Ricoh's Hint RE: Pentax

Think the hint that Ricoh threw out about something filling a gap coming next year could be a full frame Pentax DSLR?

I've thought about this issue since that statement was uttered. Filling a gap could literally mean anything but I see some fairly big and obvious ones with full frame DSLRS, not only in the market but in Pentax's lineup as well.

It is one of the more obvious "holes" in what Pentax offers. To me it is the next logical step for Pentax, along with more FF lenses to support a new FF DSLR.

I certainly hope they do, I think it's quite possible as they already at least have a few lenses that can be used for full frame duty currently in the lineup. They at least wouldn't be starting from scratch.

Using the K5's design characteristics (not a clone of it obviously) would also be appealing to me.
