Tom Caldwell: I am a Ricoh fan. Pity that I have abandoned the dslr concept, have no modern Pentax lenses, not interested in Medium Format, am also not interested in 360 degree images and my GR is working fine and will do for many more years. Maybe the GXR line concept can be resurrected but no mention was made.

All very bullish about what they can do but I would be a little more concerned that quite a few others would not share this enthusiasm.

The new lenses will be on sale next year.

I think GR could be made with short wide-angle zoom (equiv.21-36 mm) -
14-24/3.5, for example. F3.5 could be good compromise for compactness of lens and camera. IMO. 21 mm is good for landscapes, 36 mm is very good for all kind of shooting.

All weather with removable EVF is outstanding travel gear.

Class A: Nice to hear confirmation that the K-1 has been selling very well! The apparent commercial success rhymes with the popularity and acceptance rate the K-1 has very quickly gained in Pentax-specific forums.

The K-1's handling is deeply satisfying and it achieves gorgeous results, in particular with the Limited lenses.

Well done Ricoh! The enthusiastic reception of the K-1 is a well-deserved reward for the respective development investment.

Russia is European market. :)

ogl: They know that camera could be overheating...
It could heat till 70C. Wow...The battery (even 3200 mAh) is really weak.
Expensive camera with a lot of minuses. The only one unique thing - not big for MF camera.

I have right to post any opinion which doesn't break laws.

ogl: X1D+30+90 = 15 700 USD

Who will be the users of this system?
The system has no any serious advantage over classical MF cameras at all.

There was cheap MF film camera in Soviet Union. Lubitel 166. It was mass-production and everyone could buy this gear. It was made 1.400.000 cameras of different modification. It was real national camera.
Fuji and Hassy don't make mass cameras, alas...

The question is not to buy or to buy. We just discuss and exchange opinions.

Triplet Perar. For example, 645 lenses have been always available in Russia for many years, all lenses. What are you talking about? Russian photo market is not big, by the way. But we can buy ANY Pentax 645 lens.

zakaria: What about many versions of GR like what Sigma did with dp models.
GR with 14 mm f 4. GR with 35 mm f 1.8. GR with 70 mm f 2.4.
I prefer to buy 14 mm and 35 mm versions. Forgot to mention the sensor must be APS-C and the body comes with built-in VF. Ricoh is working for premium. OK this body is a premium for me.

70/2.4 is not right way. IMO. Wide-angle and standart version are more attractive.
Add ALL WEATHER version of GR :)

Class A: The Fuji GFX 50s is neat, but I don't think it will be able to compete with the 645 system in the long run. While both share the same sensor size at the moment, the 645 system can grow to feature a full-size 60mmx45mm sensor whereas the mount size of the Fuji suggests it will always be stuck in "baby-MF" land.

AFAIC, the Fuji is better characterised as an "FF+" camera. The classic and common MF film cameras featured larger formats and the 645 system can evolve into a "full MF" system without users having to change their lenses (or even the mount).

Personally, I think the 645 has further advantages (OVF instead of EVF, plus adequate hardware controls rather than featuring a limiting retro-approach). However, I am aware of the fact that others come to a diametrically opposed conclusion. To each their own.

Plus - No overheating, better battery, more lenses, good ergonomics.

Jefftan: "many GR lovers, it's a very emotional attachment. That's why we need to listen to customers about where we should go.』"

Most wanted in order of importance
1. Weather seal
2. in body 5 axis IS
3. brighter aperture like F2
4. wider lens like 24mm
5. 24 MP copper sensor as in A6300

Please Ricon, #1 most important, give all of us (the whole photographer community) a large sensor weather seal camera

Richard Butler, thanks for such info. It's good news.

I just see a lot minuses of this system. First is the price. Second is overheating. Third is weak battery and power consumption. Fourth is smaller sensor than MF FF forever. Is it enough?

Kostasm: Yes, mirrorless is the future and Hasselblad is in the the right direction with X1D, just compare the size with the same sensor Pentax 645z.. it's amazing!

Good ergonomics and good weight and size balance is MUCH better than X1D made. Smaller size is some kind of fetishism.

ogl: Hasselblad X1D and Fuji GFX has no any advantage over classical MF DSLR.
New lenses could cover only limited sensor, the lenses are not compact, the battery life is very short, EVF couldn't replace OVF, so big sensor in MF mirrorless camera has the problem of overheating. The dimension of X1D and GFX has no any sense for studio work. Solid camera is better for shooting by hands. Less vibration.
Put 100 MP sensor in 645Z's upgrade and all lenses of Pentax will work at 100%. I don't see any danger from X1D and GFX for Ricoh.

Of course, when a product gets warm it uses a lot of energy. It drains the battery faster. Because of the amount of data we’re dealing with, the processors can become very warm. We have a thermal shut-off if the internal temperature gets to 70C, both to protect the sensor and to avoid the additional noise it would produce, but it’s mainly to protect the components...

As I think...

Why do you think that smaller dimensions is advantage?
