    Fortunately for me I still keep a few FF lenses, 20-35, 24-50, 50 & 77. Currently I used them on my A7r. So all these can last me until I retire from shooting.

    The top of the camera where the prism viewfinder is, looks so sharp and pointy. Wonder how they are going to put the flash hot shoe there? Is that why they name it the Unicorn?

    If I can nitpick, the only thing I find not nice is it looks damn squarish, especially at the mode dial area there. BUT that's my personal "sexy factor" ah.. Hahaha!

    Anyway, if it really is true, then I guess the only thing I can share is, for those who are even giving it 1% consideration of getting it, please, grab whatever A lenses you can right now. Especially those el cheapo A28/2.8, A35/2.8, A50/2 or 1.7, etc..

    Coz flippers gonna have a ball of a time soon.. LoL!

    Nice! Have the image cropping function for use of DA lenses. Just what I am looking for.

    Please note that this image of the Pentax FF is from the archives of DPReview(as stated in the DPR news) of a FF Pentax announced in 2001-which did not make it into production.

    It's ok as long as DA lens can be used meaning the FF sensor either shift frontwards or something internal to crop. Well start saving for my target 150-450 also
