Next Pentax release (september) choose ONE option
Jun 19, 2013

Dear fellow Pentax users,

I'll allow myself to indulge in one thread that stimulates premature gear longing ("lust" is putting it a bit strong). Coming september, it seems, Pentax will release new products that are relevant for many on this forum, i.e. the "upper" level gear many here use. If you could pick your ONE single favorite release for september, what (if any) would it be? I'll raise some options:

1. new APSC top level DSLR, 24mp sony sensor, revised AF 21 points

2. new APSC top level DSLR, 20mp sony sensor, revised AF 21 points

3. new FF budget DSLR 24 mp, around 1800,-

4. new FF high level DSLR 24 mp, around 2500,-

5. new FF high level DSLR 36 mp, around 2500,-

6. new FF high level DSLR 24 mp bundled with new Pentax 24-70 f2.8 lens, around 3700,-

7. new FF high level DSLR 36 mp bundled with new Pentax 24-70 f2.8 lens, around 3700,-

8. DA AF RC 1.4X SDM & screw drive support

9. DA telezoom 120-380mm f4.5-f5.6

10. DA wide zoom 14-28mm f4

11. other DA lens

12. FF lens

I've left out options that are not ever going to happen, like my favorite wide zoom 14-30mm f2, but there are other options of course that Pentax might surprise us with...

My choice after a close call with the 1.4tc, is 4, mainly because all my lenses are FF, and I am confident that Pentax is able to come out with a totally phenomenal FF camera.

Chris
