Re-cycling another Pentax FF rumour/FF rumor from A German photography magazine

Just re-cycling another full-frame rumour.

If it has already been aired here, apologies. Mods can delete.
It's so hard to tell what's new with so many rumour threads about:

from
Full Frame Pentax Coming at Photokina. Again. Though Probably Not. - Photo.net Pentax Forum
via
Is it Oy! or Yay!!? another FF rumor: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

Popped into a brick and mortar store here in Asia yesterday where Pentax goods are still sold a plenty. I happen to be in the process of buying an old Pentax medium format film kit from the old man. He was buzzing with excitement as I opened his shop door. With an irrepressible grin, he said (in heavily accented English), "Full-frame! I know!" It turns out a Pentax rep from Japan was passing through the day before. The rep was showing my friend the new line up of products through the medium of pictures of the products on an iPad. Suddenly a camera body was shown that was nothing that has yet been released (this is after the K5ii and K5iis were formally presented - so it wasn't them). My friend asked what it was. The rep shut his iPad down in a flash. The rep refused to talk about it, but when pointedly asked if it was a full-frame camera for Pentax, he winked in an exaggerated fashion at my friend. I don't tread the rumor mill. I won't even buy a full-frame camera if one was released, well, not yet anyway. But I smell a new season for Pentax under Ricoh. In the words of Johnny Cash: "There ain't no grave, can hold my body down."

Sounds alright, but somehow sounds familiar... in particular the excited old guy and the supposed rep.

I'll stay hopefully though

What would be the point of all this cloak-and-dagger secrecy stuff if they actually have a product?

Are they afraid people may make plans/save to buy it? Why some people might even defer changing brands to get into FF!!

I'm glad to know you have given them the authority to delete. Please, make them give free Pentax lenses to everyone with a PF account for your next trick!!

Why the butthurt?

I just was suggesting that they might have a better handle on whether this post was a duplicate or something, and that if yes, it would be no big deal to me if they pressed delete on this thread.

That's what I was thinking too, but I couldn't find the other example of this same anecdote.

Your comment read funny to me.. it is similar to seeing a police officer somewhere and telling them it is okay if they arrest you if they catch you robbing someone...

Here we go again...

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

Sasquatch only is visible on FF cameras.
