Samsung Full Frame Camera

Samsung designing full-frame CMOS sensor for Pentax, Samsung DLSRs

This link is OLD OK!!!

I'm NOT saying they will AT ALL before I get any slack I'm just curious.. It seems samsung may have a full frame sensor soon..

So now IMAGINE IF Samsung Released their OWN FULL FRAME dslr camera but with the fully functioning k mount.

Would you leave Pentax's cameras to buy a Samsung full frame camera?

I voted as sticking with the APS-C pentax, however if the FF is ~1k more than the APS-C I will switch to Samsung ?, that is, if it is still K-mount...if the mount is different, no way in hell (If I can't use my FA43, then I don't care how fabulicious and cheap the body is, I wouldn't want it.....)

P.S: FF with FA31, FA43 and FA77 is a dream....so, yeah that would be way too cool.

I'd buy, Pentax needs to bring out the new FF lens line! The DA roadmap looks complete.

I voted for Pentax but it does depend on a number of factors.

1, I can't see Samsung making Pentax wait for FF sensor.

2, Is it any good.

3, looking at the FF cameras from the competition there not that much better.

4, I'd rather have the 645D first.

Did you bother to find out it was a blog from early 2008?

Did you bother to read the word "Imagine" and "If"!?

I very much doubt samsung would release a full frame camera by them selves but this was just a poll out of curiosity to see if people want a pentax full frame or just a full frame camera with the k mount.

Full frame with a K mount...non-crippled too, please...

I don't care what name is on the pentaprism, as long as it's a good camera. It could have an Ikea name like "Gruudignid" and it wouldn't matter to me.

Well if Samsung release it with an NOT-crippled mount...
And if Pentax is not releasing one after a couple of weeks, I will buy 100% for sure the Samsung FF dSLR. When the specs are okay and the reviews are okay of course. Even if it is prices EUR 3000.

Assuming it would have K mount (which is not sure), I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I would wonder about the extent of the cooperation between Samsung and Schneider and whether it might evolve into pro-level lenses, especially wide angles, actually made by Schneider.

Quite frankly, I don't care. My current camera does what I need it to do. What I want is more/better lenses. Most of you need FF just as much as I need a kidney transplant.
