Two new Pentax interchangeable lens cameras in the next few months

At a recent exhibition, a representative from Pentax Russia made this comment on their two upcoming cameras with interchangeable lenses:

"A company representative Anton Melnikov commented on plans to produce mirrorless Pentax cameras. The first camera based on APS-C sensor will be released until September this year. It is based on the K bayonet and maintains the proper optics Pentax, among whom are many of compact lenses, pancakes. It is worth noting that this is just a guess, and for certain information about plans for new models is not unknown, the exact specifications. Second camera is a compact camera with interchangeable lenses and the matrix 1 / 2, 33 inches."

Previous reports indicated that in addition to the Pentax NC-1, the second new camera will be a digital version of the Pentax Auto 110. It will be an interesting development if the Auto 110 Digital really has an APS-C sensor inside.

The Pentax NC-1 mirrorless camera will have a 14MP 1/2,33″ sensor with a 5.6x crop factor and HD h.264 video recording capabilities. The camera will be initially sold as one lens kit. Some of the rumored lenses are 8.5mm f/1.9 and 5-15mm f/2.8-4.5. The Pentax NC-1 will have also a flash hot shoe.

Few days ago Pentax displayed a new teaser of an upcoming camera at a Chinese trade show
