Ricoh - Pentax .. do you catch my drift?

I guess it really takes guts to launch a newer version of a 16 mp full frame sensor when 24mpx. seems to be the new standard in APS-C. I bet this new sensor will be a low-light, high-dynamic-range, not-huge-files kind of monster.

I'd love such a sensor in a full frame K mount. Mirrorless or traditional design, I don't care much ...

Comments, criticism, suggestions: it goes without saying!

IMHO 16mp is still the sweet spot for speed, DR and noise. I still feel that 16mp is a lot for normal studio and photo-journalistic use (the D3S I use every now and then is still a lot really). But I guess more people wants more resolution.

But if a K3 bodied 16mp AA less 135 format from Pentax was ever made, I'd welcome it with open arms.

There is no such thing a "Pro" level gear, just Pro level work.
