So at this time the rumors from different sources are getting more numerous and at least partly begin to support each other. So, provided that we're not taken for a ride, it seems that the new K-7 replacement will use a new 16 mp Sony APS-C sensor which has a much improved high ISO. Also, the AF will probably be improved and I guess there will be AF for video as well like the rumors say new Sony DSLRs will have. . . . . . .

Obviously no FF in near future, which is a major disappointment to many. . . . . .
I'm too lazy to read everything on new models on this and similar threads, but of all the stuff I have seen, this sounds the most rational, emr - and I'd likely buy this camera, relegating my K20D to backup status.

I also remain skeptical about an FF from Pentax anytime soon, and my interest has remained tepid, at most. However, I have a nice collection of legacy lenses (all bought new), including a K28/2, FA50/1.4, A* 85/1.4, M135/3.5 and K300/4, which would be fun to put back into action on a FF body. For me to foot the bill, however, the camera would have to have the following characteristics:

1) Relatively cheap - about 1500 bucks (US), certainly no more than $2000; I simply don't want FF badly enough to write a bigger check.

2) Reasonably small - say about like a K20D; I'd have little interest in something like the gargantua the competition produces.

3) Accurate and consistent exposure for M and K lenses throughout the f-stop range rather than the silly behavior of my K10/20 in this regard.

4) A seamless, convenient way to utilize my DA lenses in some sort of cropped mode, preferably without a clumsy adaptor to fool with.

5) Pentax will have to introduce at least a modest collection of FF lenses to suppliment the FA Limiteds and the two macros when the body begins shipping.

Heck, I don't know if all this is even possible, but . . . hey . . . . . . if Pentax could do this, I might fork over the cash.
