Ok, no FF for 2012, but it might come for 2013:

Even if this FF rumor is true, that camera will struggle for three crucial reasons

(1) Competition: D800, 5D MarkIII, D600, and not to forget A99 which will be at least very different than Canon and Nikon (EVF, high frame rate, video)

(2) Lenses -- Pentax FF lens line-up is very weak to nonexistent

(3) Brand name and user base: Nikon and Canon dominate the field just by brand name and huge user base who upgrade from older models that they already own
