Pentax Full Frame Official Teaser
Launch date posted on Pentax.com
By PF Staff in Pentax Announcements on Sep 18, 2015
A teaser along with the launch date for the Pentax full frame DSLR has just been posted by Ricoh Imaging on Pentax.com. The simple site features an outline of the camera along with an indication that the camera will make its debut in the Spring of 2016.
While no press release has (yet) accompanied this teaser, the suggested release date is later than what was anticipated by many fans, and represents a delay beyond the original launch estimate.
Four background teaser images were found on the site. Click on any thumbnail to enlarge:
At CP+ 2015, a 3D-printed prototype of the whole camera was on display:
The prior press release indicated "market launch by the end of 2015".
Still, we are getting closer and closer to the launch of this game-changing camera, at least for current Pentax K-mount system owners. Have your say— are you happy that we now have a clearer idea of when the camera will be out, or more disappointed due to the delay? Will the Pentax FF become a core part of your kit when it is released? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
