Just wondered ... a simple DSLR?
Oct 12, 2011

I was just wondering ... now that the megapixel war has stepped up into the 20+ MP ...

What if (yes, a big IF) Pentax releases a very simple and basic DSLR, in the form of a "chopped down" K-5 that just takes pictures. Just think of old days' film SLRs that really has nothing much, but this time a DSPLR with excellent IQ, metering, AF, WB, DR and basic MASP functions and that's it. No sepcial filters, no video, or anything.

I mean, this way, the manufacturer can really cater to the "actual" needs of photgraphers. Also keeps the camera cost lower.

Or, better yet, just keep the K-5 in production for another 15-20 years and turn it into a classic like the K-1000 is ...

Just an opinion. (And a dream.)
