The big news in this french article, is They receive their TEST camera from Pentax.

This mean they got the final version and they confirm the full review is coming soon.

It's seem very quiet from all test site , I am sure they are in what we call in marketing the Quiet Period , is the timeline were all testers can not talk about the product(As they receive the final version) until an official date. I am sure Pentax Forum got their copy and are bind by the same rule. And same for Kenspo, he is very quiet lately.
When the official day come, then the a flood of reviews will be coming. This create a buzz in the market . You also have to check publishing date of the key Photo magazine to make sure they are close to the launch date and normally will be showing on the first page.

Says who?

(apart from you, obviously )
The DA 40 and DA 70 both can cover full frame but they were not made for full frame. APS-H crop would ensure that these lenses don't have any problems. APS-H could well be the sweet spot for these lenses. I would rather have an APS-H crop that uses more of the pixels the sensor has.

As for cropping a full frame capture after the image has been taken doesn't help me while I am taking the image in the first place. I don't crop my images. I frame the images from the viewfinder. So I would rather have an APS-H crop in the viewfinder so I can better realize the composition while taking the image.

DA40 is an M40 in disguise so it was made for full frame.
It wasn't made according to modern FF standards though....

The Guy at SRS told me today that they expect to get their full order on the 25th April, also that Pentax are ringing them up every morning to find out who has ordered the Grip Bundle.
Took the "Next-Day" delivery option so expecting mine a week Tuesday, Yay!

Yup, prepare yourselves for a new round of squealing over video, crop modes, OBF, WiFi, GPS, crippled mount and whatever.

I'm hoping that won't happen again until they announce the next APS-C camera.

added: I guess I have to take back my words above. From what I'm seeing on other threads, there will be continual moaning about the lack of optional split-prism focus screen for the K-1. I'm satisfied with what the "focus achieved" signal does {along with what I see in the K-30 viewfinder}, but apparently manual focus is becoming a big issue for some.

?? What are these 'modern FF standards'? I'd like to learn more about these standards.

The HD DA 40 seems to have OK credentials as a lens for use on 'modern FF'. It has the latest coatings, minimal CA and vignetting, and a design based on the 24x36 film image circle.
