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.

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.

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 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.

The system has no any serious advantage over classical MF cameras at all.

Absolutely

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?

X1D is a deadlock. Compare with Sony A7RII.
Ricoh will put 100 MP full frame MF into new camera, but XD system will never carry such sensor.

28 mm is all around, not only landscapes.

GR is always 28 mm as classical focal range in classical GR cameras. It's Japanese tradition. :)

24 MP sensor in K-70 is not worse than 16 MP. 16 MP is discontinued, by the way.

MF is impossible for mass with such prices. All components of MF digital cameras will be always more expensive than FF. 1Ds and 645Z are solid machines. MF mirrorless from Hassy and Fuji are just expensive toys. A7 with 42 MP sensor is cheaper and more practical than new Hassy and Fuji with 50 MP 44*33 mm.

starbase218: I remember, a few years ago, they said they aimedto become the number 1 in autofocus. So as far as becoming the leading DSLR brand, I'm taking that with about a kilogram of salt.

I don't remember - give us the link

obsolescence: There is no UWA for the 645z to replace the discontinued 25mm (or wider) and no UWA T-S lens on the roadmap. That's why I hope Pentax will build a mirrorless MF camera, because at least it would be possible to adapt other lenses (as FujiFilm has announced plans for).

DFA25 and DA25 was discontinued. The reason is hard to understand. Maybe, they will produce something new.

Mirrorless MF is silly thing.
