What will the FF be like?

We are fairly certain the FF will be announced soon. But what will it be like? I have identified some of the current "types" of FF cameras, and I wonder where Pentax's will fit. Will it be a heavy, specialized beast, will it be a do-it-all camera, will it be a compact FF? Which type would you actually buy, assuming prices would be similar to its competition (hopefully a little lower)?

Hope I'm not stirring up too much trouble with these questions Seems like we will get a confirmation soon enough anyway

It will be like a Pentax (unfortunately, that option is missing from the poll...)

It might as well be like a ZX-50 or SF1 if Ricoh doesn't come out with any new lenses for it.

My hope is it will be just like a K-3 with a bigger sensor and a tilting screen.

I don't have much of a prediction except that it will probably be similar to existing Pentax cameras which as an adventure and landscape photographer means it's likely to suit me pretty well.

Mostly it depends on what you mean by "soon". Soon by Pentax - it is difficult to say what it means for them.

But... I hope to see instead MF mirrorless 645Z. Size is same as FF with mirror!

...will also be $79.95 & fold into your shirt pocket. That also includes the new "kit" lens, FA* 10-400 f2.8.

And it will take this kind of battery (shown with the optional low capacity option).

What? No f2.0? When will Pentax release fast lenses? Pentax is doomed!

That one wouldn't fit in the shirt pocket; only a 4"x4"x3" case.
