It would be nice to have a film camera that's new and can use k-mount lenses. I'm afraid there might be differences between the actual product and what I want though, the main one probably being the price;)

If they can make it under $1000, with good ergonomics, simple design and a great viewfinder I'm in.

MaciekPruski: I'll stick with my Pentax KP. It looks even better, has IBIS and an OVF. I've used a Nikon FM2n in the past and shooting with a mirrorless camera with EVF is not going to give you the same feel, no matter how good it looks

I'm not saying that the EVF is bad or that it isn't useful. It just feels very "digital" so it's not a great fit with a camera that tries to be very retro-inspired. It will look retro but the shooting experience will be that of a modern MILC. I prefer the KP because it feels really vintage as a whole package, especially paired with DA limited prime lenses, and still takes great pictures

Nice camera. I hope the price will be more reasonable. I remember that some of their recent lenses were also announced to be very expensive and then they actually cost less.
I'd like one, but definitely price will be a factor.

Not great. The highlights in these pictures look quite bad, overall many higher-end smartphones give much better quality.

On article Ricoh video details the next flagship Pentax APS-C DSLR (655 comments in total)

It's probably going to be a good camera. I like the addition of AF joystick. Really I'm ok with the speed and accuracy of Autofocus on my Pentax cameras but focus point selection with buttons is a tad too slow.

I think doing a great viewfinder is a pretty cool step forwatd, I wasn't expecting this and it's a great feature.

I hope they improve video though, even the addition of focus peaking during video would solve a lot, I can't understand why it is available before capture but not during capture. That's going to be a major point for me when deciding to buy this or not. If video is unchanged I think the new features wouldn't justify the cost of switching from my excellent KP

Wait, is that some sort of AF joystick at the back? If there's anything I'd really like to have on the KP it would be a joystick

They forgot about the Pentax K70. It is nowhere near entry-level and at a similar pricepoint as the cameras mentioned. I think it might be one of the best deals out there actually for folks on a budget- upper class APSC image quality, shake reduction, weather sealed, good physical controls. Also, unlike many cameras on this list you can buy really cheap fast primes for it and getting a fast zoom like 16-50 f2. 8 won't be that expensive either

The accelerator unit seems to squeeze quite a bit more performance from the sensor. There was a test, I think on this site, where they tested the K-1 mark I against the KP that has the accelerator unit and the KP performed impessively given the difference in sensor size. A fair upgrade for someone who wants to move to a full frame Pentax , I doubt that too many people will upgrade from the K1.

MaciekPruski: to mirrorless manufacturers: how about a high (-ish) quality body cap lenses? I think there would be market for a $150-200 constant aperture body cap lens that can deliver sharp pictures

right, but a fisheye is not a fantastic walkaround lens

To manufacturers: what do you think about supplying high-quality raw development software with your cameras- especially brand specific software?

A lot of people like and use the Olympus Viewer 3- for me it is a factor that keeps me from buying other brands' cameras to some degree.

Samsung used to include LR with their cameras too..

I think it is a great opportunity especially for beginner photographers who wouldn't otherwise consider buying and learning commercial software to make the most out of their cameras and pictures. It can also encourage them to dig deeper into photography

To Olympus: why are you not offering the ED 14-42 EZ compact zoom as a kit lens for your mirrorless cameras. Panasonic is already selling their smaller mirrorless cameras with compact zooms- sticking that large ( and ugly) kit lens on your otherwise excellent cameras defeats the purpose a little bit.

Jan Toude: To All: Is there any demand for a pocketable rugged camera with good image quality and RAW recording?
To manufacturers: Can such a camera be profitable?

+1 to this. maybe a larger sensor, eg. 1/1.7 inch?

I am actually glad to see companies focusing on great looks, build quality and erqonomics instead of trying to cramp a too big sensor in a too small camera and sacrificing responsiveness, control dials, manual focus, EVF, lens speed and overall shooting pleasure for this.
For me this camera looks really good but I also think that olympus currently has better choices- the Stylus 1 and the much cheaper XZ-2
