    Pentax 35mm (FF) Sensor - teaser- Northern Spring Release

    http://www.pentax.com/jp/pentaxff/

    BTW I object to FF as a term as Pentax already have a Medium Format 645 series of cameras and since when is Full less than Medium?

    Northern Spring Release...

    From the teasers...


    • K-mount
    • Larger body than K-3
    • NO inbuilt flash


    Rumours...


    • Sony back-illuminated full frame CMOS sensor, which shoots 42.4 megapixel photos at up to ISO 102400
    • ?? Anything else in the rumour mill?

    Mongo hates teasers and rumours ! they should just get on with it if they are going to. Mrs Mongo has been waiting long enough !!

    BTW anything more than about 24 megapixels is probably too much

    It's called marketing

    More megapickels is more

    Hehehe... got ya covered on this one, Kym. I think I'd rather have a full middy of beer than a medium pint any day! Of course if all you've got is (yech) West End, then I guess medium is always gonna be better.

    No, we sell that to people with no taste, eg. interstaters etc.

    More rumors...

    http://photorumors.com/2015/10/13/mo...camera-rumors/


    A Xitek forum member claims that he had beta tested the upcoming Pentax full frame DSLR camera. Here are few details:

    The new camera is not 42MP (I also reported 36MP)
    The AF is very fast
    "There are many AF points than ever"
    SR (Super-Resolution) mode now works handheld and the results are pretty good
    Overall, better experience than the Nikon D810

    http://photorumors.com/2015/10/15/ne...amera-details/

    received this new leaked slide (click for larger view) describing some of the main features of the upcoming Pentax full frame DSLR camera:

    36M full frame sensor without AA filter (previously reported) << Likely I think
    5 axis shake reduction
    645 lens adapter << Kool!!
    SR (Super-Resolution) mode
    Diffraction correction
    x0.78 large finder
    PRIME IV 14 bit processor based on PRIME M2
    The 645 lens adapter means there is a MUCH bigger range of glass

    Oh man .. I shouldn't have read that!

    Now I'm fighting over whether to get a car or spend the $16K, I don't have on the 645Z starter kit!

    ps. the camera is looking good. I hope it does well for the big 'P' brand. I still admire the stuff they used to make(mainly the M42 gear) and have always had a soft spot for the brand.

    Me either.

    With price reductions like that it is becoming even more droolworthy.
