FF, I'm so happy!

I don't need one, but I'll buy one (even if I cannot afford it!)

Happy FF for everybody!

The only piece of information I want to know is does the FF camera support screw drive lenses? I have many!

Please

Yep. Looks like a 3D-printed prototype, though I like that the design concept bears a family resemblance to the the K-5/K-3 line.

(I shoot with my K-5 daily, but I recently made the mistake of looking through the viewfinder my old Konica Autoreflex T4. Sigh.)

Waiting for more than just a block of machined plastic...

The body design in this prototype makes it look like a Serious Camera. Styling is definitely not that of a toy. Nikon and Canon, be scared.

Can you tell us more now? Anything especial, unique?

It looks good, compact enough for an FF.

Come on!
Isnt every camera from Pentax unique?

It would have to as all FA Limited and FA primes in production are screw drive.
After the 70-200 now they only need to announce a D FA normal zoom and they have a full complement of FF lenses to support the camera at release.

The only thing left to be confirmed is if the DA lenses that cover FF image circle will be allowed to shoot at full coverage, or are forced to crop.

I'm very happy for all of the Pentaxians who've been pining for full-frame digital gear. It's far too expensive for me, however. I just hope enough people buy this camera and new lenses to make it worth it to Ricoh. Otherwise, they'll never listen to the faithful again.

This is going to arrive just in time for me., I couldn't be more pleased. Looking forward to seeing the prototype at CP+. That 150-450 sure does look like a mean lens. Wow!
