steelhead3: Another use of the Sony 24mpix?

The sensor is made by STMicroelectronics in Grenoble.

No. The M uses a CMOS 24-megapixel image sensor designed exclusively for Leica by the Belgian company CMOSIS

I can't expect K-3's successor...Ha-ha...But it's easy to wait for K-50's successor. :))))

Andy Dan: The next step will be a golden one like the old LX :-P but made out of plastic.

New lenses that's what Pentax really needs. How about some new 2.8/4 zooms and 1.4/1.8 primes Ricoh? You will never launch the fabled full-frame so newer aps-c glass is a must. Fuji did it in style from scratch.

It's a pity that Pentax has had some bad management and marketing in the last 10-15 years.

DA50/1.8, FA50/1.4, DA*55/1.4, FA43/1.9, FA31/1.8, FA77/1.8.

In reply to:

Siddharth: At $250 it actually competes with all compacts with very limited zooms
Nikon Coolpix S800 series
Canon Powershot series (not all)
Even Sony H400 is more expensive..

This looks like a clever product strategy...

Anyway, what are the price of the same cameras of other brands?

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS - 400 USD, Lumix DMC-FZ200 - 600 USD, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V - 470 USD, Nikon COOLPIX P600 - USD430, Fujifilm FinePix S1 - USD400

caver3d: Unfortunately, the Sony and Panasonic superzooms with the 1" sensor are going to kill this Pentax in the marketplace. I'm surprised that Ricoh went ahead and announced this camera. The only reason some of you will buy the Pentax is because of the price (and I am not anti-Pentax as I have a Pentax K30).

Nonsense. It's 250 USD camera. RX10 is 1000 USD. FZ1000 is 900 USD.

250USD is nothing to discuss. It's not bad for such money.

Strange remark...The camera has OIS - it's switchable.

ogl: 1" sensor is becoming the new trend...Good.

I mean 1" is good for bridge cameras and for top-compacts. Maybe it could be standart for many compact cameras. 1/1.7" could rest in past. Even 2/3" can't reach IQ of 1" sensor at all ISO. Smaller sensors can compete at minimal ISO with 1", but it's all. As for FZ1000 - I like the samples more than RX100MKIII.

RX100III is very expensive.
