Pentax wouldn't have to look very far to see what specs to include in the FF. D750 ads are splashed all over the Dpreview forums home page. The only sentence it has on the ad is: Send Images directly to your smartphone with Nikon D-SLRs

Apparently, Nikon got the memo on smartphones and wifi. Also highlighted in the ad is the tilting LCD screen. Little doubt the Pentax is going to have a tilting screen with the 645Z already having it. A new day, a new tilting lcd screen.

A friend of mine, who has been committed to getting a D800 has now changed her mind to a D750. Looks like they have cannibailized their own lineup to some degree.

Anyhow, looks like there is plenty of room for Pentax and Sony to price their FF cameras under the D750. Go Pentax!!!

I won't believe a word of it until it's verified on New Camera News, Weekly World Camera News or another authoritative site.

And you really need my help to do that.
That's just my point.. I don't need any help at all, trouble just follows me around.
So why you trying to push me down the slippery slope? off the precipice? playing with the double edged sword that cuts both ways? ... it's not like I wasn't already teetering on the brink.. I'm trying to be good here, you know, walk the straight and narrow, follow the good road, walk in a good way, be kind to others, do unto others as you would have others do unto you... you're not helping

Actually the 645z is a crop sensor camera.

Seriously guys. Pentax already has the 645z which is way beyond any full frame DSLR. Yes it is expensive but so is a top of the line Canon or Nikon body with a lot less pixels.

Pentax has to solve the full frame lens issue before any full frame body. Unless they pull a fast one and intro them at the same time... That would be the day!

FF for Ricoh can (and probably will) become a problem for the system 645 (through cannibalizing) if launched today or in too near future. They have to strengthen the 645 system to have a clear and practical (not only theoretical) positioning on top of the emerging K full frame. It is therefore expected that at first there will be central shutter lenses etc.., ie - what medium format usually is distinguished over the smaller formats. That means the faster we'll see new 645 leaf shutter lenses the better for us who ask for K-full frame.

I will care when it is officially announced. I will get excited when it is released.
In the meantime, I will enjoy what I have.

I'm looking forward to the new full frame Pentax K-M or the K-Maņana to give it its proper name.

That would be a Medium Format not "Full" Frame...

Someone with skills in video editing needs to get the Rick Astley video and replace his face with one of the Ricoh/Pentax guys.
Every interview is pretty much a RickRoll situation...
