Also Tamron to be bringing out new range of lenses for the new camera apparently...although these are said to be according to a Tamron Rep. Make of it what you will.

New Tokina 24-70 f2.8 as well... Although only Nikon and Canon mounts could you forsee an HD D-FA*24-70 coming along soon?

APS-C outsells FF in any make by about 10:1 so why would Tamron even consider Pentax FF when they aren't interested in the bigger APS-C market.

I did hear a rumour that Pentax are bringing out a FF Slide Scanner

Both Sony and Nikon make (more catered to) entry level full-frame that isn't priced much higher than Pentax. Which is one reason that Sony full-frame outsells all of Pentax

Are you saying that one Sony camera sells more than all of Pentax combined?
Where do these figures come from?

Sony have more than one full frame camera, I imagine if you put all the sales together they would outsell all of Pentax.

Possibly, though 50mpCMOS did single out 'entry level FF' as being the reason.

OK, but I'd still like to know the source - out of curiosity.

Obviously dreamt it Hardly anybody buys Sony FF even in Japan where mirrorless is quite popular.

The only sales are to a few Pentax defectors.

Should have been the Sony A6000 outsells ALL Sony FF

There isn't ONE SONY FF in the current weekly TOP 80 in Japan. Pentax are selling quite well with a few in the Top 40 although the prices are very low. The K-3 + 18-135 for instance (at 37) is a mere 610

Nice to see my K50 is the best-selling Pentax in Japan! Well deserved, it's a cracker.
