A plan for Pentax FF
In reply to Pontoneer, 9 months ago

What I'd like would be two Pentax FFs: a new LX as a "pro" body with all the bells and whistles of the best modern DSLRs, and a new K1000 (call it a K1K if you like) sturdy and basic, no video, with stripped down features like a single center focus point, easy access to all manual controls, and a digital version of the classic match needle meter.  Both would make it easy to use the old manual lenses, perhaps by including a split image focusing screen, and would arrive accompanied by a selection of good new lenses with real working aperture rings.

There-- the best of both worlds, with the two models sharing a basic body shell and a lot of the electronics.  There is certainly a precedent for this in Pentax history.
