As we turn the corner into 2023, the emerging landscape for photography seems split between mirrorless maximalism, exemplified in the fourth-quarter releases of the FUJIFILM X-T5 and Hasselblad X2D 100C, and the triumphant resurgence of film that has culminated in Leica's re-release of its iconic M6 and an eleventh-hour announcement of an exploratory film camera project from RICOH Imaging's Pentax brand. It's more than a little strange that only two months earlier, Pentax announced its newest camera, the

To see just how much of an upgrade the latest Latitude is, we took it for a week-long test drive.
