With FF, I hope Pentax can offer somewhat the same. The Nikon D780 is about the same size as a K3iii so it can be done.

The D780 is larger than the K-1.

I might be interested in a FF Pentax, if there was one that was the same size/weight as a K3 series DSLR

The K-1 isn't that big. Now, add a D FA* prime or two...


Yes, I really don't get the push-back on a camera the size of the K-1 for a full frame when the lens size dominates anyway. Now, back in the day when I shot with a Canon 1dIII - THAT was a beast of a camera (and it was aps-h not full frame). I actually downsized to the full-frame 5dIII to get a smaller camera. But with high quality optics, the lenses are large enough that going a lot smaller for a DSLR doesn't really buy me much.

I can understand an aps-c camera with aps-c lenses.

To add a bit from my personal experience, before - with APS-C - I would fill a tiny LowePro Nova 1 shoulder bag; the camera, the DA* 60-250 and 3 DA Limiteds.

Going FF meant I had to buy a backpack. Not because of the camera, but because I replaced the DA* 60-250 with a D FA 150-450
