If i understood correctly..bear in mind that i wasn't drooling atm and didn't pay attention..That there will be 2 version of the FF. One with and one without the 645 connectivity. So take this with a pinch of salt since I'm not sure i heard or understood correctly
That makes sense to me, I probably didn't understand well information which I got back in april 2015.
Here is the link https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/16-pentax-news-rumors/288490-unveiling-fu...ml#post3281754
He just told that there will be two bodies, rest of that post was my speculation.
Btw until now I believed that new DFA 28-105 will be f/4 or f/3.5-4.5, despite I got exact specification (HD DFA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 WR) from him almost 5 months ago (last week in september 2015).

I don't know if Olympus Air is a good seller, but I don't want one or a similar K mount camera.

I primarily want Wifi for easily importing images from a real camera to the phone. Secondary I want a phone with a set of good cameras, even if it means tripling the thickness around the camera part of it. A built in theta plus a 35mm equivalent and a 100mm equivalent with tilted optics. Or even two 35mm equivalent lenses for 3D and for combining high and low exposure.
I'd love a K mount equivalent of an olympus air, that would be really fun! Even better with an open API so I could do fun things with it.

Oh whatever. I have lens coverage in both. I think APS-C, to keep the cost down. A thing like that is a bit of a toy like a fisheye lens. Fun, but you don't want it to be too nice lest you feel foolish for the purchase. :P

Be prepared for an endless round of Ricoh/Pentax bashing should the adapter support wide-open metering while the K-mount remains "crippled".

But there is something clever if you think vice versa. They could design a camera without back LCD and implementing a smartphone connection that use a smartphone as back LCD instead. That would have a lot of advantages:

a) the camera can be designed much more compact
b) the power consumption of the camera is reduced
c) no scratched back LCD, that usually happens after a couple of time in use !
d) the camera can be sold cheaper, because the costs of the back LCD don't exist
e) the smartphone can be placed free in any position, even far away of the positioned camera
f) they can implement the "touch-pad" function very easy, by using the touch of the smartphone. I'm really no friend of a touch-pad on a camera, because it's just a question of time that the touch gets scatches as an ordinary LCD too. But a scratch at a touch display means immediately that it is broken and must be replaced with a lot of costs even if you don't need it.

P.S.:

g) you could also use a tablet as display, that gives much better impression of the picture and would allow you to edit Raw-Pictures with software at site
It's been done. The ergonomics are a little lacking

That image gives me the impression of what Mirrorless enthusiasts want their cameras to look like. Progress!

That is it done badly. But someone mounted the smartphone onto the lens, so that you carry the lens on your shoulder and have the screen in front of your eye. Suddenly the ergonomics got a lot better, better than say with a DSLR. Granted you should be careful cause everyone thinks you carry a bazooka...

At least in the first case, you can use a tripod...
Second one is a circus demonstration
