If Pentax wants to remain competitive it needs a big next step. Not the same K5 with little improvements. With the excellent quality already in the K5 we shouldn't settle for less than a FF in the upcoming models. People who loves the k5 so much and want to keep the APS-C sensor can buy a k-30.

yea this puts me in a bit of a pickle. i currently shoot sony, my first dslr'ish camera. cant stand what they are about, and will upgrade before holloween is here. my issue is i know that i will eventually go FF, simply bc low noise is so important to me. i dont want to go from sony, to pentax, then to canikon to get my FF. i love how pentax has so many weather sealed options, and is now putting focus peeking in as well. the k30 is exactly what i want right now, a huge upgrade over my a33 but kinda a halfway stop until im ready to spend more on a FF. darn pentax for not having a FF.

so i either buy pentax, hoping they will drop a FF in the next couple years, and if they dont then jump ship again...or skip a great system for now in order to plan ahead for FF. just seems like canokon dont offer anything near the k30 for the price...
