What would you call a FF Pentax?

*fist D?

Seriously, I'm thinking of F as a prefix. Don't want to confuse it with Nikon or Canon F1 but something close.

Am I dreaming or something?

I would call it a K-1, or add a letter, K-3n or K-3f or something.

Could also come up with a totally new naming convention (for digital), L-x or something.

Personally, I don't really care what they call it, just that they make it

Re: What would you call a FF Pentax?

my stab at this: Pentax Dl.  D for digital and l for lx or zx-l referring back to two film cameras they had

DL is already used to designate the cheaper lens series of Pentax. However, LXD is sounding good.

I would call it... Pentax FF

Let`s call it naturally: Pentax FF.
They can ad Pentax FF1, FF1s, FF2, FF2sII and so on.

It may be a clever choice, where ever there's a talk on FF, they'll remind of Pentax

Re: A dream...

LX is a classic Pentax name, the name of a fine compact SLR that was highly aspirational to those carrying K1000s and MXs back in the day.

That would be a fine name for a FF Pentax, as would KF..  Or KX-- that's another classic Pentax name that could stand a revival.  The other Old Pentaxian has a nifty old black KX that was a superb camera in its day.

Actually, I vote for that.  Call it KX, and make the new kit lens a modern version of the SMC Pentax 55mm f/1.8, a great lens I always associate with that camera.

Isn't it a bit confusing with KX which was released as a consumer camera a few year back?

Or the version without the AA filter... The Pentax FFs.

I'll get my coat.

Fentax would be closer to the meaning

Re: A dream...

Oops.  Not up on the recent history, I guess. You make a valid point.

I do like "FF" and "KF" just as well.  Actually, you could call it a Ricoh Big Green Frog as long as you give me that compact screw drive 55mm f/1.8!

KF is reserved for current Pentax lens mount
