How does k-5 compare to Nikon D700 & Canon 5D MarkII?

While DR & noise to be confirmed.

Spec wise, ISO 51,200 beat even the best of full frame. Right? With smaller steel alloy body, sealed, good control, good FPS, better focus speed, HD video, our beloved Pentax color & limited prime lens.. etc Am I kidding myself to compare it against the big 2 Ful Frame?

Other than the megapixel, smaller DOF due to larger sensor (aka better brokeh) out dated Flash system & lack of professional support on rental gears, what else is missing?

Isn't k-5 a size down FF system for the Non-professionsl at a discounted prices?

Please share your though. Thanks.
