Why everyone asking for FF? Why not to buy wider lenses?
Why nobody asking for a reliable flash metering, fast autofocus from Pentax? At moment I considering Nikon 600 or Canon 6. But not for FF, but for latter reasons. FF just for the reason, that prices are close to a crop sensor. I do a lot of shooting job indoors with a low light. But Pentax will stay No1 for travel photography.

I already have wide lenses that will be even wider on FF . I find wider lenses more useful than longer ones .

While that is a benefit , I want FF to get back that big , bright viewfinder I was used to on my film SLR's .

Fast AF ? Try an MZ-S : it uses the same AF system as was carried over into the digital bodies , yet it snaps instantly into accurate focus where the digital bodies would struggle .

I also don't have trouble with my flash exposures , finding them just as reliable as with Nikon cameras using the same Metz flashes .

No , for me it is the big viewfinder and the ease of use that will come with it , plus the increase in image quality ( everything else being equal ) will not be entirely unwelcome .
