Re: Rumoured Pentax FF : follow classic mz5n

I realize this thread is largely IN JEST, but at any rate, I'm going on the record to say that...

I, for one, am NO FAN of this "retro trend" in digital cameras, with new cameras coming out with old-style dials on them that give FEWER options (such as 1/8 second -- 1/1000 second, plus B, or thereabouts), and similar limitations, and usually cost as much as or MORE THAN comparable FF cameras with all the features we've come to expect (I'm thinking specifically of recent models by Fuji and Sony).

As long as Pentax has taken to get to FF, IF Ricoh DOES come out with a "K-1" next year, I, for one (and I think I speak FOR MANY) hope it will be something like a FF version of the K-3, except maybe with another new feature or two (or improvement, etc.).

After all, That's still what the majority are producing, and what I think most camera buyers want. And I think if Ricoh is going to try to earn back a decent share of the market for Pentax it DOES NOT need to go off in eclectic directions.

A word is worth 1/1000th of a picture... Maybe that's why I use so many words!
