Do we really want ANOTHER Pentax lens mount?

The XT-1 is basically what I would love to see Pentax do. Mirrorless with an excellent EVF. APS-C would be just fine but FF would be even better.

I keep telling myself to wait and see what Pentax comes out with this year. Am I in for a good surprise or am I missing the Fuji boat

So, we want a full-frame K-mount camera for our FA Limiteds and older glass; then of course we have our DA lineup for APS-C; and then there's the Q system; and then there's the 645D mount.

And so now we want to add an all new, mirrorless mount to the mix? Sounds like a prescription for failure to me. If you like the Fuji so much ... buy the Fuji. Personally, although the Fuji system looks appealing, I think all these mirrorless systems (Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji) have too many players already, and there's going to be a lot of red ink with at least one or two of them.
