Excellent then, we'll all be able to get two of them and avoid having to change lenses at all, plus fit everything in the camera bag..... Thanks Pentax!

After all, the more cameras you can squeeze into your camera bag the better.
Pentax camera shopping algorithm:
1. Buy a large bag
2. Buy one or two 645Zs, put them in the bag
3. Buy enough FFs to fill up the remaining space
4. Is there still some room? Buy K-3IIs to fill up the space
5. A bunch of Qs are needed for the smallest gaps

They're evil...

Here's a picture of the FF with the new 24-70 lens attached compared to a K3 also with the 24-70. Just for size comparison.

They look very similar in size. The K-3 almost looks larger, particularly across the top.

The K-3 only looks larger because of the field of view. Look where the right edge of the lens hits the full frame and where it is on the K-3. The FF is, as expected, larger than the K-3.

Nevertheless, the FF body is very (VERY!) compact. At most only a few mm larger in some dimensions than a K3. That's a laudable achievement considering the major increase in sensor size.

FUGLY? Nope. Skinny, shiny hipster plates are Fugly.

AP?

I think it is fine looking but most cameras are boring looking. I tend to not care since I look through them not at them.

I think it looks beastly, in a good way. It looks like a serious tool. Not like a toy camera.

It's very short on the left side, but that's consistent with current Pentax DSLR's. Remember when the lens was roughly centered on a camera body? A left side grip, gone with the 35mm film cassette.

Sure hoping this will compete or exceed the Nikon 810. I am pondering upgrading my long lens for the k3....but would feel more comfy if I had more detail on the FF.

More dollars for a long lense or pick up a 810 and use the wife glass.....hmmmm
