The Af module (Safox XI) looks like a direct transplant from the K3 which is a bit disappointing, I was hopping for a new module with better performance to bridge the gap from the big dogs. Here's to hoping for better coverage of those 27 points at least....

It essentially looks like a K-3 with a flippy screen and FF sensor.. slightly taller hump for the mirror and thus no flash.... Nice size for a FF body.

Sorta like most everyone on this forum has been requesting since........... Well since the k-3 came out I guess.......

Kinda weird with all the Ricoh releases that have had everyone scratching their heads, now we get one that is bang on to what was asked for........ Maybe we have to shut up or put up on this one.

A K-3 and the mockup. Matched sizes based on the hot shoe.

To me the new full-frame looks surprisingly compact.

From the same link, the image of the transparent K-S2 with a transparent flash and cut-away lens is very nice.

I think they have done, so far, a great job in keeping the FF size down, maybe similar to K-3 or a smidgen bigger, not much in it.

I've said it for a long time, that they would make it close to the K-3 look. Perfect!

I don't see a dedicated AF-point selector... I was really hoping for that one.
