Hehe..I've just started to understand how a pentaxian works and think I think 2015 be a rollercoaster of fun both ways for us!

I also think it is going to be a great year. Think it is time to see the bank manager going to need it.

Kenneth, I beleive you (even if I could not check your identity). Because your statements largely coincide with my business partner's statement. As I said a few days ago in a phone conversation he used a present tense "Pentax is releasing fullframe" but I cannot verify wednesday/thursday or any other exact date as a release date. Probably because he is not related to Ricoh marketing in any way. I hope that you are right, cant wait thursday.
It's not a big secret that Pentax is releasing a FF anymore, but they will release things in the right order. They will release a few thing before the FF is dropped. I really dont know the exact date for the FF, yet..But i know how it looks We'll start on wednesday/thursday, then step by step during 2015. It will be a good year for us!

Its not a FF on wednesday, but as you said, it will end speculations

Is it safe to say that basing on what you said above, there will be no FF this Wednesday?

This will make a lot of people cry.

Clearly, if I get what is being hinted at here, we should get (at least announced) new FF lenses, probably new range (or reuse DFA name) which means FF since Pentax (part those old DFA macros) never used an FF nomenclature even though the lens was FF compatible.
I expect FF body prototype under glass + 70-200 + 150-350 + new APS-C cam.

It may already been posted around here somewhere, but I couldn't find it yet. Here's funny little bit about the current optimism amongst us Pentaxians:

OK thanks Kenspo. My prediction would be that those lenses showed at CES are FF lenses and a new mid-range APSC as they've shown. I'll also go with thibs, FF inder the glass.

All I want to know is should I put my Sigma 50-500mm OS up for sale (bearing in mind it is my most used lens at airshows and suchlike). .. or do I need to hang on to it a bit longer?

Ooh, a retro Aspc body....would be nice, is it???

I reckon it'd probably be just a press conference of what we've already seen at CES tbh.

Not bad at all, but their previous "how low can you go" article about confirmation of Pentax Q2 full 1" frame camera was hilarious from first to last word.
Almost like Monty Python.

Short answer Yes Mike


If you are willing to pay for the Pentax.

Always willing to pay for Pentax if it's a worthwhile purchase.

Anyway, thanks for that, I don't feel so bad about already selling my Sigma 100-300mm f4 now.


Anyone want to buy a Sigma 50-500mm OS?

suddenly a lot of people know something that's coming. If this is true, then Ricoh really did bring unprecedented change to Pentax this year.

Now what I should focus better on is to improve my photography and connections so I could be like one of these guys.. Getting to use gear for free and all that...

That line confirms many fears of the pricing of the future product.
