Pentax mirrorless
Feb 9, 2011

There seems to have been some rumors about a mirrorless Pentax (NC-1?)

I was hoping with all these camera announcements we would get word of it...

It doesn't seem so, basically the rumors were that it would be an A110 like camera, but if you look at the size of 110 film is pretty much is 4/3 sensor size dead on the other rumor I read was 5x crop.

Is there any better more definitive news on this.

The way I look at the Pentax is if it is k-mount then it has to have the film plane distance of K which would make it rather a deep camera vs m4/3, so if they were to make one like sony and olympus they probably have to start a new lens system which means there isn't a ton of brand advantage and no glass is portable.

What is great about Pentax is true legacy support but I don't see how it could be maintains and stay small if they do mirrorless...

Anyone heard any more definitive information?
