a real look at the lens quality of the three lenses I used on aps-c. All for portraitscenes and the best was DA*55, then FA*85 and the least of the bunch was FA31. To be honest non of them where bad. Just different types of great. The DA55 had the least number of lensspeckles (all easy to clean in lightroom). So older lenses will have more trouble to hold their ground in modern days.

For these old lenses a 24 megapixel fullframe would be more for giving. The K-1 is just a bit to much I guess.

So they have to be paired to be of same age and use? Yes they are bigger, but are they more energy efficiŽnt?

A KP with just one 18650 would have great battery life. Is this an option, technical?

I was looking around for some electrical transportation and thus one looks at battery's. So I came across something that made me wonder. Why do camera makers, Pentax is one, not use one of those popular and large new battery's that Tesla uses, in their large camera's?

Lithium-ion battery - Wikipedia

The 18650 is the most used one. In the model S they have 7104 of these cells.

A camera like K-1 could maybe use 2 of them. On the other hand a K-02 mirrorless with two of them would be a cracker compared to the competition, energy wise.

Anyone an idea about this or how this works?

The same is for upgrading the GRII with 24mp and new image processing from KP.

The simplyest explanation for this not coming is not enough sales to make this new or extra model. Ricoh-Imaging announced to trim down the camera line and that is what happend. Now it is K-70, KP and K-1ii for K-mount. Once the KP is up for replacement this could be done with a little higher spec camera in the line of K-3iii but with a new name.

Let's see what Canon and Nikon are going to do. They can still go the route of the K-01 and use their current mount from dslr for mirrorless.

With af-c the K-5 went down to 2,9 fps and that maybe feels sluggish.

And then there was the odd pricing where KP was 50 % more expensive then K-3ii at a time.

The K-S1 started overhere at 649 euro and got no sales. It was way overpriced for what it was.

This is changing over time. The new model every year is getting old news. There simply isn't enough development to make a new model stand out in such quick steps.

MF - 645Z, maybe every 5 years is enough since there is no new sensor
FF - K-1 (ii), they can go along 4 years or so, the ii-upgrade is small (when you look at having the same sensor)
HIGH RANGE APS - K-3ii, not in the market, but K-3 is from 2013 and this is over time.
MID RANGE APS - KP, even 2 years would be fast
LOW MID RANGE - K-70, every other year is fast enough
LOW RANGE - K-, not in the market and probably never coming

Overal sold units dslr are much lower for all brands then years ago, so having them longer in shops is a way to keep costs lower.

Well with no EVF that can be done

Compare camera dimensions side by side

It still doesn't get cheap when it is done right.

dslr shipping to Japan was down 16 % in units (1 % up in yen) and since this is the homebase for Pentax, that is no party.

I did a Quick count in one large shop.
Dslr 36 different models
Milc 56 different models

So production runs for these different models can be really low in units.
