FF != "pro"

Not even close. There are no enough 'pros' in the US to account for D4 sales here alone, much less all FF cameras.

The FF market is an enthusiast/hobbiest market, largely. Pentax (or Fuji, or whoever) doesn't even need to worry about the 'pro' market if they move into FF, just like Nike doesn't depend on the sales from the NBA for their shoes - the NBA (etc) serves as an extremely visible and effective marketing tool, not as an important sales channel volume.
