Pentax/Ricoh need to hurry and release a GXR-K Module to appease all the 'hardcore' on this forum. ideally also with an updated EVF.
An ergonomic wonder "photographer's" camera with small interchangeable legacy lenses AND sensor. Truly innovative with the all-important nod to photo traditionalists.
This is quietly exciting news. only because this and the K-01 mean they are nearing completion of the GXR-K mount.
The actual 'serious' mirrorless K with interchangeable sensors.
that said, Pentax should keep the yellow to Japan and release an all black version available to other regions.
GXR-K and all will be well in Pentax land.
the K-01 is just part of the plan.
Smart of Pentax/Ricoh to recognize how only the unique nature of the K-mount and it's Limited Lenses could be considered at all for a mirrorless camera.
Pentax/Ricoh need to hurry and release the K-Mount GXR module for this camera to make sense. The GXR-K will be the true 'serious' mirrorless K, and then with the inevitable price drop, the simplified and welcoming design of the K-01 could flood schools and christmas trees to be the K1000 for the next generation.
