If they were actually selling one I probably would have bought it. But it's endless jibber-jabber with them - not even a body under glass at a trade show or well placed press leak. They can't even get a proper translation of their management so we are left with endless interpretations of 'maybe we will do something, y'know we really didn't want to... but I think we should... so probably we'll look at it..." . FFS, that's no way to run a company.

Now Pentax/Ricoh seem to be trying to speed things up, for sure, but their are probably a few challenges in the design. The APS-C mirror box, shutter assembly, and viewfinder aren't the right size, for starters, so they can't just upsize the sensor. I've heard that the older ist's had a ff mirror, but they must have lost the drawings

I was sort of hoping for a FF by now; ie mid-year, but I've decided the next body will be MF since I can actually buy one 'now', and I like the look even more than FF. I'll have to save a bit longer, and it means I probably won't buy the FF when it comes out, whenever that is, 2015 or 2020 or whatever.

If it's FF you want, the D800 is pretty nice... I don't like Canon ergonomics, I find the Nikons are closer to what I like, and the D800 is ok. Kinda spendy with good glass though. (edit - kinda spendy for a teeny 'non-MF' sensor)

It's right where Pentax said it would be - under development.
Take your time and do it right folks, to torment those who fled the Pentax nest a little too soon...

Time and again I come across Angry Pentaxians--a kind of online game.

I stole it off the internet. When I was a m0dErAt0r on a truck driver's forum I found it useful to deal with the daily flame wars and whiners.

I have a whole collection of images to use that help illustrate my posts on iNtErNeT f0RuMz. It makes it much more fun!
