Dedicated AF point selection joystick/dial.
Having dual-function 4-way controller is probably the most annoying ergonomics feature in Pentax. Please make it possible to choose focus point at any time, without searching for a switch button or holding 'ok' on lower end cameras.

I also would like to see an on-board flash and hot shoe, not only as a flash master, but for fill-flash (which is what I mostly use the onboard flash for on my K-3). This is handy when I'm on travel or outside and didn't bring my flash along.

Does Ricoh have any plans to make an equivalent WR lens of 16-85mm in FF size ?
Eg. 28-135mm FF ?
Also, I notice that all new lenses are KAF3 mount. Are they all to be DC motor, or are any to be SDM ?

- Manual Crop Mode (let us crop on FF lenses)
- Thetering with USB3 on Lightroom
- Better and faster Autofocus
- Sensor TiltShift
- Zebra or colored pattern (user choice's) on focus peaking
- A small joystick or thumbstick to select focus point

@Ricoh_Martha Here is my wish list for new FF DSLR...
Raise X-sync to 1/250s
Open to third party radio triggers with their P-TTL technology and not let them do reverse engineering in order to manufacturer capable wireless radio triggers with HSS (P-TTL in addition would be nice)
FF sensor size should have a minimum of 36mpx, ideally 44mpx+ without lowpass filter
ISO Sensitivity 50-160000
More wide spread of AF points (cross type)
-3 or better brightness range at ISO50, same for EV
Better implementation of AF assist light (maybe there is a way to set the point in the menu when AF assist light will start)
Bring out new focusing screens for manual focus lenses to be used on new FF camera (expand this to APS-C range too)
WiFi with tethering capability implemented
Better dynamic range then 12 f-stops
Anything else Pentax did already right... should stick with K-1 name...

We have not seen many real specs yet.....probably will hear next week. For me, on board flash is important. I regularly use my on board as fill flash and also as an external trigger so becasue of this, I hope that Pentax has an on board flash for the FF....which I like and hope will be the K-F1

In order to differentiate yourself from the crowd, do make an unique body. Don't follow the crowd, there is simply no point to buy a Pentax if the new body is to be Canon or Nikon alike. Just do it!
