In a post on its Facebook page, Ricoh Imaging’s France outpost wrote in no uncertain terms that the development of a full-frame Pentax DSLR is underway, according to Photo Rumors. Two people aired their discontent over Ricoh’s apparent lack of full-frame, but Ricoh smoothed their ruffled feathers with a promising announcement. Of course, there’s no word on what the specs are and when this will actually come to be, but Pentax enthusiasts rejoice, full-frame is on its way.
Check out the Facebook posts below.
Here are approximate translations:
Tony Bruce: I’m tired of waiting! No Full Frame, bye bye Pentax!
Ricoh Imaging France: The full frame camera is under development right now! We’ll keep you posted on this page.
Emmanuel Rolland-Photographe: Still no single format on the horizon. What a pity that Pentax/Ricoh doesn’t deal with the wishes of its customers. Personally, I’m starting to get tired of this lack of interest, and I think I will turn to another brand.
Ricoh Imaging France: Great news that will delight those who expected a full-frame Pentax: product development has been launched!
