Hi guys,

do you think there is any chance that there will be a new Pentax full frame camera within a year?

K1 was announced mid 2016; the upgraded version K-1 II mid 2018.

I would like to see a camera with higher resolution, faster body/AF, great 4K video for the new high quality lenses. How about you?

I would think that soon enough the Sony 61 Mpx chip (almost year old) could start appearing in cameras made by other brands as well, no? Sure .. a camera like Sony Alpha 7R IV would be on the expensive side but considering how much Pentax is charging for the new lenses ... Pentax is no longer a cheap brand anyway. I would likely buy a new body for up to ~3500 Eur and keep my K1 as the second body.



Seeing how long it takes to develop the new APSC flagship, chances of a new FF are rather slim.
