Since these FF strings are so big here, I'll pitch in my 2¢.

I get all the arguments about price, competition, market share – the to and fro of that.

I do think one basic thing though is that people look at the lovely Pentax FA limiteds and think wouldn't it be nice to put those an an FF like they were meant for.

Agree, and thats why this debate gets so heated and emotional.  Realistically Pentax would probably not make a lot of money from an FF camera.  People can jump up and down, but the future is not in a camera with a sensor based on the size of a piece of film.

More and more people realise that the quality mirrorless and cmall 4/3 and APSc cameras take some pretty damn good photos. the extra cost and weight to get the so called quality of FF is just not a selling point.
