Between 1500 and 2500, probably in the upper half of that.

Nobody really knows, but looking at the mid-range FF market should give us a general idea if how the Pentax body will be priced. Mid $2000's would be my guess for the launch price.

I think Adam is in the ballpark with something around $2400~2800 at launch, maybe $300~500 lower 12 months after introduction.

Thing is changing. But you definitely cannot buy a old 5D mkt ii for $150.. I guess it will be still worthy around $500 in 2025:-)

$3,000 or $7,000??

Example Nikon D750 and D800 cost $3,000.

Nikon D5 cost $7,000.

14 years ago Pentax FF cost $7,000 but they cancelled because Philip sensor issues!!!

Very reasonable. Better than most people's guesses. The announcement is just around the corner. Start saving up but not as much as you think you should!
