The full details of Canon 1dx , Sony a6300 and Nikon 500/d5 all get well hidden before formal announcement... Not sure Pentax will be different...

Considering how impatient we are, not very soon

It just feels like waiting for Christmas when I was a child, besides the huge difference, that i wont get anything for free but have to pay

I would even accept a limited release of Pentax MZ-D prototypes, with all their imperfections, to keep us talking and have something to obsess over while we waited for the main game.

Actually, you know people would buy it - a bit like how when authors become famous multi-million-copy sellers with movie deals etc., all their early works and even the rough drafts which weren't really great get snapped up by the fans.

No worry.. Just be patient. For people having been waited for 15 years, 15 days are just a piece of photo...

"ART" is even worse. If a painter gets famous enough people will pay a fortune for a napkin they used to clean the ink from the tip of a ball-point pen. A photographer gets famous enough and people pay a million dollars for a picture of a potato. Has nothing to do the the merits of the image - - it's all the name that's attached.

Admit it, though - if there were a camera show and Pentax were there and they brought the MZ-D prototype along and let people play with it, wouldn't YOU put YOUR SD card in it and your favourite lens on it and take a few shots?

Announcement will be several days before cp+ based on big data analysis on past Pentax announcements..

Unfortunately it will not support SD card... It only supports 1.44mb diskette :-)

Canon 24-70mm f4L has 4 stops image stabilisation on the lens, it's weather and dust resistant and has a semi macro mode with a 0.7x magnification. Pentax however is one stop faster, but it's bigger and 187g heavier. I'm not sure wich is better optical because I haven't touched the Pentax lens.

I do hope Pentax full frame will be a superior camera to 5D Mark III and I do hope it's at least the same in terms of performance as Nikon D810 which is an impressive camera.
It is miles ahead of the 5DMarkIII and head and shoulders above D810. Lots of features that D810 can't touch and image quality to match or even surpass D810.
