Full Frame Pentax Mystery (II)
May 26, 2013

For those who want to continue the discussion about the mystery of the Full Frame from Pentax.

The thread commenced as a discussion of the article published by "Amateur Photographer" (http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/photo-news/539690/pentax-full-frame-dslr-mystery-deepens) where they summarized (I think in a good way) the almost constant change in news from Pentax regarding the possible release of a FF.

In 2012 we heard from Pentax  executives,  just after the last Photokina,  that they were working on the details for a full frame. Those news got a lot of people really excited including myself.  Then, last March news originated from China about the imminent release of a FF or something like that.  Also some rumors came from Australia, when the Pentax distributor of Australia tweeted that a full frame was in its way. also a new rumor came from a blogger from eastern Europe who supposedly was doing some testing for the  Pentax Full Frame.

And then it comes the article from "Amateur Photographer" regarding the news from the UK Pentax office  that there are no comments regarding the news of the imminent release of a FF Pentax.

Then, the original thread brought together a lot of people and very interesting comments about the lack of any firm information from Pentax regarding the development or plan for a full frame. It seems that any time we hear any announcements is just only some hot air (there was also a thread parallel to this one, and for  umpteenth time another rumor that he had a conversation with some sales representatives  and they confirmed the existence of a Pentax FF. A lot of responses in that thread have been that there is not steam gain but more hot air.)

I won't use the term vaporware as it seems a lot of people stick to the traditional definition and they say that Pentax never offered or suggested any product release for a full frame and all we have is wishware or rumorware. Whatever the definition is,  here we are still in the dark as the mystery of a Pentax FF continues to deepen.....

Let's continue the conversation....
