I'd be tempted if the DR and ISO are high enough!

But... then again, were right back to lenses and I don't think I could justify rebuilding my kits for FF compatibility( I really love my glass!

But that's just me

Yes it is fake and even if it was true, I would not pay that much for it and in all likelihood that is what a pentax FF would cost if not more...

Oh, boy... not again.
We should have a dedicated section, "Dreaming/obsessing about FF" - and keep this section for real news and rumors.

Hell yes. Have some very good primes and full frame will be fun to use those.

No because I've got all DA limited lenses now. And the k-5 is awesome enough.

Agreed. Not interested for at least 2-3 years. I have all the DA Limiteds also and a K5 pending. That seems like the perfect combination.

I do wish they would release something to compete with the DP1/2 or E-P2. I would be much more interested in a K mount mirrorless.

I have more FF lenses than APS-C lenses, and I really would like to have 31mm and not 1.5x31mm :-/ aaaand smaller DOF ... although I must admit that with the K-5 my point for FF (low light) is washed away :-)
