Ricoh has announced it’s developing a new flagship Pentax K DSLR camera with an APS-C sensor.
According to the press release, which is short and to the point, Ricoh will preview the camera at the ‘Pentax Meeting 100th Anniversary Special’ event that will be held in Japan on September 21, 2019. Ricoh says the camera is currently ‘under development for market launch in 2020,’ although no specific timeframe is given.
It’s been over a year-and-a-half since Ricoh announced the Pentax K-1 Mark II full-frame DSLR and over two-and-a-half years since its Pentax KP APS-C DSLR was announced. Rumors have been making their way through the grapevine that Pentax had something in store for 2019, but it seems we’ll have to wait until 2020 to see the new hardware.
