Are we sure they even know? You would expect some kind of trickle marketing just to generate a little buzz and keep the brand visible. Its almost like they have changed their minds and are hoping people forget they ever announced a FF body.
Nonsense. They were always secretive, specs leaking just days before the official announcement.
The February announcement was just for stating the obvious, i.e. they didn't announce a FF lens line without working on a camera.

Then you know more then me. The summer is also over soon btw.
Where I live (just south of Norway btw.), the summer never arrived. Does that mean the FF is cancelled?

No, it just means Global Warming was cancelled.

I look forward to the day when Godwin's Law for Pentax changes from 'FF' to 'MILC'.

We're in month three of a severe drought, and I live in a RAINFOREST...

Stage three water restrictions, reservoirs at dangerously low levels, brown dead grass everywhere, severe fire danger throughout the province, this in a zone usually in line for 100+ INCHES of rain a year...

...but full-frame is a myth, and Pentax is, of course, doomed, along with Apple...



Cheers,
Cameron

Get a grip, everyone. Ricoh has stuck their necks out and officially showed a mockup body and invested in/released two FF lenses so far.

And back in it's day, the K-3 popped out of no where.. Ricoh kept their cards close to their vest for a long time before reveal in Oct 2013. I doubt they've changed their tactics at all.. because it worked pretty well for the K-3.

The impatient and faithless are now showing their colors... the wait is bringing it out. Soon it will be released, you'll be thinking 'this and this is wrong with it' and will move on to the next big life dilemma -- what should Ricoh do to make the 2nd digital FF body how you wanted it? rinse repeat..

Where's the FF MILC!!!????? Sony is KILLING us.

I'm quite certain Ricoh has a Plan. Unfortunately many Pentaxians won't be happy regardless.

I thought - and hoped - this debate was closed for good....

That's another industrial option, an other business model, a potential killer for the existing catalog, an enormous R&D effort with incredible risks to disperse the existing pentaxian community, with not more revenue in the short term.
Sony would be happier for sure, they would "win" with short notice in that case. But probably sell less sensors overall.
