So... How do I grip this thing? Ergonomics is way off.

(But we all know a proper FF is nowhere in sight, don't we)

It does look a little like the MZ-S (in the DPReview pix), and I certainly have good things to say about that camera.

Darn... you really got me excited when I saw the thread title.

This was the original FF prototype in 2000 that was based on the MZ - S but because the sensor used was from PHILIPS, it was very noisy and it did not take off. The only company that used that sensor is now no longer around. If you guys remember the Contax N1, that was its last camera before it went belly up.

If Pentax had used that sensor, there would not be a Pentax camera for us now.

Confirm this is an April Fool's Day joke.

I guess many are waiting patiently for the Pentax FF DSLR to come one day.
I am still keeping some good old lenses from film camera era.
