Seems that a FF Pentax is on the way!

Mike Svitek confirmed that he's been using a FF Pentax


"FF... Same sensor as D600/A99/RX1"

According to Mike's twitter account, it's called K-3

It's getting hard to keep track of all these FF and new camera threads.
I wish we just had one thread for FF 'news' here, and another for non-FF new cameras.

Since the other threads talked about "speculation" and possible april K-3 releases, thought I'd start a new thread about a CONFIRMED K-3 FF.

But I wouldn't mind if this thread was merged with another.

Confirmed, by whom? I don't know who Mike Svitek is, nor if I should trust him (Pentax apparently shouldn't). I mean no disrespect; but on the Internet, anyone can claim anything.
So far, the closest thing to confirming a FF are Kitazawa-san's words.

Fair enough. But I don't know who Kitazawa-san is! So, we're back at square one

Somehow I knew these circular reposts would happen as soon as I saw this being posted in the other thread. It's already spreading like weeds here and on DPR.

Some mod please do us all a favor and close this before it gets even more out of hand.

Except that Nikon D600 and Sony Alpha 99 and RX-1 have different sensors, with / without on-sensor phase detection.

My apologies, I thought everyone here knew.
Toshiyuki Kitazawa-san is Pentax's Head of Business Development. There were several interviews (you can search in this section, those taken by DC Watch) in which he said something on the line of "we're working on a FF, but we still need to convince the financial".

After reading Mike's google+ posts, he may or may not be a troll.

Sorry for jumping the gun on this.

Mods, please close the thread.

This would still have to be rumour, but no, we don't need a dedicated FF subforum. Pentax doesn't have a FF yet! So for now, the plethora of FF discussion threads will just remain in the News and Rumours section. When you see FF appear in the Official Pentax News subforum, *then* we know its for real.

And if this *is* for real then I'm sure he would have had to break an NDA to discuss it on his Google+ blog.

Sort of like the broad hints and rumors of sightings of prototypes "in the wild" before the K-7 was released?

Do we get a blurry photo of the Mode dial next? How about a shadowy outline of the body?
