I think that they should keep it simple and catchy.. something easy to remember.. K1.. KF .. something like that, if they start adding letters and numbers it could be a mess at the begining for people that is not used to the brand.. so, something simple as K1 or KF.. they can release future models as KFii KFiii and so on ..

I dunno about the name, but I wanted to see what a brushed aluminum name plate like the 645z would look like.
love it.

Since the camera resemble a Pentax 67II, it would be great if it uses the 67II font and just name it '35'!

The Pentax 135 does have a nice ring to it, but if people hate the red ring, they'd probably flip their lid if Ricoh dropped the K moniker.

To follow the lead of "645Z" as someone noted could be 35Z or 135Z, but could also be 2436Z or K2436Z or K2436D, but I still suspect something like KPRO or KF or KDF. I agree with filoxophy that the designation will start with "K," then have some designation for the model such as "F" or "FF" but my guess would be "PRO," and I think no more than that. The first member of a new model rarely includes a "1" as it implies planned obsolescence, that is: "we're already designing the camera that you wish this one was, but buy this now and you can replace it with what you really wanted in 18~24 months."
How I hope someone at Ricoh has been attentive to the endless posts here stating what design features Pentax owners hope to find in the first FF model.
They would NOT use "KDF." That was the Nazi abbreviation for their "Kraft durch Freude" ("Strength Through Joy") organization.

Such a pity it's been copyrighted. Hope they don't call it "K-Super" or "Super-K." Seems like Americans attach "super" to almost everything.

It would sound pretty much like a 1980s infomercial...the New and Improved Pentax Super K1000D!
