It believe it was a number of years between the K5 and K5ii.

2 years, from Photokina 2010 to Photokina 2012. But this doesn't mean the next APS-C flagship  will take another 2 years.

So I think it only makes sense to get the K5ii now and not wait.

If the rumors are to be believed, Pentax has been busy developing a full frame and I would expect that is consuming all the DSLR engineering resources.

I expect that this statement will be proven wrong
