Is this the year Pentax makes or breaks your FF dream?

Re: What Rod said Mark

OK, so I'm not in touch with the MF market and I missed one that was smaller. Is it comparable to a FF DSLR though?

The part I really consider impossible is the cost issue. Making the box smaller doesn't automatically cut the costs by any significant fraction. Leaving out the mirror and viewfinder might make a noticeable difference, but if it were that significant don't you think the manufacturers would be jumping all over it already? And if you could do it for MF you could do it for FF as well, negating any advantage. Again, it's not like Pentax knows any secrets that aren't available to the other makers.
