Jokes aside, I shoot birds with my K10D which as you'll know has an inferior AF, poor low light capabilities, and also only has 3FPS.... Ok granted lenses on the very long end are also going to be an issues, as will weight but it could be amusing to try it....
Actually it works well, although I must admit a K-3 with an AF lens would be much easier . 645D, 600mm +1.4x:

Thanks. Here's another, handheld using Pentax's notoriously poor AF 645D, 400mm FA.

Wow. First time seeing birds from medium format I think. How much is this cropped? Would be nice to see the full frame

Most are heavy crops. This one is nearly full frame and shows it is possible to shoot birds in flight with a manual focus lens (although the miss rate is pretty high). 645D, 600mm.

If this 645z is really going to be 8500, it will be a game changer.

maybe pentax really makes MF the new FF.
slightly bigger price (now) and if a mirrorless would ever happen and might even be the size of a 1Dx or things like that.

a little bit more power to the CPUs etc and we are at 6FPS in MF.... ok just let me check where i can find a nice 1exabyte HDD.

There are 2 old lenses. Not produced for a long time and it could be used with 645D with some limitations.

Actually, the FF will be of the sort that will make users exclaim "WTH ...." But in a positive way.
Remember from the interviews, how Pentax expressed a care that the FF does not spoil the APS-C K-mount offerings, and yet that is does not start a whole new mount and lenses, complicate matters and enrage current customers?
Well, they have a brilliant solution, and many will wonder why on Earth everyone else didn't think of it before?

I'd rather have the FF body and lenses over MF if only for size/heft/bulkiness of the MF... not to mention cost of the system The IQ, however, is phenomenal. I'd love to try Brenizer style Panoramas with one and a fast lens (and a rack of hard drives haha).

I was suggesting this a year or more ago and was decried by many due to the quality of EVF and after trying a few I can understand why. But a MILMFC would probably be the same size as a D800 and if it had a FF crop mode that would pretty my allow people to transition to both formats who have a few FF lenses and encourage buyers to enter the MF lens market.
