#2. The new full frame Pentax will have the Sony 42 MP sensor from the a7RII.

#3. Tamron will be adding new Pentax K mount lenses because of the above.

Update: According to Kenneth Baluba Sporsheim (Ricoh ambassador), the Pentax full frame DSLR camera was delayed because of the K-3 II power-off issue:

    Bull…. no way they will offer it for 3.000Euro, freakin spanish folks at pentaxeros spread the rumor it will be 2.000€ . But they dont have any clue. They are just good at faking photos(pimping) of the 3D Print of the “maybe” new Body of Ricoh-Imagings new K-Mount FF product…

    if they do(3grand????), they dont stand any chance against Nikons and Sonys hordes…. i mean c’moun 1.700 for a factory fresh FF-DSLR… Sony with its “Spotmatic of the 21Century” -A7- in all different flavors which are starting at 1.000 Euro and top out at 2.000 for the top-of-the-notch models??? Not any chance this will have a happy end if it costs 3.000 Euros … you maniacs… And hey, there is not that much difference to an APS-C model… so how would they justify that pricing? And did Pentax ever officially say anything about 42MP….? No. never… Wait… see … buy or don’t buy!
