maybe is true, maybe is not

In a recent interview, Pentax/Ricoh executive Mr. Kawauchi confirmed that the company is still working on a full frame camera:
Q: Now, what's going on for the Pentax Full Frame thing?
A: Our development team is still working on it and the project is not aborted.

"The project is not aborted."

Kinda like a person in an unwakeable coma is not officially dead?

Be still my heart.

Are you discussing nuances in a Japanese to Chinese to English translation (partially made by RiceHigh)? You don't even know if those words were actually used!

That's not how I read it. More like a double confirmation or tautology: we are working on it, it is happening, the concept is not dead, we haven't forgotten it.

Kind of like how a politician wants to get a simple message emphasised.

So, is the glass half full, or is it half empty?

No, they're still holding weekly meetings, sparsely attended, on whether or not to purchase a glass.

A half full or half empty glass would indicate that at least SOMETHING is present in the glass. In relation to Pentax FF, the glass is currently completely empty.

Yes, but need a plan.

Should I save $500 a month, $250 a month, $100 a month, $50 a month or $10 a month?

My plan at present is to avoid trying out any of the Nikon product. I have seen Tuco's results with the D600 and it is mighty tempting to abandon Pentax (except for film) when/if my K10D dies.
