    Possible lo... Nikon D600 could do it.. Pentax one will cost S$1999.99 with kit lens made out of 100% plastic parts including plastic lens, fixed aperture f/4 and f/8 only, Holga-style!

    No pop up flash and no LED screen(as small as film days right?), single dial, single AF point(cross sensor though!), and bam! No pop up flash! How cool and unique will that be!! All for S$1999.99!
    What's a LED screen?

    You need the WR flash because? Anyways I think the hotshoe would definitely need to be covered.
    maybe he wants to explore his artistic limits by taking portrait shots in the rain?

    Haha! That's what many of those guys over at "the other forum" seems to want mah... LoL! "As small as MX/LX.." I think they're forgetting that the space taken up by the screens is pretty substantial.

    Because there are some idiots out there who also wants this feature without thinking hard enough on what flash photography in the rain actually means.. LoL!

    All in all, nah.. Just a simple sarcasm to them fools who's baying for a Pentax FF with features that are unrealistic.

    Oh, if that's the case then I want the FF camera to come with Doraemon pouch. No need to carry camera bag. Can also hold tripod. I just put the camera and barang barang into the black hole pouch and draw it out when needed.

    wishlist:

    if the rumoured APS-C GRD 5 comes with WR capabilities...

    please take my money if this happens

    There was a paper medium format camera available, but using film.

    LoL! That's nothing to it la bro... Better things have been done in that sense.. Google up large format DIY.. LoL! I think Pentax can do that and sell it for $500! They'll throw in a solid tripod and perhaps an umbrella at the top for you even! LoL!

    Ok... This is getting funny and nonsensical.. Haha! Whatever that Pentax wants to do, let them.. Currently I suppose most are pretty happy with the available offerings.

    I think one with LPF and one without is the most likely.

    A $1k is definitely possible without many compromises. I wouldn't mind a K-30 with a 135 sensor for a few $ more. The claim (larger) sensors would be much more expensive is pure marketing.

    Sensor is make of silicon wafer & it's very expensive. As per area increases will increase the cost as well.

    From here, it says:

    Production costs for a full-frame sensor can exceed twenty times the costs for an APS-C sensor.[citation needed] Only 20 full-frame sensors will fit on an 8-inch (200 mm) silicon wafer, and yield is comparatively low because the sensor's large area makes it very vulnerable to contaminants—20 evenly distributed defects could theoretically ruin an entire wafer. Additionally, the full-frame sensor requires three separate exposures during the photolithography stage, tripling the number of masks and exposure processes.[7]

    Yes but the APS-C sensor is not expensive to start with. An image sensor is a rather simple circuit compared to other CMOS devices today. Anyway, since there is more needed to make a good camera they will milk us 10 more years before they will put FF sensors in cheaper bodies to produce finally equally good pictures at a much lower price point.

    If so you better create a storm in pentaxforum say a new factory coming this year somewhere from aug to sept that it is gonna make pentax FF at under 800 but hor you must post on 1st day of april wahahaha.

    Anyway whatever they come up or out with, we just be happy if it can attract those who don't know pentax. Everyone in the industries will have something in their sleeves if now whole world know then it will be boring
