A person (who cannot be named as he is not authorized to speak to the press - or anyone else, and never does) at B&H told me (or someone close to me) that I could pre-pre-order a Pentax FF. From another shop.

Is that good enough?

FF rumor from A German photography magazine

Rumor: Pentax K-3 full frame DSLR camera at Photokina | Photo Rumors

A German photography magazine is reporting about a possible Photokina appearance of a full frame DSLR camera from Pentax called K-3:

"Insiders are also hoping to get a glimpse of the K-3, Pentax's new digital mirror reflex camera, which comes equipped with full format sensor. Until now, such cameras had only been made by big names like Canon, Nikon and Sony."


Read more on PhotoRumors.com: Rumor: Pentax K-3 full frame DSLR camera at Photokina | Photo Rumors

Plus another story from Photo.net. Pentax FF might finally here!

But..... what if Pentax FF is mirrorless - K02?

What does "winked in an exaggerated fashion" actually indicate?

Don't recall so many rumors about Pentax FF in previous years, this might finally be the year.

Hope it is not a mirrorless (or not in that K-01 body!). Excited.

The text clearly states: digital mirror reflex camera.
Question is... where did this information come from?
There seems to be no source or reference given that I could see. (hope it wasn't from here )

And I quote:

Here we go again...

Pentax FF is turning into an urban legend. It's probably more popular than Sasquatch right now.

I have merged 3 threads on the same thing in the last 20 minutes. :Hysterical:

It could be circular rumors. Try following all the rumors and see where it leads. But theres definitely a 24mp "K3" coming. The jury is out whether it is APS or FF.
Eg I followed the widely spread $1500 Nikon D600 rumor through the net and cound't find that it had a source; all I found was that it was just likely somebodys wishful thinking.

Sasquatch is Bigfoot is Yeti is Abominable Snowman is Skunk Ape is ...

A creature whom many people claim to have encountered but no solid proof exists.

Most likely it comes from Photorumors.com who found it here as a 1. April joke...

The 'wink' part of the story suggests the old 'nudge-nudge-wink-wink' Monty Python sketch, which also mentions photography:


Maybe that's the basis of this 'report from Asia'.

The only thing that has me curious is what are they actually going to release at Photkina since they have already released so many other things seems they would save something for the actual event to garnish some attention.

Judging by the suggested size of this creature, its solid proof would be in very large piles!
