For 24 MP sensor? I bet USD1500-1700. If this camera will be real.
Well, if your bets are good, I'll gladly accept USD1500-1700 for a FF pentax.

I think Adam need to start a section in Rumors just for FF. That way when the true FF is coming the section will already be full
But also for peoples who are NOT interested in FF, we can skip it
That's a great idea. an FF section. so Pentax can easier gauge the interest (and users can also filter it out.)

FF will come next year. There will be other news on Photokina. My guess.

You guys are so behind the times. I have TONS of full frame Pentax cameras. They have names like ME Super, LX, MX, K1000....

24MP, high ISO similar to Nikon D3S
Will be first released in Germany


From an ID that has successfully predicted the release data of Pentax mirrorless and Nikon D800 before anywhere I had seen.
Let's see what will happen.
Oh no, I'm not fallin' for that a 287th time, you must think I'm a sucker... I'll believe it when I see it

Now that's a pretty original joke.

I don't know if I can handle a full-frame. I've been shooting APS-C for so long now, I forget what it looks like.

Ah, I'm a sucker, I already fell for it.

Heck this isn't the first time someone came up with the Photokina date.

I think it is coming when & what is the question? When is anyone’s guess but Pentax's entry into DLSR's was later than the competitions. What they offered to me was better value for the cost point, penta prism vrs penta mirror in the competition.
If history hold true Pentax will enter the FF DLSR market with a body that provides more bang for the buck but still in the prosummer category since pentax does not currently have or had much of the pro market in recent memory.
I have a lot of nice FF glass and would like to see pentax come out with one in that exact time frame since it contains my birthday and the wife already agreed to buy me one if available.

Shopkeeper: But it comes with a free frogurt!

Homer: That's good.

Shopkeeper: The frogurt is also cursed.

Homer: That's bad.

Shopkeeper: But you get your choice of toppings.

Been waiting since, oh, about 2001...and that's NO typo...

Sounds like a good start at PhotoKina. Still as my expectations are. Untill then we can all fill this thread.
Yeah, Photokina 2001...remember?


QuoteOriginally posted by Asahiflex Quote
Interesting and it was to be expected that such a camera would be announced at Photokina

Although I have yet to see a FF to materialize.
We're still waiting for the pro film camera to materialize...from about 1996 or so....

288th...it'll be pink and blue Kr's...with lenses that don't match.

Going back to sleep now...
