IBIS is the road block to Pentax FF...
Sep 25, 2012

While reading all of the interviews over Photokina, one item stuck out. One of the Pentax execs said that the DA lenses were not FF just larger to accommodate the movement the sensor's IBIS. This means that if Pentax does come out with a 24 Megapixel FF camera, it can not have IBIS as the sensor would go out of the image circle of even the best FA lens out there.

This is the conundrum for Pentax and why we are not seeing any hint of FF coming from their lips. They went the IBIS route with APC because it could be done with a slight increase in lens size while all the other FF and APC manufacturer's went with in lens stabilization. IBIS can not be done on FF so what is Pentax to do. Release a non-stabilized body to go with all the non-stabilized lenses. This has to be the crux of the problem and why of all the manufactures using Sony sensors, Pentax is the lone camera company with no FF.
