    That! What kind of "exclusive" it is ... Here is the boy's Wesch:

    • Jury

      this is rich :)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Soon Pentax will release the TOP Flagship SLR, cropped, and wipe everyone's nose (this is of course sad sarcasm)

    • Ivan

      Or so:

    • Ivan

      Or even like this:

  • Murzik

    Pentax loves to "shaggy grandma"
    Sony has already released Alpha A7, A7R I, A7R II, A7R III, A7R IV, A7 “S” in a number of modifications and generations in parallel with PENTAX in parallel with PENTAX, A9!, RX1R, RX1R II.
    - Pentax, where is the mirrorless?
    - And here's K-1 II
    (in a year)
    - Pentax, where is the mirrorless?
    - And here's a K-1 II in a silver gelatin)
    (in a year)
    - Here's a limited edition online!
    And there it will be 5 more years and you can release the anniversary K-1 anniversals))))

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Also remember that the sensor there actually is from d800 since 2012

      • Pokemon

        Judging by the photos of the owners (and the dxomark rating will not be remembered by the evening), the matrix there is quite nothing, perhaps identical to the d810 or doped for the better.

        • Pokemon

          Yes, and there is a matrix stub, which Nikon d800 / d800e / d810 and the first generation Sony A7R did not have.

          • Puff

            And the astrotracker is quite good

  • Oleg

    Sigma likes to gild the handle and silver the pentax. Sadness. By the way, Sigma has corrected a lot of progress in new optics, which is what we wish for the Pentax

  • Pokemon

    Anyone else, but outwardly this limited edition reminded me of the film cameras of the second half of the 90s and early 00s.

    • Ivan


      • B. R. P.


  • Oleg

    Will not help

  • Oleg

    The case in our time when making good cameras is no longer enough

  • Charles


  • Victor

    No need to hait Pentax! He has optics - God forbid everyone! Are you a little behind in development? So we won in something else. There are no mirrorless cameras, so the niche is not theirs. Who needs it - get Sony Some here, apparently like to throw g .. but on the fan. Not good…

    • Oleg

      The fact is that no one hael him. It just seems that few will survive even if you have good cameras and optics, alas such times for manufacturers

  • Eugene

    Pouring old wine into new wineskins, nothing more. Old problems remain. Autofocus in the first place (10 years behind the leaders) and video (although some do not need it). In K-1, the matrix as in the A7R, D800, D810 is not bad, but with a low shooting speed. The phase-detection AF points are clustered at the center. As for the optics: the originality is a thing of the past, compare the new HD DFA 85 / 1.4 and the Sigma 85 / 1.4 Art, which is just not under the Pentax. The famous Jun Hirakawa left the company. About the raspberry light on the matrices of the K-70, KP crops on the forums has long been filled with soreness. Next in line for Olik?

    • Ivan

      Unlikely. Following Olik, it looks like Nikon is marking time.

      • Maksim

        This is Nikon trampling on "Olik". Oh, and funny.

        • Victor

          The “pentax” has much more chances, they have already gone from hand to hand, unlike Nikon.

          • Ivan

            I do not think so.
