This is great news.

Hopefully this launch will finally spell the end of that unfunny joke, repeated ad nauseam, about Pentax being doomed.

I think the Pentax "being doomed" is satire from a British Sitcom called Dad's Army. One of the characters in the show would always say "we're doomed" when ever something bad happed to the platoon in the show. It's pretty funny really.

SYSTEM APPROACH : SAFOX XI with phase detection with 27 pts (25 in cross and 3 of f2.8 )
...
EMBEDDED FLASH : No
I hope that they spread the AF points a wee bit wider this time. And that it is all still -3EV.
I hope that's wrong about the flash. I like popup flash. I can live without it, but it's useful sometimes.

This doesn't look right. There is no reason to think the FF will be narrower than the K-3, but it should be taller.
Once you line up the sides the FF will be a bit taller.

Awesome! Cool lenses.
But I assume the photo of the camera body is an early prototype (texture, labels, circle around mount) and the final product will look better and this would also explain why its outline might appear to be smaller than the K-3. Maybe the FF won't be much bigger than the K-3, but I really doubt it will be smaller
One other thing is that even if you line up two photos so the mount is the same size, it doesn't mean the rest of the photo will necessarily be representative of the relative sizes. If you use different focal length and perspective/distance, you can change the apparent "size" of objects. The two photos might not have been take under the same conditions, so overlapping them is not perfectly accurate. Though, a FF smaller than the K-3 sure would be very tempting

In the mean time...

While waiting, I'm going to pop over to ebay and drop $1500 on an FA 80-200.


Who's with me?
