Last week, Ricoh revealed that it would be releasing a new flagship Pentax APS-C DLSR in 2020, but they shared very few details and only one low-resolution photo of the upcoming camera. Fortunately, photographer Niels Kemp was at the Pentax 100 Years of History event in The Netherlands, and sent us a few first-look photos.

Pentax fans haven’t had much to celebrate lately. First, Sigma announced that it would no longer be making Pentax K-Mount lenses in order to focus more resources on Mirrorless cameras; then, Ricoh confirmed it would not be launching any new cameras in the Fall of 2019.

According to a report over on Sony Alpha Rumors, the Pentax full frame DSLR will feature none other than a Sony sensor. To be more specific, the camera is expected to feature the same 36MP sensor found in the current Nikon D810 and Sony A7R. It is a sensor that we know is capable of good things as results from the D810 and A7R prove that.
