They are still using the ol' but good 16mp sensor.

At least somewhat understandable, they can cater for a niche few other brands cover (e.g. those people who also like to give colored shells to their mobile phones).   In contrast to the "Hasselblad shell" Nex camera which is more of a joke I think.

Hi,

    Yes, Pentax have now  seven cameras with the same (almost he same sensor).  The K30, K50, K500, K5, K5II : K5IIs  and maybe there's a few  K01s  still on the shelves. It's a great sensor the Sony, low noise, but I would like Pentax to sort out the easily saturating reds problem.

 

  Hands on review already at ephotozone of the K500 and Q7,

P.S. Pentax are looking for a Kx replacement in the K500, it was their biggest seller,maybe they've found it with this one!
