- and maybe as early as February 5th! I think it's pretty sure that we'll see it at CP+. In the meantime, let's celebrate Christmas or whatever your favourite holiday/party is

Spoke to Pentax today. It is the callback of all the K-3 II's that is the reason for the delay. The production line can't handle both the callback and the production of the FF. The FF is ready and specs are finished. Will start production as soon as the K-3 II issue is fixed.

If they have to fix the problem in the assembly plant they probably have to replace the circuit board.

Oh, that's really a pity :-(

As a K-5 using ignorant, I haven't heard about the K-3 II issue until now. What is it?

That is as close to making a new one from scratch as it gets, I suppose ... Expensive! Is it all K3ii which are affected or only first batch or something?

Aha. Only certain ranges of serial numbers, it seems:

Maybe the delay is K-3II related too. As in, the launch of that was a bit of a disaster and they had a mass recall. So the Pentax team had to spend extra months sorting that out. Which pushed back the FF by those extra months?
... just saying

If the K-3 II problem is solved early could we see the FF coming before February?

Maybe they should release the specs before Christmas so folks don't use the holiday spirit and splurge on other competing FF systems?

Numbers aren't computing here. According to what I've seen posted, the recall only affected the first two months of production units. Adding two months to the production schedule doesn't take us out of this year, let alone next spring.
