Quote:
Digital single-lens reflex camera of 35 mm full size large image sensor loading of Pentax had been exhibited at the Ricoh booth of CP + 2015. Product name is undecided at present, but in full size machine K mount adoption, you will be able to use the manual focus era of lens and DA lens.


Best regards, John

Nice to see that they have approx 99% kept the same shape and layout as the K3. Just the odd little shape difference here and there and the odd extra button. That's one thing about Pentax for people when they are moving up. They keep things familiar so the learning curve isn't to steep. I think I'll have to save a few pennies from my pension for a couple of years.
CHEERS Vic.
P.S. I think a good name would be either. K35. or just K.F In the tradition of all those KM's LX's etc. Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Perhaps Ricoh should launch a competition to find the name....the winner to get the first camera off the production line

You know what they say "never buy the first version of ANYTHING"! OTOH, if it were free, maybe!
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Hmm going by image 6 I think this may actually be a silicone Pentax cake mould.

Stick a candle in it and sing me happy birthday.

Apologies if this has been posted, but it made me smile.
As much as it is tongue in cheek, it we're honest it's pretty much true.

I know it is about the image quality but the styling is just awful. Not what we expect from Pentax who in recent times have some cutting edge styling. Is this just a pre-production version?

Yes it's pre-production. I'd expect the final version to be a bit less plasticky.

Yes but that's what it appears to be at the moment.... a lump of plastic..!!
