Full Frame coming? soon? maybe?

Flickr: Discussing Full Frame Coming in Pentax K-5 / K-5 II / K-5 IIs Photographers

I doubt this photographer is in the know but I suspect this person is being honest to the best of there knowledge. The photographer btw has some pretty nice shots on Flickr .

It never stops.
From a single rumor, comes tons more energy out, than is put in.
An engineering wonder.
Maybe Ricoh should patent it.

Then again, should Pentax be launching any new camera this fall, their production lines better be busy now to keep up with the demand.

I think they already have - all they have to do is issue a press release - ANY press release - and megawatts are pounded into keyboards all over the world.

Everyone type faster - we're powering the factory that's assembling the (rumored) FF bodies!

All right, I'll try to create some panic...
It's obvious what we should do, in order to protect the Pentax brand: we should buy Pentax branded products, as many as we can. This and only this can show them how much we value "our" Pentax.
What are you waiting for? It takes only a minute to place an online order! Do it now, and Pentax will survive!

On the other hand, we have to show our appreciation and support of the new corporate parent who is going to usher us into the FF promised land... so everyone go out and buy some Ricoh stuff as well...

But then we would have to have multiple threads on whether it should be called Ricoh Perpetual Motion or Pentax Perpetual Motion.

Why come out with a FF body now, when the FAs are scheduled to be discontinued later this year? Makes no sense.

The FFPMM will be outsourced to Hoya.
