Re: Where will this FF market share come from?

I think it very unlikely that Pentax can steal FF users from the big two or even from Sony. That leaves existing Pentax users which doesn't grow overall market share at all or new users from other minor brands/formats. Given the strength of existing players Pentax would need to have a spectacular FF offering to tempt new users in. That offer would need updates of the FA* zooms at the very least and there is no sign of that happening.

I agree.  FF is not a way to create a growth spurt, it's a way to prepare for a future where crop DSLRs may fall out of favor.
