Woo hoo...should be interesting to hear more about it. A Japan only release?...come out in Orange?

If it isn't too expensive and ends up being that much better than FF (at least for the type of shots I take), I might be tempted...

this looks very cool. but I doubt any of us will be able to afford it.
I'm excited for Pentax, though. It's not a bad idea to branch out into another lane than to try to compete head on with the big two... especially when they have established themselves so well.

A 645D would be very awesome and could become a very good alternative for professional shooters.

I don't see anything but a black shadow of a camera and a countdown that keeps starting over.

Agreed. That could be anything. Looks too compact for the 645D.

Full-frame, maybe?

You're right, it definitely looks smaller than medium-format. Since the K-x is so recent, maybe Pentax is going to shock everyone and drop the full-frame bomb before they officially announce the 645D?

Are you guys serious???
This is clearly the 645D silhouette. Why the dreaming about FF yet again?

Not much for me to gather from that link just yet (I guess I'll just have to keep checking it) except that the Pentax Japan site looks so much cooler than pentaximaging.com.

Forget about FF... medium format is the next best thing! This is clearly a 645D!

If the 645D has an MSRP of $2500 or less then no problem, FF is forgotten. However, if it is $8k then it is no more relevant to me than a Leica M9 is. Meaning, it's nice to know its out there just in case I win the lottery, but aside from that there's no way I will own one sadly.
