I don't want a 645 because it won't accept my K mount lenses , most of which are Pentax , but I have a few Sigma lenses as well .

I don't mind paying a fair price for the Pentax FF if and when it comes out ( I think it inevitably will ) and by that I mean double the price of a K5 , or even a bit more .

$1500 for a decent FF isn't going to happen anytime soon

Re-factor your expectation

Fair price =$3000 at launch falling to $2000 at eol

Obviously you have different price structures wherever you are !

Here in the UK , the (old) K5 still sells for around £750 ( body only ) , with the K5II being just under £800 and the K5IIS just under a grand ; for comparison the D800 sells for just over two grand .

I have no idea what the Pounds/Dollars exchange rate is these days .

I don't think it is at all unrealistic to expect a Pentax FF DSLR to cost a little less than a D800 , although I will still buy one even if it costs more than the Nikon .
