I hear what you are saying.

And ... it has been said lots of times already. It is not rocket science to get to that conclusion.

But ... it is not all that easy. There are already several mirrorless mounts/brands out there. And it looks like it is slightly crowded. A mirrorless Pentax with a new mount. What would that add to the world? If it is just a new mount ... not much. It will then be just another one ... that is quite late to the table.

Now, if you made it, via some clever contraption, fully compatible with KAF2, including the screw drive, then it might add something. At least for us that have used K mount some years and have a nice collection of K mount lenses.

But, of course - fully compatible with Canon and/or Nikon mounts would be several times better for most photographers. So ... should Pentax make such a thing?
