With what for lenses? for it to work they would need to bring out 4-6 lenses, and even that couldn't even begin to compete with Canikon and for only 5% of the market, I don't see it!

Their ploy is the MF market, Canikon aren't there, and all that is there Pentax "can" compete with, on price as well as a new approach to MF, ending the "shoebox" camera format. The range of lenses in that market is a lot less demanding and they have now called on the range that previously only sold in Japan.

In short they have cut the price of an MF body by 2/3rds. I'd say that's sharp business!

Why would they risk to enter in the FF market which only has a 5% share?  To do so I would say is very risky.
