Pentax patented an adjustable translucence mirror. PDAF is easily the #1 complaint of Pentax users for years now. If Sony offered an off the shelf PD on chip solution they'd be crazy to not implement it.
Oh wow, now that would be cool!

If the Pentax FF uses a conventional DSLR mirror design, no light hits the sensor until after the shutter is released. Things need to be in focus before releasing the shutter so a separate PDAF module is required.

If the FF is a mirrorless or translucent mirror design, then on-chip PDAF becomes meaningful.
Ah, sorry, you are quite right although don't Canon use some kind of on-sensor system in some of their models? I guess the writing's in the wall for the poor old OVF, though. The kind of abilities being introduced on these new sensors might be very hard to replicate using traditional methods.

Can't multi-quote on mobile.

@ Konra Darnok & @ Ogl: start your rumor engines. Pixel Shift was a head fake? This is the new tech surprise?

Wowsers!!

How does Ricoh not using part of that sensor make it cost less for Sony to produce?
Because Sony need only 1 process and 1 type of Sensor to make. This is pretty comon for chip makers to have one chip and just disable some feature on the cheaper model. Intel does that a lot. Nvidia does too.

If they price it like the 5Ds/r, it better offer something amazing.
Not just a Pentax logo on top.

Yes, I'm hoping that is the price with a 2 lens kit and not body only... if this is an accurate price with which to begin..
