Ok good point... Then maybe some names are skipped because it might somehow mean something very different somewhere in the world? A meaning nobody wants attached to their product? Remember the K-Z debacle a few years back?
Dunno. Ford have the Kuga in Australia and Europe(?). I believe Kuga means plague in Croatian!

FF cannot be K-3. FF sensor-ed range of cameras will have a different prefix letter, to clearly differentiate them.
It will start with ... (sorry, cannot tell you).

It will start with U. (Unicorn.) And will not have the Pentax K mount, but the Ricoh U mount.

Now, will the U mount be a 'U bayonet', or a 'U screw' mount?

The fact you did not respond to me means that I was right with my names. At least partially ;-)

What ever led you to believe - or even hope - it would be a FF? Ricoh has told us over and over - FF is later.

If the FF Pentax uses a different mount, I for one will never purchase it! If I am forced to switch mounts, there are many options other than Pentax available, since I will have to start over on purchasing lenses.

Why are you two talking about a U mount? If you panic over something, at least take the time to read the original post and realize it was a joke, before you start spreading misinformation and threatening to leave the brand

People are already assuming the K-3 is real and I hope they are right.

OMG, it was a JOKE. Tomorrow we will see on photo rumors that Pentax is releasing a new FF mount, which will be picked up by RH, who will be quoted here and on DPR and then Photorumors will quote the post here that quoted RH as proof that the U-mount exists and issue a new post confirming the original rumor based on the confirmation here.

We really, really, seriously need to use /sarc tags................. Or /Joke tags...............
