From what I read on dpreview, the main factor holding down Pentax sales is the perception that the selection, quality and performance of their lenses is subpar, not the lack of a FF body.  A lot of possible Canikon converts like the K-3 body, but not what they hear about Pentax zoom lenses.  When the consensus here with brand loyalists is that many Pentax zooms are inferior to Sigmas, that's not a selling point.

Personally, I'm fine using Sigmas on my K-5, but if I wanted to upgrade my gear, I'd probably consider Canikon for the lens offerings.  If I wanted to go FF, I'd have already switched systems, since the Pentax lens deficiencies are even more of an issue for FF.
