I had a test shot comparison with a fullframe with my friend camera ...the overall quality colour detail was really nice.... cropped is good but until you had a fullframe to compare you see it for yourself ..but now there in 645 .. wonder when Pentax version K8s Mark iv fullframe XXXL sensor size in small body will come..

P3ntx, why are you talking about FF when the news is about the K-x?
Look, I'm sure FF can deliver nice pictures BUT... you have to cough up a lot of money for that FF body, maybe 4 to 6 times the cost of a K-x body. Secondly you got to spend more for good lenses because what's the point of having cheap crap lenses as the weakest link. Thirdly say goodbye to small form factor and light weight. You want FF, please give Canon/Nikon/Sony a try, just don't complain about having a lighter wallet.

That Pentax can come up with a budget wonder says a lot. More people will happily invest in the K-x than any FF camera because it gives the most bang for the buck. Frankly if I was using a FF camera (which I'm not), I'd be pissed big time that an entry level camera can offer great image quality at a fraction of the cost.

Congrats K-x owners...

Also has this experience before, my Pentax beats the drum when when do night shoot compare until he got a fullframe .. we compares pixel peep LCD.. he wins. But the colours from his indoors shots was very horrible .. I tried to handled his white balance they seem always look the same no matter how you adjust cannot see different. Different environment you got different results maybe I don't know correct way to do it.. .

Overheard that Pentax is trying to build fullframe, but the chip has to very fast because in-body shake reduction, if not shutter got stucks, one problems will lead to another. The OP guy told me. how true or just prophecy s stil ???

I am a proud Pentaxian, what wong with talking about Fullframe - when KX-wins , it means if KX can do it Pentax Fullframe will make it someday. I have been acuumulating fund for years to acquire FA* Lens for fullframe hope until I got almost broke ...because I love the output.

Creampuff I already owned most FA* you don't even know - but I lack a body to utilise it by the time hopefully I can afford...

Don't you know Pentax even just lauched the 645 very successfully ... why can't they do fullframe, do you think Pentax is stucked wit Kx success??

Aside The FF costed him about 1.4 body only.

If compare pixel peep lcd, then it's not accurate. Full frame or some models have higher resolution than K-X for their lcd, which surely looks 'nicer' on lcd.
I think you could be right! KX wins in cost/performance - DXO lab also tested to show higher dynamic range than K7
