Being an old Pentax film owner, I thought that the LX designation for the upcoming Full Frame Pentax would be appropriate. The LX was always the top of the line, a little bigger and better than the regular film cameras and that distinction seems to fit the placement in the range of the new model.
Yeah, but the LX name was really the Roman numerals for how long Pentax had been in the game. Now, they've been in it 95 years, I think. Will the full frame camera be called the XVC?

You learn something every day

Thanks to the feedback, I learned what the LX designation meant. Also, some people now have more info on grips for the K-30. Teamwork really works.

Wouldn't it be funny if they just called it the Pentax FF? Revised models could be the FFII, FFIII, etc...

How about K-XL - to celebrate 40 (XL) years of the K mount last year, when the camera was meant to be launched
