No Pentax FF This Year if This Rumour is True!

See what this PF post has quoted and summarised for what is told by a (Pentax) "sales rep." for what new Pentax bodies will still come this year, for what he has posted at a Japanese forum.

So, in short, there are yet two models to come, one lower model than the K 30, which will be more colourful (18 colours) and compact and there is also a new K-5 replacement, which is said to be stronger than the 60D and D7000 and will catch up with 7D and D300S.

Assuming these are true, then there will be no Full Frame in the Pentaxland this year, in 2012, and maybe forever! >:-(

Btw, has already included the K 30 in their comparison database, here is what it is compared to the K-x, which was crowned as the most compact DSLR in its days by Pentax:-,229

Have a look on the actual size difference and this is the robotic textural summary, quoted:-

  • Pentax K-30 is 5% (6 mm) wider and 5% (5 mm) taller than Pentax K-x.
  • Pentax K-30 is 6% (4 mm) thicker than Pentax K-x.
  • Pentax K-30 [650 g] weights 12% (69 grams) more than Pentax K-x [581 g] (*inc. batteries and memory card).

  • Pentax K-30 dimensions: 128.5x96.5x71.5 mm (camera body only, excluding protrusion)
    Pentax K-x dimensions: 122.5x91.5x67.5 mm (camera body only, excluding protrusion)
So, the rumour of a smaller Pentax DSLR is yet believable, as there is still room of making it, after all.
