Lots of rumors about the Pentax Full Frame, but some disappointment about its late release.


 Hi Photographer friends,

There is a lot of speculations and rumors about the upcoming Pentax Full Frame DSLR. I am disappointed that its release has been postponed to the spring, as it was supposed to be announced on October 6th. Rumor has it that the delay was caused by problems they had to fix on the Pentax K-3II!

I personally would have preferred the new Full Frame to the upgraded. Ricoh Theta S. The theta, which I have, is more of a gadget than a serious camera. It's fun for a little while but I don't think it will change the photographic world. Of course, this is just my opinion, and some of you might see that as a great innovation.

The Ricoh GRII kit was introduced lately, but it doesn't add any capability to the compact camera. Perhaps Ricoh is buying time for us to be patient in waiting for the Full Frame.

Here are some of the rumors:
Looking at the 3 layers composition, I am wondering if they are going to use a foveon sensor!

So...what happened to October 6th?

Thanks for reading,
