Strictly rumor: Pentax 35mm full-frame DSLR and APS-C EVIL to come in 2012

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I last posted here. Got a new job this summer and have been busy since. But today I heard a rumor from a usually reliable source that I feel the obligation to share with everyone here:

According to my source, Pentax will release a 35mm full-frame DSLR and an APS-C EVIL (mirror-less) in 2012. No other details were given except that the source seemed to believe the full-frame model will likely use a Sony 24MP sensor. I'd assume this is a new version of the sensor used in the Sony A900. I hear separately that Sony has another 36MP full-frame sensor which has been rumored to be at the heart of a Nikon D800(?). If the rumored Pentax full-frame model uses a 24MP sensor that has similar or improved DR and high ISO performance as the K-5 sensor, I'd be more than happy.

Now I need to hang on more tightly to my full-frame glasses including the FA*28-70、FA*80-200、FA*85/A*85/FA77、FA*200、FA31 and FA43!

That's all I have for now. Please keep in mind that this is just a rumor and nothing more.

Have a great weekend,
