Pentax Full Frame

A 35mm DSLR format from Pentax may still be a few years off but some of the current lenses could "support" the FF format, at least was tried w/ film like the Pentax DA 35mm f2.4 and Pentax DA 50mm f1.8, yeah FF glass for less than US$200 (I don't know how much is the 35mm FF from Canikon) and not counting the Pentax DA 40 f2.8 Limited and the DA 70 f2.4 Limited.

3rd party support is already there like Sigma's new line of lenses does support the K mount especially that lovely 35mm f1.4 Art, Samyang lenses except their tilt-shift ones, Tamron has the highly regarded 17-50 f2.8 and also has a 70-200 f2.8 in K mount. Almost all of these lenses supports the 35mm DSLR format except the 17-50. So all in all, Pentax has a lot of lenses to choose from.

Yep, the K30 + DA 50mm f1.8 is an excellent setup, get a cheap Nikon SB24 and set it to A mode and happily shoot away.

There is no such thing a "Pro" level gear, just Pro level work.
