it's very good marketing method - to throw fake news as good news, as promise, but not official, of course...
No any responsibility for words.

Pentax Russia, Malta or Honduras should put in twitter or facebook - something like this the project is under development. see next year

And a lot of Pentaxian will enjoy waiting AGAIN and AGAIN.

If Ricoh want's to challenge Nikon they can. They have almost three times the revenue of Nikon and the inhouse competence. The question is if it's good business. I'm not sure. 90% of dslr sales are in the aps-c segment and smaller mirrorless. It's also here where the innovation takes place.

It's so considerate of Ricoh to give the whole Pentax is Doomed crowd a whole year to set their expectations too high (100 megapickles, ISO one zillion, $40 at Best Buy, etc..) so that they can be disappointed at the launch.
Jeez, it better be fully submersible down to 500 fathoms for that price!

I like all their new stuff, but I still think they're doomed...DOOMED!


Cheers,

Well hold on folks. For those of us that speak French it is actually just inference. On peut imaginer qu'il s'agit probablement........de 24mm par 36mm doesn't quite reconcile with an unsubstantiated 'official' recognition that full frame is on the way. What the article actually says is what everyone else has said - 'we think they look like full frame lenses'. That's quite different to being official. Surely though it would be fruitless for Ricoh top bods to dodge the questions this time when they are presented.
Methinks some French sales channel guys had a drop of the Burgundy and decided to troll, keep the 'under development' fishing trip active

Nothing official, and if FF comes a French facebook page probably isn't going to be the messenger.

I got tired of waiting for full-frame from Pentax, so last year I replaced all the original crop windows in my house with Full Frame Pella windows. Now, if I step back far enough, I can see my whole backyard without panning.

Pella rocks!

(I am in no way associated with Pella, I just like their full frame windows.)

Sorry, I thought this was the "This Old House" forum, not the "This Old Camera" forum.

Mods, feel free to delete all my posts, thanks.

I'm happy with my K-3 and the DA* and Limiteds. Steller performers. It is me that is the weak link for great pictures, not the technology.

Patience, Grasshopper.

Shoot with what you have, not with what you dream about.

Be thoughtful about selling your good lenses just yet.

Hmmmmm, the search continues as the tidbits are slowly fed to the masses.

As silly as the Sea Monkey ad is... still, it is nice to read it and see "appear" and "trained" and the real name of the animal and that the picture doesn't represent the real animal...

When advertising still had some shame and sense of not being totally misleading :^)

That and the Sea Mammy hips
I wonder how many grew up thinking those were just right
A generation of guys hunting high wasted girls with narrow shoulders...

Those numbers would likely change if Pentax introduced a FF.

Three times the competence and in-house revenue wouldn't be bad, either.

Please be considerate, think of the shrinkage factor of a post like this...
