    Ah.. I was about to post too.. but you are faster

    Yah no news on FF. It seem the new body finally have a tilt able LCD??

    But the 3 new lenses look interesting..
    The kit lens which is retractable would be cool to keep the camera compact.

    The other 2 zoom lens, hopefully, one of them would keep the birders happy with the versatility, not sure will the reach be 100-500?

    Looks like a K50 with tilt lcd. A K500 with tilt lcd might not be that popular with users who depend on weather sealing.

    Just hoping that its flash sync speed is significantly more then 1/180s.

    Does Ricoh do a "And I have one more thing!" announcement?

    That new kit lens looks real cool.

    Oh.. and remember, this is CES.
    The more important show for Japs is CP+ which happens a few months later

    Have been looking foward to a pentax dslr with flip lcd for a long time. Hope it also does wifi remote via smart device.

    I do wish a K3 MKII with a tiltable screen and also shed some weight. Seems like carrying it after 2 holidays, I feel that its getting heavier and heavier. Not sure if I am getting old or the camera is getting 'fat'. :P

    Built in wifi, NFC and GPS will be great add ons. Just keep the weight down.

    how many Pentaxian are already A7 series users... this FF camera is so tempting.

    I'm still sticking to my trusty K5 for its weather sealing... and it serves me well. but if a K mount FF comes out would be lovely.

    No interest, FF or not no interest as it falls too far behind others in terms of sensors and technology. Till they really come out FF others already at finishing line so we just make do with what we have now or just ...

    I am hoping for a mirrorless ff , light weight with pentax ergonomics and outstanding primes ,it will be a winner.Looks like my hope is going to shatter once again.:`(

    You want add all these in K3 but still want Pentax to cut its weight? Not easily man. The only thing I hope K3 has is built-in Wi-Fi. But I've got a FluCard, so it's settled for me

    We've been playing catching games for over 10 years now. Don't worry, we (Pentax) will hang in there

    I would prefer they use some other materials for the camera body to reduce weight further. I believe it can be done. Now alot of silicon have all the great features built into one tiny chip like the Qualcomm Snapdragon or the Nvidia K1 or X1. So its possible to put many features into a single silicon and the overall size of the camera will come down as well including the weight. Its all depends whether Ricoh/Pentax is exploring that option or not. Sony managed to squeeze so many features (except 4K video recording) into their A7II and still lighter than the K3. So its possible not mission impossible.

    I highly doubt so but guess pentaxian can wait for another 3 years to get to A7 stage or you can use lens turbo to make it into full frame view

    I was checking the CES feeds last night for Pentax and no mention then. Looks like they delayed the announcement till today. I am hoping they have a proper A6000 killer instead of releasing more dslr with same package and specs. Large sensor mirrorless replacements is catching on so Pentax should not miss this boat like they missed the dslr revolution. Maybe also a 1 inch Q series...
