The second photo, if you look really close at the number, it looks like a 5, not a 3,

Ah, okay. I wondered why a rumor about a K-3 full frame would show a photo of a K-5.

Finally, We can take good pictures with Pentax Digital Cameras!!!

And also, We dont have to feel that our genitals are inferior in size to all the FF manufacturers!

Maybe we will actually get girlfriends now?

I would say there is a good chance of Pentax using a new 20mp APS-C sensor like in the new Sony A3000 but zero chance of a full frame when the only new lenses are APS-C DA series coming or rumored like the DA 18-70mm f/2.8 lens .

There is a very good chance that Pentax has been working on updates for the FA LTD lenses and they could be released with the new FF body. They just updated the HD DA LTD lenses.

The new 20MP is designed for mirrorless bodies with on sensor PDAF. No reason for Pentax to use that sensor. The rumor is that it will be a 20MP and I just hope it is much better than the 24MP Toshiba. I would prefer to see the 24MP without an AA filter. The 20MP from Sony that got tested by DxO didn't do too well.
