Reason Behind the Delay of Pentax Fullframe Camera

Pentax-Fullframe-camera-wit
Finally we came to know the actual reason behind the delay in the announcement of the Pentax fullframe camera. The FF camera has been delayed due to the Pentax K-II callback. According to the Pentax representatives the production line can’t handle the callback and production of Pentax Fullframe camera at the same time.

Pentax-ricoh-camera-image

Just two months after the announcement many of the Pentax K-3 users started complaining about the K-3 faulty switch of button, according to the users the power off button fails to switch off the camera and due to that camera never shut-down and battery drains up too quickly. Rioch / Pentax offered free inspection and repair of affected cameras. To check the fault you must see the back of your camera to check the serial number and if you camera with a serial number of 6206660 (or above it) than it is not affected by the problem.
