Pentax K-1 Mark III camera still under development

Here is the recap from a recent marketing event in Taipei with Ricoh executives:

  • New Pentax K-1 Mark III camera is still under development.
  • The Pentax film camera project is in good progress but further details will not be disclosed. Collaboration with other film product manufacturers will be made.
  • Unlikely that the Pentax Q system will be brought back to life.
  • The 645 system is at the end of the development cycle.
  • Mirrorless is not a viable option for Pentax.
  • New Pentax DFA* wide angle lens(es) and replacement of the DA* 50-135mm are being considered.

Also: Ricoh will not be participating in the next 2024 CP+ show (February 22 – 25), but I think we can expect a new Ricoh GR camera to be announced in early 2024.
