XL is 40 in Roman Numerals. It's 40th anniversary of the K mount ...so why not XL.

Pentax K-24 (because of the sensor size that should be 24x36 mm) that would leave the door open to a sister model later on with more MP for the freaks.
(Both the 24 and the 36 would be even numbers)

But another good guess from a photo - salesman that seems to be a part-time undercover pentaxian... was that they will start to use the even numbers.

One would start out with a 6 in words "SIX" because that is a tack sharp and hot number, if you now what i mean. (you could even make a short wordplay out of "SIX" for some exciting new technology - if something would really get implemented into the first FF) because it only consists out of 3 letters.

I am pretty sure about K-6 (fits perfectly not only because a 6 is the double of a 3)

Again my guess:
K-6, K-4, K-2 - starting out with something new.

There seems to be something with the number 4 in Japan; it was discussed a while ago for the successor of the K5 (if I'm not mistaken). See Japanese superstitions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

yep and if you misspell K2 it means something like dogs bollogs in japanese... but nonetheless there was a K2
according to my florist, even numbers are for the dead
grandma says that when you light yourself a cigarette with a candle, an angel dies in heaven.

I just dont know if a company worth billions gives anything about all this. Despite the fact that Nikon called its professional child D4...

LX D gets my vote.....
I like LX-D, but maybe Ricoh will capitalize on its earlier names with XR-D.

I owned an XR-10 and a truly excellent camera, the XR-P.

Sorry if this has already been discussed. Very keen to see it whatever the name....

they f...... wouldnt dare... they even took off the ricoh signature from the new K-3 body(II)

so i also like LX-D... But only if it features some kind of hybrid viewfinder.... that would give me a link to the LX(for which several Viewfinders where available) there maybe something completely different about the Pentax FF DSLR that sets it above every other cam. But what... If it is some kind of modularity i am with you for sure. LX-D it shall be.

But if not... i already posted how i think about pentax numbering...

I fall in love with Pentax 135D.....but I believe there will be 2 or 3 lines of FF cameras. Like D610/D750/D810. Plus, there should be a FA 135 mount. Still, is the best name so far.

Number 4 in japan is the "dead" number. When you count, is Ichi, ni, san, SHI, go (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). But thay say Ichi, ni, san, YOON. Its like floor number 13 in the apartment buildings. If someone skip a WHOLE name in a floor name list, in a million dollar proyect as an apartmen building, I believe they skip the 4 in the names in a product line.
