With the Ricoh acquisition of Pentax, I would like to see a P10 or S10 module that is a Pentax Q module with the Pentax Q lens mount and supporting auto focus.
The Pentax Q lens features a Auto Focus motor installed assures smooth, quiet focusing operation. The Pentax Q lens shutter mechanism allows the Pentax Q built-in auto flash to be synchronized to the camera’s top shutter speed of 1/2000 second (or 1/250 second when using an accessory flash unit). This Pentax Q lens is also equipped with a built-in ND (neutral density) filter for open aperture shooting at bright locations or when using slower shutter speeds.

With four extra-low-dispersion and low-refractive aspherical optical elements, the new Pentax Q lens offers exceptional picture rendition while effectively reducing chromatic aberration to a minimum over the entire zoom range. The Pentax Q Standard Zoom lens features a minimum focusing distance of 11.8 inches (30CM) at all focal lengths for close-up macro photography. The Pentax Q lens incorporates the special optical glass elements and Pentax exclusive lens coating technology for beautifully defined, high quality photos hat are sharp and high contrast even to the edges.
