"we have many things to develop for the future modules"

I'm copying and pasting this from the other thread because I thought it deserves its own discussion as the first definitive confirmation from Pentax Ricoh of many things to come for the GXR:

From the pentaxforums interview with Shigeru Wakashiro, head of the Pentax Product/Camera System Planning Team of Pentax Ricoh Japan:

The GXR bit starts at 21:00. Turn the captioning on to read the exact translation.

The money quote at 22:30:

"Among the engineers, there have been discussed such ideas as the Q-mount module or K-mount module for the GXR. However, we have many things to develop for the future modules , so as of today we don't have any clear plans to go for this kind of module."

So there you go, straight from the chief product planning guy's own mouth - 'many future modules'.

Alas then, no K-mount module for the moment. But on the positive side, what could be in store if they think they have better modules to work on than a K-mount one!
