Confirmed: Pentax Full-Frame DSLR is Officially Underway

According to Photography Blog, the development of a Pentax full-frame DSLR camera is officially underway. This news is confirmed by Ricoh’s European Product Manager Laurence Bouly in a recent interview.

The price, specs, announcement of this new Pentax Full-Frame DSLR have NOT been set yet, but Bouly said the official announcement of this DSLR could be held through the usual formal channels, rather than a social networking site such as Twitter or Facebook. And, the rumors said Pentax Full Frame DSLR will be announced in 2015.

Actually, several days ago, Ricoh Imaging France confirmed that the development of a full-frame DSLR camera had begun through a Facebook post. See the translation below:

The full-frame is in development at this very moment! We will keep you informed on this page!

Great news that will delight those who have been waiting for a Pentax full-frame : the product development is underway!

In addition, Pentax displayed two new K-mount DFA prototype lenses at Photokina 2014: one is a high magnification super-telephoto zoom lens (range of 100–400mm), and the other is a large diameter telephoto zoom lens (range of 70–200mm), which also indicates it is true.

That’s really an exciting news for ever-patient Pentax users.
