Ehhhmmm

This date is winter, not spring 2016 ...
As pointed out in one of the numerous other threads (can't keep track of which ), Japanese spring starts already on February 5th!

Moderators ... please close this thread. The last thing the forum needs is a thread with 900 replies of nothing.

I assumed it would be released in Spring, so an announcement in late February would not be contrary to that assumption?
The announcement was this spring already.

It says "2016 Spring Debut" in the English version of the teaser site.

It's more than five years since my "Photokina 2010, Pentax and the full frame mystery" blog article. Pentax is six years late, do another 6 months really make a difference?

Writing things into a blog don't necessarily make them correct or possible - in retrospective we can be quite sure that FF under Hoya could not happen.
Besides, the entity launching the K-mount product line-up is Ricoh Imaging, formerly known as Pentax Ricoh Imaging, which started on 1st October 2011. They're just 4 years and 8 days old.
If anything, they should be praised to starting the FF project as soon as they could.

I doubt that.
Contrary to the popular opinion, Ricoh Imaging is not acting on purely malice towards their users.

If I would not know you better I would take this answers as extra captious, however, who cares.

Final countdown covers, but nobody knows the Laibach reinterpretation? Look at those 90s graphics
These are the guys that recently had a concert in North Korea. Yes, North.

To stay on topic: Well, I guess the FF might come, but its really too bad it was delayed. Makes things look shady, which is the last thing Pentax needs

What do you want them to do... flip-flop spring to winter when they translate from Japanese to English? This is getting all too pedantic.

Laibach brings me to Rammstein. Anybody know an appropriate Rammstein song for the FF-announcement?
