Re: I hope it's APS-C but FF would be interesting too

Most of my lenses would be irrelevant on FF. On the other hand, I would imagine my DA 40 would become my most relevant lens.

I read somewhere that a 1.4 teleconverter makes an APS-C lens more like an FF lens. Is this true? (I also have mostly APS-C lenses).

(The teleconverter on the roadmap is already on my wish-list!)

My reality is that I don't need FF nor do I need more IQ. The K5 produces output that exceeds my needs. The high ISO is already fantastic. More would be better, I suppose.

Yes. It appears that a combination of better sensors and better software noise reduction is more than keeping track with my increasing expectations. If this continues, then I may never need FF.

(But if I could fit most of my current lenses on it I would probably get it without a real need for it!)
