OH MY GOSH! 645D mirrorless AND a FF camera!?! The "Head" of the company himself came up with these ideas! Wow!

Pentax Said R&D is going on for Full Frame and 645D mirrorless
All upcoming “DSLRs” of Pentax will have 100% field of view coverage, even for entry level models;
The FF and 645D mirrorless is only the personal thinking of the Head himself!

5 minutes ago under Ricoh it said "B&W dedicated compact" and now it says the bit about Pentax lens units...

Hope the news is true and that Pentax has found a good home under the Ricoh banner. The K-01 and lens roadmap make me hopeful.
