I hope Pentax and all other Camera Companies copy the design of the Sony NEX-7.

That is a Digital Camera I would love to own.


Hi Photographer friends,

Yes, I'm probably one of the biggest and most loyal fan of Pentax equipment and that will never change.  However, with the soon-to-be-available Sony NEX-7, I am hoping that Pentax will develop a similar Digital Camera. The availability of the NEX-7 has been delayed because of the flooding in Thailand, but once the shipping resume, I believe it's going to be one of the most sought after Digital Camera.

The camera seems to incorporate everything that photo enthusiasts have been asking for. It includes a APS-C  (23.5mm x 15.6mm) sized 24MP CMOS sensor, the first really usable Electronic View Finder (EVF),  a mirror-less body, a small footprint, interchangeable lenses (any lenses with adapters, including Pentax, Canon, Nikon and more), a 3" 921,600 dots tilting and swiveling  LCD Monitor, 12 fps shooting, 1080p movie @ 60P and 24P just like the Pro Film Makers,  Object Tracking AF, etc, etc,.

You can read a review here by Luminous Landscape.

Sony makes sensors for other brands of camera makers, Pentax included. I believe that the next DSLR or Mirror-Less camera from Pentax will incorporate this 24MP sensor. I just hope that they make a mirror-less camera with this 24MP sensor and make it compatible with all Pentax DA / DA* lenses. An APS-C mirror-less camera from Pentax would complement the K-5 or any future Pentax DSLR.

The most promising Digital Camera on the horizon for 2012.

EVF and articulated LCD is a perfect combination.

One of the best all around layout and size.
