Hmmm, should I not buy a "cheaper" D3x when the D4 is launched or wait for Pentax to do a FF?

Probably a no brainer.

I think for the near future it's safer to praise the better late than never performance of the K-5 than start thinking about a FF Pentax.

Only speaking for myself, if they do produce a FF in the future, I'd probably have to give it a miss as by then, I'd be fully covered with alternate FF glass.

Unfortunately, Pentaxians have a similar life span to other brand users and luckily for the others, they have a choice already. (though not with MF).

Best regards

The Kodak is CCD, while they are great for photos they can do video and that's pretty much a must these days

What kind of sensor is the aptina one?
they talk about CCD images and CMOS performance... new type of sensor?

I don't know... was hoping you did.

I'm just looking at what's new and wondering what happens if Pentax decides to look other than Sony for sensors.....

I've always thought that if Hoya decided to sell Pentax then Kodak would be a 'dark horse' candidate, but that's just my craziness

This is interesting:
Quote:
KODAK TRUESENSE Color Filter Pattern. This advanced technology provides a 2x to 4x increase in light sensitivity compared to a standard Bayer color sensor by adding panchromatic (or “clear“) pixels to the standard red, green, and blue elements that form the image sensor array.

Yes sorry
Although maybe they can do it... a bit worried about the heat though
