    I don’t think the Pentax K3 will be FF. I think it will be an APS-C body above the K5II.

    So you spread a rumour, they make a magazine article filled with your and others rumours, and you blog about the article. Well those are confirmed rumours then.

      exactly :)

      That is why the sales of camera (not photo) magazines is declining quite a bit, and not only in Japan! :-)

    Pentax full-frame in april? But what year?

    • Alex

      I see only:

      K-3/
      K-3s

      in the article. I guess “full frame” is purely speculation, and won’t happen – not in April 2013 (far too early for that, if we were to listen to what Pentax are saying).

      It’s actually speculation over that magazine’s speculation, except the Japanese made realistic ones.

    Since Sony just announced the NEX-3N, the F3R looks highly unlikely.

    No any hint that K-3 is FF.

  • PR Rep.

    It’s alletredy confirmed that FF Pentax will show up in April. April 1st.

    I’m most interested in the Fuji and Ricoh anouncements.
    Fuji is absolutely killing it and with the second generation of their X-line camera’s (X-Pro2/X-E2/X100s) most flaws will have been gotten rid of. What’s left: incredible camera’s in a small, beautiful body. I’ll be selling my DSLR setup soon I think.

    So the D7100 actually came exactly as predicted. What was Admin’s best estimate? I recall about the same.
    Could that bode well for the D400?
