Yes a full featured FF dslr should priced around $1500-$1800 but if pentax can make something like Leica m9 which doesn't have autofocus system thus lowering the cost of production, $1000 is pretty much possible, depending on how much the sensor will cost.

Wait a minute... something like Leica M9? Leica M9 cost about $7000!

Getting rid of the AF will actually increase the cost, as they would sell very few such cameras. It's a recipe for disaster, IMO.
