Me too. I have a GXR which I bought primarily to use with my Leica lenses but I am a longstanding Pentax user and still have a K-5 DSLR and a fair number of lenses including some of the very compact but high quality DA Limited lenses.Hmm... GXR module that takes Pentax lenses? Now thats something I *would* be interested in. No idea if its even possible though.
MMmmmm... GXR with a Kmount module and the 21/40/70mm pancakes. Nice. Likely? Probably notMe too.

A Pentax KA2 mount module would be quite difficult and expensive to make if it provided AF with both screw drive and SDM but as Ricoh now own Pentax they have access to all the Pentax technology and patents so it should be possible. It would at a stroke provide the GXR with a full range of compact primes (the Limited series) and also zooms though they might look rather incongruously large in relation to the compact GXR body.
Is that definite??? I would buy a GXR in a heartbeat if it were. I love my GRD3, and I love how much flexibility of setup it has, I imagine the GXR is much the same. I've even been considering selling the XZ (oh horror and after I have waxed so lyrical about it) and the GRD3, in favour of a GXR with the 24-72mm 1/1.7 sensor module. That, plus a K-mount module... wow.Just saw in amateur photographer magazine this week that ricoh/pentax are bringing out a pentax module for the ricoh GXR . I would definitly be interested as I have a lot of pentax lenses which I used on my GF1 and they were sharper than the panasonic lenses.
