God some people sprout and peddle crap here.... Not naming names. There will be no canon or aps-h sensor so forget it. The new sensor will be 16mp and it's most definitely a new sensor that isn't by Samscum. Forget a FF pentax till at least 2012 and don't expect an annoncements this year. The new model will be taking the k7 strengths and majorly improve on it's weaknesses. It won't cure cancer and it won't make you a better photographer.

Go enjoy your f#%^{Łg camera, take some photos and get life! I'm sick of so many of you know it all armchair critics and camera business, sensor experts.

Isn't that what APS-C does by using the "sweet spot" of an FF lens?
Some FF lenses have sweet spots that go to the edges of the image circle. APS-C sensors will never be able to capture those edges.

Somebody needs to take a chill pill. Sounds like you might need to take a bit of your own advice. Getting mad at the internet is very unproductive.

How do you know the new sensor will be 16mp? So if it's not from Samsung, I take it it's from Sony? So did Sony develop a brand new sensor that will appear in a Pentax body before any other body?

Thank you for the information. I think to know you had some leak from insiders, so I trust you on that points.
Now at least I can think without any regret about my new combo made of a Canon 5D (II or III) and some awesome L lenses.
Pentax story was a short but nice one for me. I will miss Pentax ergonomics. But I cannot stand anymore with APS-C sensors. And in a way, it is better that they do not release FF soon, I would have wonder many nights if I switch to Canon or stick to Pentax and spend a lot of money for professional grade lenses, without any clue about the possibility to get new FF bodies during the next years.
PS: what about your feeling a few weeks ago, when you said you were astonished by the quality of your friend's 5DII (and more generaly FF) and were expecting the same from Pentax? The effect is already over?

I still love ff and the image quality of the 5d. However it occupies a segment and price point and when you weigh it agai st apsc the advantages aren't all that huge, yes bigger I've and better low light performance, however withe the advances in sensor tech this is more and more negated.

On this forum I'm just sick to death of all the armchair critics and experts. Half would would hail to be claim they are experts in areas of Marketing, engineering, camera design, supply chai , pentax politics, Hoya financials, etc. I mean with this pool of expertise you could start your own camera company....

Really? They've said they're out of the DSLR business. So it's a new camera in the NX series then.

the point is,nikon told they bring a more pix sensor only,when it will have the same noise quality like D300.and k-x is actually better than nikon in low noise.but i missed the maximum resolution for my * lenses.so,maybe the new sensor is one for all?hope so!
