Pentax Full Frame Facebook page

Well.... someone set this up in hope Pentax would listen.
I guess is a good way to show Ricoh/Pentax what Pentax fans around the globe wants....

Pentax Full Frame | Facebook

Don't bash Facebook.... it can gain some traction, you never know.

I can't blame Lee for making this information visible for all in this distinctive thread instead of letting it drown in that FF-monster discussion.

Google plus is more or less a failure if you ask me, but here you go:

The photographic community on G+ is 100x what it is on Facebook. Looking for friend from high school, the Facebook is king, but for professional contact G+ is much better. I have had Pentax Forums circled on G+ since you guys put a profile up.

You guys are not putting much effort into G+. There are a couple of Pentax users on G+ with pretty big a following. One with over 150K people following his work. If you guys are not getting any traffic it is not because of G+.

Do you have a link to the 150K-follower pentaxian?

Any exposure is good. FB should do a good job at getting the word out.
No doubt Pentax is listening.,..

Me too. No FB for me.

The idea may backfire anyhow. If you only get <1000 people or some other miniscule number liking it (or whatever FB people do), there goes any compelling argument for FF.

So when Pentax FF is finally announced, the names on the Facebook page will be traced down one by one and called to provide proof that they bought one?
GREAT IDEA

Sorry to say, but I'm quite a skeptic regarding how Pentax (and any large corporate entity) responds to such things.
I do have my fingers crossed for better things to come from Pentax of course

If there were a pre-production order pledge for a FF K-mount camera, I'd be on it.
And here I was thinking the K-5 would be the last camera I'd ever want...
