Yeah, from what Photo Rumors is already saying and what has been talking about in DPR for the last couple of days, 2 new FF lenses will release tomorrow....but.....when there is smoke there is fire......does that mean that they will also release the FF body at the same time ? I would suspect yes because why release 2 FF lenses unless you plan on releasing a FF body to go with it. I heard it is in the K-3 form factor, which is a good thing, with many additional improvements. We will know in give or take in 16 and 1/2 hours.
Would you mind saying where you heard some of the latter things? I know of the lenses, but I havent seen ANY leaked info on the possible FF body.

Read the CP+ thread. It was pretty much stated outright what's coming in the next 12 months - including even more FF lenses.

Official announcements from Ricoh? Or standard PF conjecture?

From Asahi Man at DPR. He is extremely reliable as he has contacts within Pentax. He is rarely wrong.


At CES it was a 90% ready lens.
The big zoom is ready like the 70-200.
The Fullframe SLR has a classic body,little bit like K-3 Style,but different.
Only a couple of people has seen the first pictures this week,Pentax will show more for public at CP+.
Camera could be available in Summer/little later,maybe autumn.
They guaranteed me till christmas hahaha
So,this year i get confirmed my last informations i given here,70-200,1x0-4x0 and fullframe body slr type!
It looks like that Pentax is using the CP+ for fullframe.
Like the last was made for 645Z
*lens is of course SDM.
Best regards

Well, as many times as I have been let down, I will believe it when i see it officially. Pentax has made me a complete skeptic.

I have not seen anything official regarding the 70-200 but it seems since we have a timer there is something rock solid?
I can't believe that there isn't something rock solid for the homepage counter. But what do I know?

The counter is a warning of impending doom.
Make sure you log off from the site before it reaches zero.
Wait for an email to let you know when it is safe to log back in.
Read this while you are waiting.

Adam, in a way I appreciate the effort to put a countdown towards my (Fairly Frustrating) 40th birthday. On the other hand, I'd rather not be reminded.

It has to be the 5'th. It is already the 4'th here in Oz and nothing has happened.
