So you hired that guy in the Opel Manta then? You know, the one with the white socks and slippers, the training pants, Puma T-shirt, and the baseball cap on backwards?
I didn't mean my Financial Advisor. I drive a Honda.

The point is to know what you need and want, spend only what you must to get it, avoid waste on appearances, then invest the balance in - say - lenses.

That's almost exactly what I said. Anything saved on cosmetics and not useful durability is better spent on lenses. Remember the more then excellent test images from the cheap & flimsy Sony A3000 with the fantastic lens.

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.

Strange to make a FF body with a new mount.
So what to do with my KA lens??

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.
