Pentax can't answer the reason for delay

According to Dejicame Watch, Japanese web magazine, Pentax said "We can't answer" when asked about the reason for delay.

There's no context, for all we know it could be the size of a small bus.

Makes sense, the 70-200 release was scheduled around then, and so far no actual information or release date on a FF standard kit zoom lens, and or if there will be a battery grip available. It would be a huge mistake for Pentax to rush out a FF body, without a valid system to support it. Yes, there are the limited FF lenses, but there would be negative criticism if there were no new updated kit zoom.

Things will be be seeing information on soon.

As far as my memory goes when the FF was first announced it was thought then it would be a 2016 release.
