Unless a mountain of old K-mount FF lenses comes out of the closets, driving the prices of them down.

I maintain if there had been a good business case to release a Pentax FF camera we would have had one long ago, ergo there hasn't been a good business case to release a Pentax FF camera. They simply haven't had the modern lenses and infrastructure to support that platform profitably. It might be a very long time before they do have.
You seem to have gone all negative on us Monochrome!!! Although, your tag still says "this place is gonna be jumpin' in September"...

I really liked and strongly agree with your logic, posted elsewhere, about the current capability gap in the Pentax range (reportage etc etc), so the functional requirement exists for a good FF.

I think we've all heard the horror stories of Hoya's reign, and I believe the lack of a FF body is more attributable to their lack of interest, than a 'business case'.
