Sorry but I think most of you guys really have a problem somehow, seeing your reactions.

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.
Mirrorless are not DSLRs.

Its important to look at not where sales are now, but where they are trending... and it seems like FF is potentially an area of more growth than APS-C.

This is spreading all over.. now on PhotoRumors:
Ricoh confirms the Pentax full frame camera is coming in 2015 | Photo Rumors

I sure hope it is true.. otherwise it will be even worse than before.

Steve, I thought (and correct me if I am wrong) the failure in the MZ-D was primarily (or may be partly) due to the failure of the Philips sensor at that time; why they chose that sensor, don't know?
Nah.. It was due to the cost. same chip done right on Contax ND.. but Contax is no longer a company.

Why do I have the feeling that French will now be blamed for the doom of Pentax!?
Please forgive me, but I just had to.

"I just told them the full frame was under development!"

SO if the 16-85 is announced as an FF lens... that would be a heck of a kit lens. Someone go and stick that on their A7r and find out for us.

The 16-85 is already labled as DA so I think we can be certain its an APS-C lens

And on Mirrorless Rumors too: they are imagining Ricoh's 24x36 camera will be a mirrorless one

Ricoh confirms they will launch a Full Frame camera in 2015! | Mirrorless Rumors

I am looking forward to someone launching a new thread here, explaining Ricoh will launch a 24x36 mirrorless camera in 2015

If it were published on Leica Rumors, they would announce it as a new GXR module with a M Mount

DA 35 2.4, for example, mind you it's soft on the edges on APS-c , imagine what they'd be like on FF.

It wouldn't surprise if full frame comes next year, but I don't really see this an official announcement. I also don't believe that everyone will be happy when it comes. The mirrorless folks will be upset because it keeps the k mount and doesn't include an EVF, which is the wave of the future. More people will be upset because it is priced in the 2500 dollar range and spec-ed closer to a D810 than a 6D.

Oh well, there wouldn't be a forum here without sour grapes, would there?
