There will obviously be a body-only version. As always.
Hope they DO NOT offer color options. A pink and purple K1? WINCE!!!

What are you trying to do, I wonder? Should I look for a certain cat picture?
It will be black, perhaps followed by a gunmetal/silver/whatever "Prestige Edition" or two.

As i also have said before, this first FF have another target group..They want the pros..so they have to deliver a camera and lenses that do so..Thats also why they signed me in the first place! And its easier to get serious photographers and hobby photographers to buy buy pro gear, then to get a pro to buy hobby gear! If you understand. The catalogue will expand, also on FF lenses, but the pro ones is prioritised first.
That looks like some cheaper FF K-2 later...

I'd actually prefer that to the golden&crocodile LX

(Hmm. My plain black LX has been sitting in its bag for awfully long now, maybe I should buy some film)

Sigma really has to rethink the Pentax boycott. I want the 20mm f/1.4
Personally, I'm holding out hope for a wide-angle FF Limited. I don't care if it's fast -- the existing FA Limiteds are only modestly fast -- but something to roughly match the FOV of the DA 15 Limited would be nice. So 18-23mm, something like that.

Until such a thing exists, I'll keep on using that DA 15 in crop mode. It controls my mind, after all.

Quicksand: I shoot auroras so large aperture is a must, but low coma is also important. Vignetting and distortion is easily post processed away.

WPRESTO: I hope for coloured editions so Pentaxians may choose to proudly stand out from competitors. Hopefully some nice colour combinations like silver, black leather, brown leather, white shiny, red, blue.

As Henry said: In any color you want, so long as it's black.

If a cheaper version , it will not be a K2 but a K10 and an entry level could be K100 .
Anyway , I doubt the name will be K1
