The future of the consumer camera market is in the mirrorless space with mobile connectivity via bluetooth.  Pentax and Ricoh are missing an advanced ML camera.  The pooorly designed, K-01, missing an EVF,  was dead on arrival and the not yet available GR, is missing an interchangable mount or an EVR. Ricoh should produce a ML camera with an interchangeable M mount under the Ricoh brand with a line of auto focusing lenses that would also accept M mf lenses AND a Pentax mount for a Pentax version that woud allow the use of vintage and current Pentax lenses,, a state of the art built in electronic viewfinder, and a great 35mm sized sensor.  A camera like that, priced at around $3,000 would be Ricoh/Pentax's flagship camera.  Such an advanced camera would eclipse the overppriced Leica M, compete effectively with anything Nikon or Canon have, and drive the rest of the Ricoh and Pentax line.

agreed. GR body, 1" sensor and compact lenses.
