Pentax Full Frame to Support All K-mount Lenses
Teaser web site updated
By PF Staff in Pentax Rumors on Dec 11, 2015
The official Pentax Full Frame DSLR teaser site was updated today with a paragraph stating that "all K-mount lenses are compatible" with the upcoming camera. The paragraph references the FA lens series and even includes two sample photos taken with FA* lenses on a prototype— the first ever photos from this camera to be published. The camera will also offer a crop mode so that DA lenses can be used if desired.
Could production of select FA-series lenses be re-started to support the launch of the full frame?
While detailed specifications of the full frame remain unknown, a prototype model recently on display at Salon de la Photo in Paris revealed that the camera is likely to feature Wi-Fi, built-in GPS, an articulating LCD screen, and plenty of dedicated dials and buttons. The camera is slated for a Spring, 2016 debut and we expect to learn much more about it at the upcoming CP+ trade show in Tokyo.
