Re: Survival of the K-mount in the mirrorless world.

We go around and around.  Mirrorless is one wave of the future.  Many have adopted this path, but not Pentax.  Until they say and then prove that this path makes sense for them, can we just assume that is not really worth our time pushing this path on Pentax.  Sorry!

So what do we have -- a superb K1.  It works great (and I mean really great) for all but those applications that involve considerable subject movement.  Look at work by our colleagues who do landscapes, relatively still animal and bird captures, portraits, and macro images.  If this was all there was, Pentax K1-II would be it!.

But many of us do both types of work and we are not happy.  Could there be an upgraded full full frame K1 that did both -- that would be great.  Will the new APSc release meet our needs.  I am betting on Pentax at this time.  Thus the K -mount stays and they round out there camera body options.  This keeps there installed base on board and if the new camera is a true gem opens up other marketing avenues.

One man's opinion.
