Reflecting further, if FF has a stabilisation advantage over APS-C, where does this advantage stem from, if I might ask? Was thinking it through but don't quite get it...

For example if as a portrait photographer I use an APS-C body @50mm focal length, effectively the IBIS has to stabilise a 75mm focal length, after multiplying 50 by 1.5.

But if instead I chose to work with a FF body, as many portrait photographers do, I would then chose a lens of approx 70-85mm focal length, say, eg. the FA77. Thus the IBIS now has to deal with a 77mm focal length (this time without having to multiply by 1.5). So it's working out to the same thing, it seems to me. I'm sorry, I don't understand where the stabilisation advantage is coming from.
Because the sensor is bigger, but camera shake stays the same.(this is of course an unknown because it depends on the photographer). Since a FF is not cropped motion blur will be less obvious because it is relatively smaller. (unless you go and crop) Also the pixels on de FF will be bigger (probably, we don't know the mp yet). So that motion blur will be less obvious. Bigger pixels can be moved more before they flow into their neigbours (Of course when you want to make large prints it is always best to shoot of a tripod or at higher shutter times). The focal length is minimum shutter time rule comes from the film age and you should actually apply a factor 1.5 to it. (although I could go down to 1/15th with a 50mm lens back then with varying results.)

My aps-c sized K5 sensor is 16MP. It is highly unlikely the FF sensor will be less than 20 something MPs and most likely will include a version with 30 something MPs, in which case some math is required to figure out if the actual pixels or whatever they are called on the sensor of the FF turn out to be bigger (less prone to shake?) than on my K5. Unfortunately I am no good at math. Anyway I hope so since the SR on the K5 is ok but could be better.

Apart from sensor size, the effectiveness of SR seems to have a lot to do with what type of SR system is used: mechanical, optical, X axis etc. One can hope that the SR system of the upcoming FF is a new and improved one and therefore gives more effective reduction of camera shake than on the legacy cameras, which is quite important if potential users like me want to be able to use the upcoming FF hand held in low light at least as comfortably as with the aps-c cameras.

Unless of course the FF comes with a built-in tripod instead of a built-in flash :-)

Sports photographers would also get in trouble. Among farmers it will be a big hit.

The two biggest reasons people have moved away from Pentax is the lack of a FF body and poor AF. AF performance will be critical for the K-1.

I hope they can rival the big boys in af soon because the image quality is there.

You are right about that, but it I think they will call it K2 or K-2. Here is one of the reasons: | RICOH IMAGING


Why should the make the slogan "Always with you" otherwise? They called the mirrorless K-01, and that was not FF. 0 was for no mirror, but they used the same font as the did with the filmcamereas that introdused the K-Mount. So my guess is K2!

Windhorse, I think the SR of the full frame it will be improved. Why? Look at the new Pentax K-3 II (which I ordered)...is improved over the K3 in terms of SR (with 4.5 shutter steps vs K3's 3,5 shutter steps). Also the already good AF from the K-3 seems to be improve with K-3 II when tracking subjects. So, if you ask me, the full frame will be a very capable "machine".

Personally I don't need a full frame (K-3 II has everything I need), but I must say that I hope that this full frame from Pentax would be the starting point of a new age for Pentax users. With this camera, the circle is complete (best APS-C body with K3, best medium format camera with 645Z, and let's hope the full frame will be a winner to).

Chapeau Pentax!

Thanks Banep. Do you have full patent references?
Might be interesting to try to decipher it.

Thanks
