Why does Pentax FF have to truly be FF?
May 25, 2012

With all this speculation about Pentax going FF and whether the gorgeous DA Limiteds will or won't work without vignetting, it made me think there has to be some sort of happy medium that would be acceptable to still use the DA lenses. I find it difficult to believe that Pentax would hold prices high on lenses that will potentially have much less appeal when a FF camera was released.

Could a "compromise" FF camera be in the works, with perhaps a 1.1x or 1.2x crop factor? Or would the proposed FF camera automatically compensate for each lens, cropping as needed?

Just speculation on my part, since everyone else seems to be doing so (as we're all entitled).
