Pentax about to announce a mirrorless system with sensors of the same size of Four Thirds sensors?

Share

What a rumor. Pentax is about to announce a new mirrorless system which will de facto be the digital version of the Pentax Auto 110 system. Why should we care about that? The Auto 110 system had a frame size of 13 × 17 mm (0.51 × 0.67 in) which is almost exactly the frame size of (Micro-) Four Thirds sensor (13 × 17.3 mm). Now that part is just speculation. Does it not make more sense for Pentax to join the Micro Four Thirds world instead of making their own “Four-Thirds” system? That’s probably wishful thinking and never going to happen. Anyway we will know soon if those rumors are correct. The digital Auto 110 system will be announced in March.
