    Much more pics on Nokishita. This is the K-s1 exercise all over. Have they learned nothing? Making a dslr look like a mirrorless detracts from it’s functionality and ease of use.

  • Good grief – the K5/K3 design was amazing, timeless. I thought Pentax would have learnt a lesson about design experimentation with the K-01 and K-S1, but somehow they still decided to botch this up …

      Agreed. If this is the K-3II replacement it is a disaster on multiple levels. Whomever thought it was a good idea to replace a DSLR style grip with a retro one should be fired. This whole chase the “retro” look has gone too, too far. I’m coining a new phrase: “retro pretension.” If this camera sits below a K-3II replacement then I can understand the quirkiness. All pentaxians want is a better K-3II. Done.

      I don’t mind the look of this one in all-black, but yeah, on-point with the K-01 and K-s1 lessons.
      And I say that as a K-01 owner.

    This is a still-only camera…who in the Ricoh offices looked at the dF and say “we can do that, with an APSc sensor, and better”
