I read the article and there where a few interesting things:

" Our long term strategy is towards FF while short term strategy is increasing line-up in APS-C segment."

So there will be more APS-C dslr's. Entry level? above K-5?

"As to time frame, it (FF) is under advanced development towards 2013 or later. You can expect that."

But exactly what will their approach be? Weather sealing and a new lens lineup with smaller lenses than the competition is a given but what else?

"Meantime, mirrorless segment is moving forward to smaller size. Even though there was possibility to bring FF into this segment, it was our conclusion that APS-C should be the utmost size for mirrorless segment."
They considered making a FF mirrorless system but decided not to. APS-C mirrorless? Is it the GXR, the K-01 approach or something different?

They stated that loosing the AA-filter is the future and not only in Medium format and APS-C. Are compacts with no AA coming?

"Meantime, we have been developing another technology for even better IQ which has different approach than w/o AA."

Sounds interesting.

They will also be working hard on bringing out more Q and 645 lenses and are working on successors for the 645D and Q10.
