The XT-1 is basically what I would love to see Pentax do. Mirrorless with an excellent EVF. APS-C would be just fine but FF would be even better.

Why Pentax? They're a traditional SLR brand...

I keep telling myself to wait and see what Pentax comes out with this year. Am I in for a good surprise or am I missing the Fuji boat?

If you're looking for an X-T1, go for it (but you haven't missed the Fuji boat, since it was barely announced)

For reference I have a K-5, K-01, Q, AND Fuji X100. I love Pentax, and feel like waiting to see what is in store this year but the XT-1 is darn near perfect.

Thoughts? Friendly advice or rumors of what this year may bring for Pentaxians?

More DSLR products.


Good points, but why can't they do both? Neither the Q nor the K-01 look like traditional SLR's to me. This may sound completely absurd, but if Pentax released a Q lookalike with EVF and APS-C or FF sensor I'd be smitten. I do ove the Marc Newson "brick" though.

At the end of the day I get the most control with my K-5, though soooooo.
