The latest images show the body to be rather larger in relation to the FA 31 than the initial leaked image portrayed. I hope they streamline that body some more because it looks like a tank.

I always thought the early estimates of size were optimistic because the product shots were obviously made with a very wide angle lens - making the body look much smaller relative to the FA31. These new images give a much more realistic impression. It will be small by full frame standards, but clearly bigger than the K-3.

Yes, looks rather big. I'll have to buy another camera bag for this monster.

Let's see some comparisons with the MZ-D (or other MZ film cameras) and also the 645D/Z.

I don't know if that size is too much compared to K-3. My hands are not so big and K-3 seems jus little to small for me. So this is good.

Looking like a tank does open several doors to its naming. The type 97 Chi-Ha was Japans most used tank during WWII.

It's probably blasphemy, but I would certainly buy this FF body in the orange/grey combination of KS2.

Top of full frame mockup. The lens and hot shoe look like the only real pieces, and the hot shoe looks small on that body.
Love that they did a 31 LTD as the example lens!

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 have always wondered how they do those cutaways so cleanly, does anyone know?

It will come in colors. Camo for those who want the tank look, pink for everyone else

I remember seeing a programme on TV where they were having various things cut in half using some kind of high-speed saw, including quite delicate things. They showed a workshop where you could bring anything in to be cut in half for 5,000 yen.

I really like what RP is doing on design front. LEDs, colors, even this..... makes their stuff stand out.
Though I'm by accident rather boring kind of guy (my car, PC, monitors, phone and cameras are black ) I wouldn't mind getting a orange/gray K-S2.

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.
My extrapolation tells me that it's not far different from K-3 size.

Yes. From the top a bit wider and deeper on the grip side. A bit higher to accommodate the larger viewfinder.

I've been expecting CP+ to be anti-climatic after all the all the announcements last week. I'm glad that people are already finding things to get excited about!
