    As Nikonist myself, I expect for some kick in the butt for both Canon and Nikon, because they seem to lag behind in so many areas. Sigma does the stuff and so does Fuji.

  • mooh

    The term “not aborted” doesn’t read write, as if someone’d expecting it to be aborted.

      It’s a Chinese to English translation from a Japanese to Chinese translation… any nuance was lost in the process, twice.

    “Not aborted”, buy stillborn?

    They are also saying that the DSLR’s The Q and the WG series will remain to be named Pentax. Lower end Compacts may be another story (not clear) I presume the MX-1 line will also remain. Also Pentax will not automatically adopt a 24mp sensor because the competition does. The whole package has to be right, not just the pixel count.

    Even continents move faster than Pentax 😀

    I think their APS-C sensor line is great. But I can’t stop posting this, I hope they update their 645D soon or least make a mention of it. Willing to buy 645 lenses before their price goes up on it’s release.

    “Our development team is still working on it and the project is not aborted”.

    Word “still” is missing from this optimistic statement.

      no its not, its right there, after ‘is’ and before ‘working’

  • Frank N. Blunt

    Pentax HAS not given up…

  • Kim

    Oh yeah? Who cares about Pentax FF…

  • Gogol

    As a Nikonist! i would love to see a Pentax full frame… since the K5 is so much better then the Nikon d7000 and Canon 5D.
