Pentax Full Frame to Excel with FA Limiteds
Official Teaser Update
By PF Staff in Pentax Rumors on Jan 13, 2016
The official Pentax full frame DSLR teaser site was updated today with a new photo of the upcoming camera (shown above), three new sample photos, as well as a promotional paragraph relating to FA and legacy lens functionality.
The post is written to appeal to current owners of Pentax full-frame lenses. When mounted on the Pentax full frame camera, these lenses will offer a wider field of view than when mounted on an APS-C camera, since their entire image circle will be used. These lenses include the D FA, FA, F, A, M, and K series as well as a host of third-party offerings and screwmount lenses.
Note that the actual focal length of lenses used on the full frame does not change. If you are unclear on how sensor format affects field of view, see Crop Factor Unmasked.
