    u are quite right. it would be suicide for pentax to do so and not just because of a less sophisticated supply chain. even if they flood the shelves with a hypothetical FF pentax camera tomorrow, pple would still prefer to buy from brands they are more familiar with.

    i think the company had said as much through their many interviews, press releases, etc: they will only release FF if they have something that is not offered by the competition.

    but be that as it may, if the first expectation of customers is that it must be "cheaper than C&N", i think its not a good position to be in... if pple think "better value", it could work, but cheap? oh dear...

    They are only concentrating on sonething then you suddenly come change their focus, I think you watch too much dog whisperer. Wake up from dreams and be realistic, pound for pound price for quality. You cant expect them to come out FF and sell you alot of super features but at k5 price

    After having watched that last interview by PentaxForums with the Japanese development guy, i get the feeling that Pentax does not want to meet C or N head-on with an equivalent product. It seems Pentax's idea is always to do something different instead. So those eagerly awaiting FF & hoping to see something similar with a C or N offering, may be disappointed... or pleasantly surprised... but whatever it is, i do not think i'd expect a 5D or D-whatever-x type product coming from Pentax...

    As an amateur pentax user still holding onto my k-x and 35/2.4 dearly (no intentions of changing and shooting actively) I am proud of this brand and the tight community that comes with it.

    While we occasionally criticize the new products, We still hope for the best of this manufacturer, and hope they listen to what end users have to say, so that there could be improvement.

    I'm comfortable with where pentax is heading and am fiercely loyal to this brand (despite admitting that k-01 is outright ugly). There is no need for pentax to mass market and sell out to the masses (then we will be another soulless sell-out)

    So what if people tell me pentax is "ulu / lousy / unpopular / insert negativity"? It's like your girl friend, even if people say bad things about her, you will stick onto her because you are sure about her, right?

    Cheers,

    No offence and ill intention on my post to the Pentaxian Bro... sorry if I done so.... but the only thing free here is dream mah... I also dream N sell D800 at K5 price....5DMK whatever at K5 price...... that goes to show Pentax sells quality stuff at very competitive price....

    And I again stress that K5 with its limited lens (I only use K5 before lar).... is a damn good combination.... anyone looking at a DSLR.... must seriously consider it..... .... I still miss the shuttle sound..... damn....

    like i said earlier, i do not mean any criticism i just find it amusing every time i see "cheap", "FF" and "Pentax" mentioned in the same sentence.

    sorry if i made u feel uncomfortable.

    pple are free to buy, use, sell and do whatever they want with their equipment, and form opinions on their equipment

    N-User found that other equipment suits his needs better and that's fine.

    Pentax is a brand, not a cult.
