Phasing out future so-coled PRO-APS-C-DSLR ???

....In the light of the expected Nikon D600, future new FF Canon body, and also in the light of the much improved eos 5D MK III ?

Yep, something to think about, Pentax boys and girls...

Thought about it and rejected it when I switched to Pentax.

Any cheap full frame system won't cost a lot of money but must and will impose the weight and size penalty that is inherent with full frame. The whole point to the Pentax system is a pro build weather sealed aps-c sized body and lenses... Nikon and Canon still have NOTHING to compete with that.

APS-C is not a temporary thing while I'm waiting for full frame. I have owned and shot D700's and 5DII's and rejected them as the wrong tools for me. I suspect a lot of people pining for full frame will spend a lot of money only to be very disappointed in what they "gained" vs. what they lost.

Now if Pentax comes out with a small solid full frame, all bets are off...
