However, I think near price parity between FF and APS-C knocks out a lot of the reasons for sticking with a smaller format, except for the extra reach for sports and wildlife.

Right. Particularly with a DSLR, there's such a difference - unless you go much pricier with the larger format.

From the other (APS-C) side of the aisle---

I never saw the K-1 as too expensive, I simply thought it too large/heavy to want to carry it for 12 hours while traveling, for an extra level of resolution I don't really need. And of course I do see the extra reach of APS-C for the same lens as an advantage.

So "price parity" doesn't really tend to bother me at all--for me it's a question of K-1 shooters and K-3 shooters wanting a slightly different optimization, and Pentax supporting both with the best they can do.
