Why not a Pentax FullFrame - that's simple, small and less expensive?

(A) I want a cheap-but-competent Pentax FullFrame camera.

(B) My loyalty to Pentax started with an cheap-but-competent film K1000.

(C) I, as finances improved, later owned a ME, Super ME, and a MX (but never the elusive LX).

(D) I bought lots of Pentax K and M lenses over the years. Lots.

Question: Why can't Pentax recreate this super sales strategy with a cheap-but-competent FullFrame digital DSLR?

It all would make great sense to me.

Note: I've become impatient with Pentax lately. I recently purchased a Nikon P7700 point and shoot because it blows away - with price and features - its Pentax competitor (the MX-1).

C'mon Pentax! Show us a smallish, cheap-but-competent, great in low-light FullFrame camera!

Find a great sensor - and work your Pentax magic with it!

It'd be a winning strategy!
