    pentax also sells alot of K-x, so the price increase in pentax lenses all this while i can say its due to K-x meh...

    if price increase its because pentax sell alot of EVIL camera... then pentax can stop making dslr liao... since it has no impact on the market...

    Would that be the one reason for you to switch full-time to Pentax?

    Supposedly handles high ISO like D700? ....... just get the D700 ........ no need to wait ...........

    speaking of the demand for primes if pentax actually comes out with EVIL camera..
    i think it'll do pentax good as they will get more business, increase prices for lenses, making more revenue, and more money can be used for R&D, making more lenses for us..
    hahahahaha

    real EVIL

    If the EVIL is the size of the ME Super or MZ-5n and takes K-mount w/o adapters, I think Pentax will have a big winner.
    The NEX just looks odd with the cigarette box and Heinz bean can combo that they oddly like to tout in the ads.

    Well, lets see in Sept.

    EVIL will likely have a small flange distance (sensor to rear element) so that the camera is compact
    Samsung NX10 is 25.5mm
    M4/3 is 20mm
    Sony Nex is 18mm

    K mount is 45.46mm, so an adapter is needed for K lenses.
    I hope the EVIL to be small with a nice small set of kit + zoom.
    At the same time, with adapers for K lenses (AF best) and all other mounts... er cheap one lah not like $200 for an adapter.

    You mean by getting her the camera, your application for capital expenses on lenses can be approved more easily?

    Hahaha

    Not unless it has corrective lens element inside the body to accommodate k mount lenses. No need adapter but will definitely have small IQ degradation..

    There would not be a need for an adapter if the camera was sized to that of a film SLR (Yes flange to film plance dist. 45.46mm).
    Many of the current small form factor EVILs are made small for the sake of being small anyway (like the NEX+bean can example). They don't end up being pocketable nor balanced as such. The NX10 is more reasonable in size though (ie. bigger).
    The SR would probably have to go though, but on the other hand, a smaller more easily holdable camera would have a tad bit more mileage on camera shake with small lenses.

    An adapter would likely mean loss of auto aperture and/or AF, which I hope will not be the way. New small lenses would also take away production and development capability from standard APS-C DSLRs.

    Then, again, enough speculation from me
    Lets see in Sept.
    (I just keep my fingers crossed)
