    Jul 3, 2010 (Japan), a site with a good track record on Micro 4/3 rumors, is citing sources that Pentax will be announcing a new interchangeable-lens system on June 23 in Japan.

    According to the Google-translated post, the announcement will involve a "digital SLR camera with interchangeable lenses of the world's smallest and lightest".

    I'm looking forward to seeing what they introduce!

    Well, my likely to be unfulfilled wish would be something with a sensor MFT or better in size, able to use Pentax's primes.

    Im crossing my fingers here as well, that would be great..
    And not too small, the Sony NEX is unusable for me, I have average hands but clumsy fingers..

    I hope this isn't the 5.6x crop factor mirrorless Pentax, but the APS-C one. In fact, I hope all those rumours of a 5.6x crop mirrorless Pentax are fake, fake, FAKE. I like Pentax too much :wink:
