But I've wondered whether the new APS-C flagship should be Pentax's first new-mount mirrorless camera. After all, that is an early hole that Pentax has to fill. Then FF cameras would follow.

That's a too big responsibility to be given to a mirrorless, and too much of a risk. It's not actually solving the issue of the "missing" K-3's replacement - it introduces a new one, that is having your user base migrating to a new platform.

I understand why you want a mirrorless; however, I'd say most of us / their user base still prefer DSLRs.

So they'd have to introduce mirrorless without ignoring/phasing out DSLRs.

+1

Or just alternate releases of cameras.

One year release mirrorless.

The next year release dSLR.

And then just keep going back and forth.

If you have 2 models in each category . . . that could mean 4 years between major releases. (Which is like Canon and Nikon with their cameras that are geared towards the Olympics shooters.)

Take care & Happy Shooting!
