Full frame Samsung Camera?

I just read this:

Samsung hints at full-frame sensor for professional digital SLR camera news - Amateur Photographer - news, camera reviews, lens reviews, camera equipment guides, photography courses, competitions, photography forums

And I have to admit, I'm quite excited. If Samsung makes a full-frame digital camera that takes the K mount I'll be quite a happy clam indeed, and I'll be motivated to toss my Canon and go with Pentax.

Old news. Samsung will stay with APS-C and improve it.

Samsung confirms plans for new DSLR news - What Digital Camera

He (Young-Bae Kim, Samsung's Director of DSLR business) did, however play down rumours that Samsung is developing a full-frame (35mm sized) sensor.
“I think we will be staying with the APS-C sensor for now, and developing it further. We believe that there is still much potential to improve the image quality from DSLRs using the existing APS-C sensor and it is very important to Samsung that we continue to do so.”

However, soon or late, Pentax and Olympos will have a FF dual Canon and Nikon and Sony is on the road. That's the trend!

I woudn't bet on an 35mm Olympus any time soon.

Pentax kept the K mount but Olympus dived into a 4/3 mount.

A 35mm Olympus would require even more new lenses than a Pentax one.
