Some say, Pentax DX bodies are SO capable, they blow Nikon FX away...

A reasonable rule of thumb

When someone says that one model "blows away" the other, I just file it under "childish".

Good rule of thumb

The truth is that there isn't a contemporary DX body that gives better image quality than a contemporary FX body. Some may come close, but that's as far as it goes.

As things are today the technology in aps-c and FF sensors tend to be fairly similar. Meaning it is very difficult for a smaller sensor to compensate for their smaller area. On the other hand, sensor technology also has evolved in a way which mean the differences in practice might be less and less significant for most of our photography.
