I just recieve a message from the Ricoh Imaging Community if I understand correctly it's huge :


Topic: Full Frame- Market Launch 2015 (2 Updates)

Re: Full Frame- Market Launch

BTW the mirrorless be provided with contacts for a fully functional and ergonomically designed battery grip and let the third party manufacturers ( like matabones or fotodiox ) design couplers for non K mount lenses

Re: Full Frame- Market Launch

Offer different models. A full featured DSLR for professionals. An affordable stripped-down model DSLR like a full frame version of K30 ( remove video recording if necessary to keep the price low as new video processing engine to drive full frame sensor and new design to dissipate heat may not be necessary ) and a thinner full frame version of K01 r provided with electronic coupler (or adapter to accept old and current K lenses ) with EVF. With this, the mirror less model will be ready to accept other lens mounts

It's not ONE but THREE Full Frame OMG

Is this from Ricoh/Pentax or just a rumor or fantasy wish of a poster? If real it would be very exciting. But it it looks a lot like somebody's fantasy list. Anyway, thanks for sharing.

That actually would be a huge marketing win. As it is the FF will get some coverage but it will more be tongue in cheek "finally" type of reporting. But to hit the market with 3 distinct models at the one time would cause a massive stir. Especially the mirrorless as you will get the Canikon crowing about how they are being left behind.

Well, unfortunately, my speculation in my earlier post turns out to be correct. The text is just from two guys day dreaming about what they hope will happen. No info from Pentax at all. RIAC seems to have become moribund.

Well, yes, but what many of us fear is that the uncertainty caused by the long silence will cause sales to be lost to the A7Rii which will be in peoples hands several months before the Pentax FF is promised to be available. They really should try to put out some information to try to stave off that exodus. By now they must have the specs firmed up even if they are still working on firmware. Just some indication of features, sensor size etc.

Unfortunatly I take a Ricoh Imaging Community notification for the News Letter of Ricoh Imaging Company it is not an annoucement it only the wish of a Pentax user

I am deeply sorry for the confusion but it look like so logical and the post look like an announcement it was easy to make the mistake

I fully agree your opinion.

Perhaps. But they have already announced the FF so information about it should not impact the ASP-C cameras any more than it already has.

I actually would love to see a K-01 full frame version but I suspect it is only a dream.

Pentax did completely surprised the market once by introducing 3 completely new full frame, k-mount, cameras at the same time. I believe Pentax is the only camera company ever to do that.

It would be a wonderful deja vu if it happened again.

They simultaneously had three 'S' cameras.
