I had to find out. I was on a mission. All this talk and rumors of FF had been killing me, so much so that I was about to do anything, I mean anything to find out if there is indeed a FF model coming out by our beloved brand Pentax Ricoh Imaging Company. So I bought a one way ticket to Japan, completely determined not to come back until I found out the truth.

Once landed there, I hopped onto Narita express and went directly to Shinjyuku, where Pentax Forum, a service center and showroom of sort where you can touch all Pentax models including 645d, is located. It took me a little while to find it, as the place was tucked under the ground level, partially hidden from a plain view of the street.

I walked in there, again with a determination of an used car sales man who had not met his quota at the end of the month. I was going to find out the truth, no matter what.

The very first person that I saw was a young girl of about 20, with a slender figure with large black eyes and long straight hair that nearly reached her waist line. She was not exactly my type, but it didn't matter; I reminded myself that I was to do anything it took to find out the truth. I then casually struck a conversation with this girl, first about how great 645d is and how lame D800E really was. It wasn't before long that I was able to score a dinner date with her that evening.

That night, with some help from Viagra pills, I was able to find out in the mist of her endless orgasm that yes yes yes and yes there was a FF being announced at Photokina this coming Tuesday.

Next morning, I left her apartment before she awoke, not wanting to disturb her conscious.

And so there was, indeed, a Happy Ending!

LOL.

I like where all this is going. Lots of rumours, a photoshop frenzy, now soft-core full-frame fan fiction.

That's the Lance Armstrong of rumours.

Now if you'd said she was "a larger but nevertheless stunning woman", then I would have believed that SHE was the Full Frame Model......boom, tish.

Am I actually the only one who finds it rather suspicious, that a GERMAN photography magazine would write in ENGLISH?
Well, I actually had a closer look at the twitter source and put the message found there through google translate and guess what: The source is no german photography magazine, but the on board magazine of the airline Germanwings! And to be honest: I doubt, they have any insight at what's happening at Pentax Ricoh...

btw: first time poster here, but long time Pentax user.

You mean if I went to the Pentax forum without my girlfriend I may have had a different experience?

I recommend a visit for anyone who is going to Tokyo by the way. The Pentax Forum isn't too hard to find, and it's a great chance to try out some gear.

What does "winked in an exaggerated fashion" actually indicate?
Nudge, nudge, know what I mean?

I've got my local store asking me would I like a D600 as a side order to go (with my D800) and when I come in here it's still the same tragic scene of endless progostications. I hope to God Pentax releases a FF ASAP so the FF tragics in here can finally get a life. I'm addicted to reading as much as the next guy but the bubble is about to pop.
