Upgrading from GF1: K-5 or Full Frame?

Hi!

After buying a GF1 with a 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens I'm finding my current Canon DSLR getting dust. The only things that I'm really missing in the GF1 are: fast focus system and high ISO performance.

Since Pentax has some lovely primes (Limited Series) the K-5 seems a good option. But will it really provide a significant step up in quality when compared with the GF1? Or should I move directly to a Canon 5D Mk II (I already have a good set of primes and zooms)?

Your comments are much appreciated.

Thanks!
