Just yesterday was it announced that Pentax is developing a full frame K-mount DSLR and a rumored specs list has already surfaced.

The yet-to-be-named camera is said to include a 36MP sensor and an ISO range of 100-102,400.

All of the current Pentax DSLR models use Sony sensors, so going with the 36MP option will not come as a surprise.

There is no mention of weatherproof features, but this is pretty much a given when it comes to Pentax bodies.

Photo Rumors posted the following specifications, received from a source in Asia:

  • TYPE : Digital SLR Camera
  • SENSOR : 36 Megapixel CMOS Full frame without lowpass filter
  • FRAME: Pentax KAF3 with stainless steel bayonet
  • SYSTEM APPROACH : SAFOX XI with phase detection with 27 pts (25 in cross and 3 of f2.8 )
  • VISOR : pentaprism Coverage: 100 % LCD
  • DISPLAY: 3.2 “TFT swing
  • EMBEDDED FLASH : No
  • EXTERNAL FLASH : Zapada (P- TTL ) high-speed sync and wireless compatible with Pentax flashes – take X -sync
  • STORAGE : 2 SDXC
  • STABILIZATION : Sensor system with reduced movement and rotation compensation system ( 3.5EV TBD)
  • MEASURING SYSTEM LIGHT : TTL using a 86000 pixels RGB sensor
  • ISO Sensitivity : 100-102,400

 

After waiting so long for a Pentax full frame DSLR, would you be satisfied with these specs?
