The only thing I want to see is a rebranded WR 150-600 consumer superzoom.
I'm 99% sure that option wont exist. You better save up for a non-WR Sigma 150-600 C, a plastic bag and two rubber bands. The K mount version should come around the same time as the lens experiences its first permanent price drop.

I has been told that, to give an advantage to Sony camera business, Pentax (and Nikon too) has to wait 6 months after the release of the sensor. During this 6 month period, Sony camera division has the exclusivity.
News translated from the following site (using google translate) indicates the sony sensor 42MP is in the FF camera

42 megapixeles új tükörreflexes gép érkezik - Technet

"Ricoh's senior staff have spring confirmed the information that the company has a brand new, full-frame sensor Pentax digital camera will come up soon. Officially so far only this much is known about this mysterious new phone, from which of course has been a lot of rumors came to light. These are the latest to the unit a month later, precisely on October 6, a Tuesday will introduce ourselves.

We've always thought that is still unknown típusjelzésű high-end Pentax PDA has a 36-megapixel resolution, with no low-pass filter CMOS image sensor will be located the lenses manufacturer of Tamron company's staff recently, however, he blurted out that the machine is not 36, but 42 megapixels. The sensor is otherwise notified in mid-June MILC high-end camera, the Sony Alpha 7R II comes straight out.

Fully adjustable light sensitivity ISO50 and ISO102400, the fénymérésről a 86-thousand-pixel RGB sensor takes care of, the focus tasks are performed by a SAFOX XI auto focus system with its 27 AF points, of which 25 keresztszenzoros and 3 F2.8's. Note also the K-bayonet, the szenzormozgatásos image stabilization, a 100 percent coverage pentaprism optical viewfinder, a 3.2-inch diagonal display and mobile, as well as dual SDXC memory slot. The expected cost of the new built-in wireless flash is still unknown."

"SAFOX XI" Pentax is doomed ...

Best info is that google translate doesn't like Hungarian language.

The next paragraph makes it even worse -- a PDA.

A smartphone with an embedded 24x36 camera...

This is by all means a bad omen.

Pentax is doomed™.

Wouldn't that look somewhat like a Sony?

I will be a touch disappointed if the FF still basically has the same AF system as the K-3/K-3 II/645Z. That AF system, while competent, is two years old now. Time and technology marches on. Plus, unless modified for FF deployment, the K-3 AF will have less than optimal frame coverage on a FF.

Not long to wait to find out for sure, I guess.

It's coverage not magnification.

The AF frame coverage could have been tweaked with the parabolic second mirror (seen in a Pentax patent).

Note the very last line... a reference to a wireless flash.

Wouldn't it be odd if the new Pentax full frame focused better in live view than through the OVF?
