Rumor: Pentax FF Sept 18-23, 2012

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.

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.

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

It's not new rumor. Pentax, 24 MP and FF - flying around rumor during 2011 year. I've heard it before. I hope the price will be low. USD1500.

I think the rumor should be interpreted as "full frame will be released sometime between 2018 and 2023".

- Journalist: can we expect an Pentax FF in the near future?
- Pentax rep: No. Not now, not later, not at all.
- Journalist: Should this be understood as "well, we are thinking of making one very soon"?
- Pentax rep: No, absolutely not. We have a firm decision to stay out of the FF market.
- Journalist: How should we interpret this?
- Pentax rep: I cannot speak out clearer than I have.
- Forum rumor: A Pentax FF is soon to be announced!

I just can't believe how we people keep the hope alive. Year after year Pentax users have hoped, prayed, begged for a FF Pentax. And year after year the company has been denying any plans. In stead what they have been doing is releasing APS-C only lenses, the Q with a microscopic sensor and latest the APS-C mirrorless. And every time some Pentax exec breaths out, us in the faith take it as a definite sign that the long-awaited FF is finally coming.

Stop. It is not coming. Ricoh or not.

USD 1500 seems a little bit too low for an FF. I'm willing to accept sub-3000, maybe $2400.

For 24 MP sensor? I bet USD1500-1700. If this camera will be real.
