Some mirrorless options for Pentax
5

I thought I'd sketch some of the options for hypothetical future mirrorless Pentax cameras.

Option 1: Don't do it!

(I don't want to start a rumour. I have no evidence that Ricoh/Pentax have any intention of releasing a mirrorless system camera).

Option 2: Mirrorless K-mount cameras

Pentax doesn't have to follow the examples of Sony, Nikon, etc.

Staying with K-mount doesn't necessarily prevent new lens designs taking advantage of having no mirror to avoid.

Option 3: New mount for mirrorless cameras

This could be done without alienating people with a large investment in K-mount lenses, while still enabling new lens designs to take advantage of having no mirror to avoid.
