Comment

It’s no secret that Ricoh has a full frame Pentax DSLR up its sleeve. The camera is set to debut in the Spring of 2016, and a 24-70mm lens has already been announced for the body.

If you’re looking forward to this camera, this may whet your appetite even more: the first sample photos captured using the camera have been published.

Ricoh today updated the Pentax full frame camera’s website with a new teaser image of the top of the body (shown above) and two sample shots. Here’s the intro to the camera:

The new Pentax 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera is equipped with an image sensor for 35 mm full-size images and uses the K-mount lens system. The camera is compatible with all K-mount lenses, such as the FA lenses, which can be used with the same angle of view as with 35mm film cameras. As for the APS-C-size image sensor, the DA lens series, the cropping function makes it possible to use the APS-C-size center portion of an image. By changing the settings, you can also choose a 35mm full-frame angle of view. The D FA lens series—which is beautifully suited to digital images—covers all of these capabilities, including, of course, the 35-mm full-size angle of view.

Click these following sample shots to see them in a slightly larger size:
