This thread almost seems like an Internet case of road rage. Well done.

A mirrorless FF camera would be nice, but I hope Pentax comes out with a genuine standard DSLR first.

Don't get overheated for my creative idea. I almost never pay attention to Pentax-bashing comments since they mostly are not word investing the time.

If someone like the Olympus OM-D M5 then that is fine since it is a nice camera. It does have a small sensor and a direction I'm not going into. When you want to make some serious action pictures then you will find out very quickly that you better buy an Olympus E-5 instead of this wonderfull designed micro 4/3th camera. So it comes with limitations.

The K-01 is a nice camera (that surely has technical limitations compared to a full functional dslr) that is capable for making excellent images and has a design that is not appealing for everyone. I have a yellow K-01 and I like it. So I can think of turning this camera into a full frame model that would be the top tier mirrorless camera for Pentax (a very nice line of Q, K-01 and K-11). For those who want a mirror coming with their camera Pentax does offer nice camera's like K-5, upcoming K-30, hopefully a nice FF K-mount dslr and a 645D for pro's.

And 5 years from now all these camera's will all be replaced by new models that have far more superior image quality and technics inside.

If a FF K-11 mirrorless camera has a high quality EVF and is significantly smaller and lighter than other FF cameras and is attractively priced, I expect that it would be a great success. But those are big "ifs".

OK. I think we're done here. The thread had worn itself out some time ago with nothing useful to contribute to the plethora of existing discussions on a future Pentax FF camera.
