*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.

It's the singer not the song.

A mirage or TLTL (Too Little Too Late) or BLTN (Better Late Than Never), or it could be named 2046, the year it will finally be made.

Re: FD: Final Destination

Sometimes the best answers are the simplest and most obvious ones .

What about just calling it the Pentax FF ?

Sure, as you may have noticed, it's one of first suggestions in this thread, and a winner too.

Definitely unnecessary since eventually all of the people who want a full frame will buy another brand, so why bother building a FF Pentax.

Obviously K-something

It would be based on the K-mount, obviously, and need to distinguish itself from the APS-C K-# camera naming system ...

K-Alpha

K-1 (sullied by the K-01 unfortunately)

K-Super or Super K/K1

K Mk I

Sony really has no place in this discussion.

Also, I don't see how this is a reply to OzDean and I.

It does, because it is a full frame that works with all Pentax K mount lenses.

Works with all K-mount lenses...unless you want AF or aperture control, let alone Pentax ergonomics or RAW quality. Sure most of the FF-capable lenses have aperture rings but honestly, why bother with MF and stop-down metering every time you want to slap an FA ltd on there?

I prefer shooting manual focus lenses on the A7/R than I do any SLR body. They are easier to focus and metering is perfect.

The only thing you really lose in this case is AF.

Using the A7R I get full TTL flash support with any lens ever, plus TTL is very accurate when your imaging sensor is your light meter.

+1.  My PK/A 50mm f/1.4 never had autofocus anyway.

Won't matter what it's called

DPR still won't review it until it's outdated!

Gee. I have ordered a K NEX adapter.

And I have a much coveted AF280T Pentax flash (TTL) and a whole pile of Pentax prime lenses. I do BIF with manual lenses so manual focus is just right on for me .

Do you think it (AF280T) works with Alpha 7 as TTL??????

LXD?????    How about LSD?????  Now that would make some people dream...........

Seriously, LXD actually would be an excellent name. It would project serious business on behalf of Pentax. Meaning, back to the pro class. Just like the good old LX was.

Another candidate might be SuperD, after the cute Pentax SuperA (Super Program in US). I liked that camera a lot, it was sturdy, handsome and projected some serious appeal with the Motor Drive A attached. It shared duties with my LX.

Best, AIK
