New Pentax FF will NOT be a 42 MP!

We have new details about the upcoming new Pentax FF here:
http://forum.xitek.com/thread-1508304-1-1-1.html

And it will not be a 42 MP!
As i said before, Pentax will keep the 36 MP, cheaper and completely improved for great results (pixel shift?).
Price could be agressive around 2000 €

The above is pure disinformation from RiceHigh. The guy who posted on Xitek

http://forum.xitek.com/thread-1508304-1-1-1.html

nowhere pretends to be a beta-tester of the incoming Pentax 24x36 camera. He says himself that the above are pure dreams/speculations from his part that he uses as a preamble to a poll on the attitude to have vis-à-vis a launch postponed to Spring 2016 (wait / jump ship / wait until Chinese New Year / wait until April 1st / wait until May 1st). He uses once the word 'speculation' (猜测) and eight times the word 'dream' (梦).

I hope this rumor is true.
I can't affort to buy a FF camera for 3000 € or 4000€ with a FF lens.
This is madness (and suicidal) if they do it.

All you have to do is go to the original link and halfway down the post is this line "Via Ricehigh". Can't think of a less reliable source.
