Seriously I want to understand this. If anybody wants a FF camera why not just buy another system available right now? I went to B&H site and selected

SLR lenses, USA, Full Frame

Overall there are 54 Canons, 57 Nikons and only 7 Pentax full frame lenses available today. There are also several full frame bodies from other brands and 0 from Pentax. Personally, I am not a fan of legacy second hand manual lenses with unknown pricing and quality.

So, if I want a full frame system, I will buy another known and proven brand with few known and proven lenses and will be done tomorrow. It will be more practical and actually cheaper (compare Pentax lens prices with others) to wait few years for Pentax to produce a body and few lenses when you can buy them right now from other manufacturers.

My thoughts exactly.  I left Canon 5D mkii for Pentax, I don't miss full frame that badly.
