This makes sense from a marketing perspective, since Ricoh seems to value market share more than margins with the 645Z (it isn't like this segment adds much to the Ricoh bottom line). Having a FF and a FF "lite" possibly gives Ricoh the best of both worlds. I guess we'll find out in a few months. WTH, if the lite version is aggressively priced I might go for it.

Sony did it with their A7 series. Ricoh might as well.

Obviously they are.
Try the two D-FA lenses.
Plus this would correspond to one of their last declarations : "we will invest boldly the FF market"

Well we can hope, I read something obscure on the digicame forum a while back one poster seemed to allude to the fact that they are doing 2 FF cameras flagship and something else, but who knows?

An Egypt photo store employee knowing more than the rest of the world?
Even with precise specification data?

Come on, it really has become too easy to spread a rumor.

@falconeye: it could be worse, the rumor could come from Greece.

I wouldn't be surprised either way, but I would think releasing just one camera (the more expensive one) to start with would be the way to go, with an indication that another full frame camera would follow down the road. Seems like they could damage their flagship sales if they release a cheaper full frame at the same time.
