Anyway, if a couple of them are out in the field that's not important. What is important is the economic justifying release (and what happens to the APS-C line, including the excellent DA primes which are over-priced in a FF world).
I'd like to think that the K5IIs is a good stopgap to give Ricoh the time needed for a revamp for the lineup. IMO, FF isn't an optimum format for extreme telephotos, hence the DA560 being geared for APS-C. I do shoot FF film on my telephoto gear, but rarely because of the loss of the crop. Ideally, I'd like to have a K5IIs for my tele work FF for the rest.

To your point about the DA primes being over priced....perhaps this is an opportunity for Pentax to introduce a new all metal weather sealed premium line of lenses.....much like the 100 macro released a few years ago.

For a while I wasn't sure whether that Svitek kid is a troll or an idiot. He's obviously both. How about giving this crap finally a rest?

I said it before in another thread.

Many people are very passionate about this full frame thing, and seem to have an interest in expending huge amounts of time and resources discussing and arguing about it.

Sheesh!

I have better things to do with my time, like take pictures, sort through and develop the good ones, print some of those, and post a few too.

Oh, yeah, and I have to squeeze work in there somewhere too, 'cause I need money for my bad photography habit. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Focusing on the date issue to deflect attention from his own role in the kerfluffle.

Also, body language. Always glaring out the windows like someone on the run, looking for the "real culprit."

If you follow a bit Pentax you should know and imagine that one of the first that will allow to test a pentax FF will be Kerrick James or other professional photographers, maybe in japan too, and not an anonymous young boy from Canada.

Agree 100% on this

He is obviously just a kid who scammed his way into some attention found it was the wrong kind and tried to backpeddal while attempting to put blame away from himself, while looking even more stupid in the proccess.

What a pathetic 15 minutes.

Answer his question!

Also, the tidbit about the K-3 coming out in the fall is correct
This is a desperate attempt by this kid to try and pass the buck for doing crappy things in public (spreading spurious rumors) and not being willing to be held to account for it.

I was amongst those that posted that a certain person on google+ was posting about testing a K-3, in a now closed thread. Now, I didn't just stumble across this his google+ page. Mike/Milan Svitek had posted in the comments on Photorumors.com about testing the K-3. That's how I came across this name, which I then googled and then found this google+ account. Don't know how google+ works, but it is certainly not a private account.

So, this line about checking sources, when he was the one that initiated contact with PR, nevermind subsequently leading on many other people, is utter nonsense.

His outrage is totally laughable and lacking in any principles. After spreading rumours now he's outraged about someone else doing the exact same thing, trying to cover up his own lousy activities. Geez. Grow up already.

I'm glad to to be a member of a reasonably level-headed forum, where everyone tries to be factual in our reporting, and the folks here generally don't try to incite some kind of more serious hate/cyberbullying campaign. Not sure about other forums. Anyhow I hope he's learned a lesson and can integrate back into the on-line photo community at large. It won't be easy, this will probably follow him around for a while.
