I care as much about dynamic range as about megapixels.

Hehe Nothing to worry about. The FF is coming..THIS year shouldn't be long until more news/specs will get out! Same with some 2.8 zooms.

And, yes, it will kick ass!

Absolutely true..........But Pentaxians are a bit cheap and bought some old lenses for 10 dollars each

If native English speakers are saying it... my apologies to D1N0, then. The memory of people attacking Kenspo (to which D1N0 never participated IIRC) are probably too fresh in my mind.
I never thought the word could be used without any negative connotation. Slang or not, I still cannot see how it could possibly not have any negative connotation. Yet it is. Amazing.
It can also have a positive connotation. I might say, about my favorite camera, "that is my shit! "

Hardware should be mostly done quite a time ago. Software though is open till final release.

They definitely aren't going to use the 20Mp sensor unless the FF is designed to be a flagship for sports photographers, which is highly unlikely. My guess remains the 36Mp sensor from last year.
I agree, the 36mp makes sense. It will be cheaper and Pentax are good at squeezing older sensors to the limit. This will help keep their first FF price down to compete with D610 ect.

I thought - and hoped - this debate was closed for good....

That's another industrial option, an other business model, a potential killer for the existing catalog, an enormous R&D effort with incredible risks to disperse the existing pentaxian community, with not more revenue in the short term.
Sony would be happier for sure, they would "win" with short notice in that case. But probably sell less sensors overall.
Once again, we need a sarcasm tag.
