LX-D is dangerously close to LSD, and while I admit that the Pentax FF will cause about the same reaction in many, it's a thin line to walk.. LX-n? L-n? K-Fn? n - not necessarily "1", could be something else, 10, 100, 5, who knows.

I once said it in this forum...

it should be K-XL

The XL stands fof two main reasons which carry significant meanings to Pentax:

XL as in large, big, largest, size...... FULL FRAME!

XL as in 40, (Roman number) as Pentax's 40th anniversary of the K mount! 1975-2015

It's actually going to be simply referred to as the Pentax FF, with fancy LEDs on the front allowing the user to customize the name of the camera as they please.

In that case it'd be the Pentax FFS!

LX-1 for Pro FF.
MX-something (1 already taken I guess) for semi-pro.

I wouldn't mind if they called it Z-1D, after my favourite film camera of all time.

K2 or K-2 more or less the same..., but I've figured out that the size will be aprox. the same as K-3. Just a little bit taller. If you measure the size of the K-mount on the mocup, it is the same size as the K-Mount in real size camereas. So it is not huge, it is one of the smallest ff.
