Gasp, that means the Ricoh engineers are actually working on the FF REPLACEMENT camera......................
I would not be surprised!!!

When the "leak" finally comes, it will either be a known leak, or someone, that if they were caught, they could deny it, or would know it would be hard to track who said what....and when THAT happens, the camera release would only be weeks/days away.

No one, if they know their job is at risk will ever say anything unless they have an ax to grind or are plain stupid.

Since the Ricoh/Pentax camera brain trust is not that deep, my guess, is the people in the know is probably less than 100.

Yup. Employees at large companies, unless they are very disgruntled, want their company to do well because it affects their bonuses and stock options. They may complain in the break room and at happy hour, but they ain't spilling the beans.

Don't expect too much from Ricoh except maybe the mid range body (K50 replacement).
Exactly this, there may be some announcements for future cameras and lenses, that is how I see it for now.

But seriously guys...if Pentax releases a FF, won't forum traffic come to a grinding halt since we'll no longer be able to argue about whether FF is coming? How then will I occupy my mornings when I'm supposed to be doing work, if not reading the same argument over and over again in every thread regardless of topic?

We will be able to argue over which of the Pentax full frame models is better, and whether the retro styling is awesome or irrelevant.

We'll discuss how the Pentax FF - albeit a very typical Pentax and a capable DSLR - is the wrong type of product, how DSLRs will die tomorrow and those brands which I shall not name here are doing so much better. And people will yell: "Pentax, you had one job to do: to make me a proper FF! You screwed up! So I'm selling everything and go m4/3!"

Finally, the long wait is over...

...we'll soon know the name of the new APS-C model with WiFi and tilting screen!

(Bet you didn't see that coming, LOL).

No finished model, no. That's been stated quite clearly IMO. Under glass maybe.
