Re: Some mirrorless options for Pentax

The risk is that I duplicate the post of Alex. So, I deliberately avoided to read it to the end.

1. No mirrorless

This is a doable future. I assume it will work out. Pentax will then eventually be THE ONLY DSLR choice. I assume they will find buyers. Not maybe all that many, but enough to rest on the economy of Ricoh. At some point in time, it will die.

2a. K-mount mirrorless cameras

Pentax could make some few mirroress K-mount cameras and still have SLR as main branch. Pentax then need to be a bit more careful than for K01.

2b. K-mount mirrorless system

Nope. No. Niet. I do not believe in this path. It will be a bit too crippled compared to competition.

3. New mount (with adapter)

This is probably the safest bet

Note that both 2b and 3 will need new lenses in order to be competitive with AF.
