Why is it so late?

QuoteOriginally posted by emr Quote
Isn't that a bit late? The first generation of FF DSLRs have already been replaced and the next generation and cheaper versions are selling NOW, in 2009. And now we're hearing rumors about 2011. What's the point? By that time people who care about FF at all have long ago switched brands and the remaining either want to have a smaller camera body or just don't give a damn about sensor size.
Sometimes coming in later is better. FF now is better and less expensive than it was. You wanted to pay 3 times as much for it a few years ago? Did Pentax offer a good camera to capture photos in the mean time? Will this APS-C camera continue to offer value by being lighter and less expensive even in the future as a back up to a FF?

There is not a fixed number of FF fans that were born when you were and you either keep them or lose them. There are new potential FF customers coming along everyday that may not even be Pentax customers.

Hey, I also heard that the new Pentax will include a cigarette lighter and a flare gun for "greater creative lighting control".

In what format? A 12-15Mp FF cam?

That'd be sweet, along with some longer glass...

Now what would you do with 24Mp that 15Mp cannot do?

I'd rather have 15mp ff than 24. Just give me 77 point auto focus that has instant lock and silky smooth images up to ISO 6400. I don't really care if it is FF or APS-C to tell you the truth. As long as the high ISO is clean and the autofocus is instant and dead-on I'd be a happy camper.

3. FF camera with 5 new FF lenses will be announced close to the end of 2010.
No info about date of sales. Forecast - first part of 2011.
Sensor - two options Not SONY.
People at Pentax France tell to visitors of the Salon de la Photo in Paris that there will be a FF camera in 2011. Looks as if you had the information before anyone.
