I fully expect to see it at CP+. It will be white, have a mane and tail, and have a log horn sticking out of its forehead.
Ahh a mythical beast it is

They might show the camera they started to leak some days back, but I don't expect to see any FF yet.

That's probably never gonna happened. That hybrid viewfinder is complicated and expensive for production and not so usable on interchangable lens camera. Only huge success of X-Pro1 could be a reason for X-Pro2 production, but it is obviously not so successful.

It could be the beast that is in revelation and Pentax will make you worship it. And its name will be 666

No idea, but I'm not to optimistic at the moment.

Is anyone planning to go to CP+? I'll go to it if my company doesn't decide to send me on a business trip, which is what happened last year.

FF or not, I got mine already... got tired of waiting...
I'm curious about lenses... but not much to be honest. What I am curious about is that "new" camera... hopefully they can reveal it as almost ready to go into production. Is seems to have all the right elements and it will be nice to see it on the market asap (unlike some distant "sample" FF they use to have... ).

I think that many people that wanted FF already got one by getting an A7 or Canikon ones... Sad for Pentax i guess.

They might win some people back.

A FF Pentax will start looking great, especially for people that like primes. All of a sudden the FA31, 43, 77 aren't expensive anymore, comparing with similar quality FF designs from other companies. Especially if they decide to revamp the lenses with HD coatings which will get rid of the CA problems and improve contrast and flare control.

It is sad... and understandable considering what Pentax had to go through for the past years.
What bogs me is that they are not open and honest about it, they just leave you hanging in there, hopping for "coming soon".

Now is the time for FF.

Given what the USD is doing versus the Yen and Euro any Japanese or European company that makes something Americans buy and has a strong USA retail and distribution marketing team in place should have field-day sales for new products in the coming couple of years.

Oh. Wait.
