Father or mother firm Ricoh has simply pricked up the ears of the model’s many followers, nevertheless, with lengthy-awaited information of its first ever full-body Okay-mount Pentax DSLR. All we all know up to now is roughly what it appears like (the prototype is proven above), that it will work with Pentax’s DA APS-C lenses utilizing picture cropping, and that it will pack a full-body 35mm sensor. The cropping half is unlucky, since lovers would need a full-body Pentax digital camera for the additional decision and depth-of-subject. Some DA lenses might already be suitable with out cropping, nevertheless, and we might hope that Ricoh can also be engaged on new full-body DA lenses.
