I can recommend superglue it works a treat for most things.
There are very few photo models that cannot be stabilized with the generous application of duct tape.

Exciting stuff. For myself, the more effective reach with the same lens thing is still pretty important. I can't imagine going back to the larger less dense sensor. If I want wider on APS-c I use my Sigma 8-16. If I want longer on FF, well my A-400 becomes the equivalent of 265mm lens. I'm used to it being an A-600 on APS-c. I shouldn't have to expound on the disadvantages of carrying a 600mm lens as opposed to a 400. (ALthough when the D750 dudes are her, I do. (Someone has to interrupt the "I am so in love with my FF camera" monologue, and bring them back from la la land.)

As things stand to date, I'm going to have to see she pretty compelling images to interest me. My guess, is, I rent one of them for a couple of weeks when they become available You can read all you want about different formats, You don't know anything until you work with it. For large format I'm still thinking used 645d. The FF is going to have to sell me.

Too much Christmas spirit, I reckon.

PS: I think he meant that, if the 55-300 covered the full 35mm frame at 300, then using the crop mode will give it the field of view that a 450 would give on a 35mm frame. It just didn't actually read that way.
Hmm... which kind of spirits?

Yet another example when the correct way of describing things is much simpler than the 'simplification' The lens projects an image. You capture and use from that image a rectangle of whatever size (and you can make that decision in camera, in post and even after print, with a pair of scissors). That's it

I think it was more that if it covers the 35mm frame at 55, then you get 35mm-equivalent FoVs from 55 at the wide end (in FF mode) to 450 at the tight end (in crop mode).
Yep!

And thank you for giving me the benefit of the doubt where others in this thread would not.. we have some rather unfriendly/unpolite folks here mixed with the friendly/polite ones as yourself.

Until I saw it has APS capability, I wasn't too interested. Now I am!
Why wouldn't it have it? BTW you can always crop in post.

I can't say why it wouldn't because I didn't know it was something that could be made optional. I knew you could crop, but adding to post processing isn't something I am interested in doing.

Maybe more like a K5ii - the Sensor area of a FF vs. an APSC is about 2.25x (H 1.5x times W 1.5x) - typically 36mp full frame cameras have a 16mp crop mode. To get K3 resolution when cropped you need a > 50mp sensor.
I guess you are right, UncleVanya, it would be more like k-5IIs pixel wise built into the k-1 FF...but it is still good as long as the sensor dynamic range remains the same or better.

News flash 2014: Pentax is doomed because it has no FF
News flash 2016: Pentax is doomed because it has APS-C

sigh.

The way I look at it in reference to the new Pentax k-1 FF and the existence of k-3 or like models. Hence, I don't think Ricoh will abandon the APS-C line.
-for those who want to shoot both FF and APS-C, the obvious choice would be a k-1 FF (two cameras in one), as it has a bigger/brighter viewfinder which most people like.
-for those who just want to shoot solely with APS-C (mainly for the reach and perhaps less weight), the choice would be a k-3 and/or successors.

???

In APS-C mode you throw away more than half your pixels.

36 or 42Mps, it will still be less than the K-3.

You also throw away more than half of your viewfinder, ending with one much smaller than that of an APS-C camera.
