Damn, it’s a long time we didn’t post some weird Pentax Full Frame camera rumor. So let’s keep the dream well alive with some more (likely fake) Pentax FF rumors
Apparently Pentax Russia said there will be certainly a Pentax FF camera in 2014 (Source: Pentax Russia forum).
And on the usually very (un)reliable dpreview forum you can read that entry:
“The rumour mill is busy with talk of a retro style Pentax LX full frame coming soon. Pretty similar in fact to the anticipated new Nikon retro F3 coming in two weeks. Both of these old cameras looked fairly identical actually as well as also featuring interchangeable viewfinders, so will that carry forward into the new digital versions? The main difference with the retro-Nikon F3-D (for want of a name at this point) in the speculation as far as I can see is it will be standard SLR F mount, while the new retro-Pentax LX-D will adopt a whole new shorter flange A-mount (A for Ace, after K and Q), which will allow two adapters for legacy K mount lens – one for manual focus with metering etc, and a more expensive motorised adapter for auto focussing as well. So basically the Pentax will be able to take short-flange lenses while the Nikon will not, so the question for all us Ricoh users is will this become the successor to the GXR we’ve been waiting for?“
Don’t worry, next fake Pentax FF rumors coming in a couple of months 😉
