It is bigger than K-3 and not the same Style,but simmilar.
No design experiment.
Commence the bitching about it not being mirrorless!

Thank you, Asahi Man. I swore I wouldn't buy the first generation of any new electronics, but I want that FF bad and to reward Ricoh handsomely for finally getting it done!

I for one would like to hear about the K-3 successor, hopefully Pentax has this in mind for CP+
My guess is that is 6-12 months away; or possibly longer. There is no compelling reason for a new K-3 (K-3ii or K-2 )

Also: FF is not any-time soon a there are no FA lenses (or very few)

Good to hear.
Conventional body design works OK for me.

Before Christmas is too long, bring it before summer. LOL
What is the sensor, 36 Mpx, or 24 Mpx ? I hope the former.

To the PF folks who added the COUNTDOWN timer on the main page: Thanks, I think! It isn't for me right now, but comforting to know more options will be there when I feel the need.

This forum has always needed a smiley holding its breath with a blue face, for the 3624 posts over the years!
So here it is, better late than never..

Any guesses on the MSRP of the new FF? My bet is comparable to the D750 when it was first released: $2,300 USD-ish.

I'd bet it's easily north of $3k. Early adopters pay a premium, and the FF droolers on here will have to whip it out to finally see their unicorn.

*means SDM.
Pentax owns a Patent with a complete new SDM,Ring SDM.
The 70-200,the Telezoom and the Fullframe Body are ready and comming this year.
Everybody should have a nice christmas :-)
Both new lenses are NOT Tamron or Sigma copys.
Till end of next year we will get 6 - 8 fullframe lenses.
This week Pentax shows the new internal roadmaps for camera and lensline,the public roadmap will be to see next to CP+.
Pictures of the new body are out,but only for show in the offices.
Also at CP+ public will see more about the camera.
It is bigger than K-3 and not the same Style,but simmilar.
No design experiment.
Some with DC and other with SDM.
Best regards
Well, I guess I'm glad I managed to snag an FA 31 this past Christmas. Who knows how high its value is going to fly when FF is "confirmed confirmed".

I sure wish I had stocked up on some good F series glass though. I have been trying to see an F 70-210 on the marketplace for some time now, but perhaps I might just hang on to it.
