120mp video? CCTV wet dream?
Rutterbutter: Lets see what would we want...- 36+ Megapixel- 1/250th / sec flash sync or faster- wifi- focus peaking- Dx lens compatibility- Faster Focus speed and sensitivity- 4K video/30+fps- Touch screen with toggle to de-activate- 7+FPS- ISO Native 50-102400 or higher- 100% viewfinder- Weather sealed/magnesium body- Digital focus crop. Like D7100 for maximizing focus coverage- Better in camera HDR and live preview of filters- No AA filter- 1000 shot battery approx- Swivel screen and articulating.
Feel free to add to this. but this would probably be the best selling camera ever..
I doubt it will be compatible with DX lenses. DA on the other hand.
Robbie Corrigan: DA wide = DA12-28 f/4 not 10-30, bars don't reach 10 or 30. Probably a successor to 12-24 f/4
D-FA* 24-70 f/2.8 (High end normal zoom, sister / brother to D-FA* 70-200)D-FA 28-105 f/variable (FF Kit lens perhaps, good range for normal photography)D-FA(*?) 15-30 f/2.8 or f/4 (Will it be a STAR line? or Mid-Range)
The FA 28-105 3.2-4.5 wasn't such a good lens. It will be a new design. DFA 28-105 F4
wildkat2: Dollar to a doughnut the two wide end zooms are actually rebadged Tokina lenses. The DA is likely the Tokina 12-28 f/4 and the D-FA is likely the Tokina 16-28 f/2.8
mgrum: The fact that the mockup has been made with a 3D printer suggests they are still a long way off releasing this camera. I do hope it does come to fruition though.
Maybe they'll offer the camera as the first printable dslr. Soon to be found on tpb.
Marty4650: It will probably be a great camera, but it sure is an ugly beast!
wait until you see the colour options.
It'll have sensorshift super res like the oly e-m5
D1N0: If they can make a Sigma mount they can make a K&A mount too. Who the hell owns a Sigma dslr...
I'm not faulting Sigma for supporting their DSLR, but for not supporting Pentax and Sony. At least not at launch.
KL Matt: Dream come true. But why is the 35 in Pentax mount, but the 24 isn't????
This is not exactly a walkaround. Nice compact f2.8 would be nice.
K-mount was later for the 35. They are waiting to see how well it sells.
If they can make a Sigma mount they can make a K&A mount too. Who the hell owns a Sigma dslr...
Canon didn't want to cannibalize their dslr sales. Now other companies are eating into that they get more serious about mirrorless. They'll have to launch more models though.
D1N0: They are making it so unwieldy that it must be aimed at hipsters.
D1N0: Since DPReview isn't going to review this camera (hence the name dpreview...) I will post a link here to a site that does. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/pentax-k-s2/pentax-k-s2A.HTM
They're all a bunch of hipster snobs with funny little mirror less camera's in Etsy crafted native american pouches. I can safely say that, because they are afraid to look in this topic. ;)

MichaelIgnat: I have a Pentax K-5.Major flaws:-focuses very slowly in low light-never meters properly with a flash in TTL mode, when changing the flash head position from "zero", vertically or horizontally.
Does the new K-S2 fix these problems?
It has the SAFOX-X Af module from the K-5II which focuses two stops slower. EV -3. AF works if you can still see.
LensBeginner: Is this the first Pentax with tilting lcd?*And* WR too! :-)
What about selfies. Under water selfies are cool!
"The K-S2 LCD monitor also features a variable-angle design for the first time in a PENTAX digital SLR camera. By rotating the monitor 180 degrees to face the subject, the user can activate the self-portrait shutter button, to capture the perfect selfie!"
But where is this infamous selfie button located? Is it he wifi-button?
