Another one from the PentaxForum - this is how Pentax Imaging Technical Support answered to an email question about a possible EVIL camera from Pentax:
"Thank you for contacting Pentax.
As mirror-less camera categories are showing strong growth, we too are examining the possibility of producing this type of camera. And if we are to release such products, we believe that the camera should be a unique and distinctive model.
At this point PENTAX does not have a fixed plan for the release schedule, specifications, or price information.
Pentax Imaging Technical Support"
The words "unique" and "distinctive" are an interesting description - Pentax made also some comments in the past that their mirrorless camera will be different:
“It’s quite clear that we don’t want to be seen as the same as everyone else. We would go down a different route. We are looking to grow. We want to grow. It’s going to be an exciting year. I think everybody will see a change in Pentax.”
