Wow can you imagine a possibly FF mirrorless with a k-mount evil class cam.... with that retro styling?

I hope Pentax / Ricoh gets thier new models out soon!
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

I should imagine the Pentax Ricoh machinery is already in action, but what and when is currently anybody's guess.

I agree, but so sad somebody swiped the LX moniker....

Minox had an LX Camera in 1978.
Panasonic currently have the LX5.

yep... you just can't lock down two letters legally...

but still an all digital LX with interchangable prism/evf/waistlevel lcd would be cool. no?

Pentax can sue them and stop them from using LX..... It happened
to the Olympus M1 in the 70's... Leica made them change it, so
Olympus used OM1 instead

LX is Roman Numerals for 60. I seem to remember that Pentax launched the LX, 60 years after the forming of the Asahi Company.

I would like the LX name used for a Pentax full frame DSLR.

yes.
but for a camera like this I'd want flash compatibility as well as af...
let's face it Pentax needs a camera like this in it's lineup... an oversized kmount Q
I'd like nothing more than to have the option of shooting the d-slr in daylight, and evf like the nex7 at night or dim interiors, and be able to switch hit between video and stills...
sadly, I'd have to jump brands and go with the nex7, the nex vg20 and one of the sony pelicile mirror slrs, and buy those stupid minolta flash units AND an af adaptor and all new lenses....

be easier for me if Pentax would just hurry up and enter this market segment... and if Ricoh re-entered the video cam market with another Sony cloned video camera, the nex vg20 with kmount for example...
