Because the unspoken adjective is "cheap". They want a cheap Ff camera. For some reason they think Pentax can and should deliver a cheaper FF camera than the others. Particularly in the US the lessons of the K01 and Q are clear. Pentax "enthusiasts" won't buy a product until it is reduced to the breakeven point. New product development is driven by profits. Ever wonder why new product development at Pentax is at a snails pace relative the the others? No technical reason, the Pentax faithful allow so little profit that the R&D budget is miniscule. Same story with lenses. That's the name of that tune.
