If Pentax can get access to a ready supply of sensors they are ready to make a high quality, somewhat different (unique) FF camera at a compelling price point. But they can't get the sensors (Nikon controls theirs, Sony controls theirs and Canon actively prevents others access).

If they could get sensors they would make an interesting camera that that would omit ONE feature that each user here wants and include ONE feature that each here user doesn't want. By the time the camera actually appeared it would have been panned and dismissed as an anachronism by each potential user here, each for his own individual reasons.

I frankly don't even care. I like Pentax. I have a K-01 on the way. I can hold it and shoot MF with it and I'll enjoy it. And when I need them I have a dSLR and film cameras.

I'll just buy lenses until I'm broke.

Me: Can I go now?






HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Fantastic! Pretty much sums up my feelings!

I am pledging from this moment not till post to another FF thread before Photokina - WHO'S WITH ME?

As this is the last one, I do hope Pentax take their time and knock it out of the ball park.
Have the key lenses to go at time of release 24-80 2.8, 80-200 2.8 and perhaps a new flash and flash system.

If they do a small FF in K5 size It wouldn't suprise me if we see smaller more affordable F4 lenses instead although that would effect the shallow DOF.

Full frame be damned. I'm hoping for a large format - 8 x 10, gigapixel sensor, brand-new lens mount for which there are no existing lenses. Only $99,000.

Full-frame or not, I predict that Pentax will announce cameras this year. I am willing to bet my left kidney on that one.

For 24 MP sensor? I bet USD1500-1700. If this camera will be real.
what does the number of pixels have to do with pricing?

Is your left kidney still with you or it is already with somebody else?

When I read "Will be first released in Germany" I immediately thought "well, ok, this is bullshit!".

My only regret is by sharing my observation this thread will now keep showing up towards the top of a "my posts" search if it stays alive. :ugh:

Didn't some individual get one of those fabricated?
Don't remember the mega-pixels, but I think it was 8x10 for like $100,000 for the sensor.
