But, if Pentax does not follow the trend to use The FF sensors that are becoming available, and capitalize on its older experience, I am very pessimistic as to the future of the company to keep a good place in the current market.

Even with the relatively low cost D600 and 6D options from Nikon and Canon, the FF segment of the market is tiny. Net effect, Pentax isn't going to live or die on this.

I am fulframe whiner.

Stop doing that. I did, I switched. I simply recognized that it wasn't coming, but Pentax still makes great gear.

Because people are looking what camera brand made those excellent pictures! Canon... And they want to buy Canon!

No... Some of us bought Nikon. In fact, most of the switches I can think of in this forum went Nikon. I have to say, it's not all that big a switch, but I find Canon alien.

Pentax NEED to make Fuflrame and give it for free, even paying some money for transport to take it from them.

??? What?!?

And Nikon is doing this already. And have some success, actually!

No they aren't.
