Re: Why Pentax Need a New Mount Now
In reply to 6x9, Nov 15, 2013

I've come to this thread a bit late, and i'm sure someone else has already pointed this out - the K mount is not a 'potential' full frame mount - it IS already a full frame mount (unless 35mm film somehow isn't full frame). Sure it's not currently being used for ff but it certainly allows the required coverage.

(apologies to anyone else who also has a bunch of old Pentax lenses and has an LX, MX, K1000, etc, lurking in a cupboard and has already said all of this)

If you mean full-frame-with-short-registration-distance (like the new Sony A7) then, sure, a new mount is required.
