I own a Q and K7. The Q is so small and probably has one of the most comprehensive controls of any "compact interchangable lens" system out there. The K7, like the K3, is a die-hard design refusing to get rid of the top LCD display which is effectively a digital version of the current in-vogue dials. Combining the two one way or another doesn't seem too far fetched. Making a Q camera with an EVF would answer a quest by many, especially those of us with ageing eyes. On the other hand a K3 with dials would be a DF killer and would be a mirrored alternative to the ever increasing number EVF competition. For one, the battery would last several times longer than the rest! What I don't see is a Pentax KAF-FF-EVF, it would be too mainstream in the current market, which Pentax is not.
