Expecting to wake up tomorrow with pics and specs on the front page and lots of disgruntled users moaning and threatening to jump ship.
Such is the Pentax circus which we live in.
LOL! This is exactly what Ricoh-land is like too. I went over to the DPR Ricoh Forum earlier today and read post after post of the same, much wailing and gnashing of teeth. We're all doomed!

Meanwhile, in the lab, engineers are pulling out their hairs screaming: "There's no pleasing these people!"

Now that's just fantasy, most engineers are completely unaware of the end-user. Wait, no that's designers....sorry, never mind.

There was a comment on the FB Pentax Croatia page on monday made by a company representative that suggested there won't be a FF revealed. Fans were trying to get more information from the representative and he commented that he has to warn us that the most expected product won't arrive this fall but there are interesting products to be announced.
That's some interesting wording: "the most expected product" (at least he admitted it's expected) and "won't arrive this fall" (almost implies that it will arrive at some point, like next spring). Obviously this isn't reliable, but at least his response wasn't the typical, "no FF is planned for release".

Pentax has been doomed by Pentaxians ever since the *istD was followed by the *istDs...

Pentax, the rodent, the pest-weed of cameras.... Doomed and D@mned, and still here

I just really hope they don't make these announcements 1 hour after the iphone5 announcement.

link?
hard to show direct link... it's the private page of PR manager of Pentax Russia
Maria Lenkina

she said this today

But...it seems to me - 645D2 will be announced, but it will be launched only next year.
No FF official announcement this year. Maybe some official words about prototype...

Sounds as if you're marching to the land of Mordor. Where the shadows lie .....

Of course you can bring up the shadows very nicely in PP so it's not quite as scary as once thought.

So, do we hold our breath or ?
