Re: Attractive ?

A digital LX would be very costly, so let's take another highly respected film camera as base. Let's make a digital Super A that has:

  • 36 Mp FF fixed sensor without IBIS
  • manual focus
  • physical + electronic aperture control
  • supports all K-mount lenses (as far as possible for MF etc.)
  • no LCD screens at all
  • bright old school viewing with non translucent mirror /large penta prisma / matt glass with split screen tool
  • basic settings with P, Tv, Av, M, X, B
  • compact metal housing

Such a camera would be a niche for old school shooters like me, just needing basic manual settings for an optimal result. Shots could be viewed on an attached smartphone or at home on your PC.

Would it be competitive with a K1 and would it attract you for buying one? How much would you pay for it?

If I could get one for $ 1000 or so I would buy one...

I wrote pretty much the same thing few days back .. so yes .. for 1000, I would buy it too. But had to be like MX
