I would suggest to the admin, kick kenspo out of Pentaxforum if what he said turn out to be BS.

We have heard enough of these 'connected to Ricoh story' over the years. Remember that kid from Germany who said he is field testing a Pentax FF?.. enough is enough.

How about we play the did not game?
You tells us what it will happen and just add a "Pentax did not confirm..." in front of it
Like: "Pentax did not confirm FF this year"... etc...

Hehe..as i have said earlier, i dont know anything about earlier stuff. I signed for Ricoh/Pentax for about 1 year ago. i have 100% sponsordeal with Pentax. Same with Lexar and Lowepro. Do you think Pentax would have persuaded to switch over from Nikon and invested so much money in me if i was not serious?

Then you don't remember the dude in Canada a couple years ago who said he had a pre-production Pentax FF and then it turned out that he fabricated the whole thing "as a joke" for his friends...

And since when did Pentax distribute corporate sponsorships left and right? I can think of...maybe two confirmed Pentax pros. So yeah--I hope you're right for the sake of those who want Pentax FF, but let's just say I'll believe it when I see it.

Pentax have the mid-level camera to reveal, it was under glass at CES, they might hint at FF coming but I would not expect anything to come of it until at least 12-18months from now if at all, they don't have the lens line up yet, unless they rely on some third paty lenses, there seems to be one from Tamron http://www.camerasdirect.com.au/tamron-sp-24-70mm-f-2-8-di-vc-usd-for-pentax..._store=default It has VC maybe the FF mythical beast will have SR in lens instead of in body, I'm not sure how old that lens is but seemed to pop up on their list where there wasn't one previously. Pentax might have a 70-200 in the works but they need a stack of prime lenses with HD, maybe they will hint at those this year?
What I would definitely hope to expect is some real information on a K-3 successor, some of the new stuff from the mid-level up-commer and prospective K-3 might make it into the FF dev-branch. Expect nothing and what comes will be a treat

I can understand the skepticism when i look into what have been promised or said earlier years. But all i know now, is what Ricoh/Pentax has told me the last year or so. I have reported to them what i read here As Pentax them self say, its new times now, after Ricoh came in the picture. I like Pentax, i like their plans and visions for the future..THAT was the main reason for me, to agree deal and jump ships.

I made the same error upthread.

Made the same 'edit,' too. It's just proof that we've been burned by the likes of our Canadian blogger, Wendy B and some clickbait dude in China who I won't name - we've been burned far too often.

This time I have a different gut feeling.
