Nothing official yet, so not much to go on. But I don't think it is too late at all. If they get it right, and have a swathe of fine D-FA lenses to combine with it, there will be interest. Image quality is getting so good in sub-APS-C format, that the FF DOF effect would be the chief driver behind pros and enthusiasts to get themselves into a Pentax FF. I think for that reason alone, it will be worth looking into.
Exactly right ! I mean personally I think that a K3 for somebody who primarily shoots telephoto or macro - is probably a better choice - especially if in the field - weather sealed, rugged, lightweight - with superb resolution and IQ . However the FF has some other qualities - which I was missing from the very begging of picking my first DSLR - a K10D. The moment when I looked through the viewfinder with my 58mm Helios that I carried over from my film days was just amazing - I couldn't believe my own eyes ( I was a rookie about digital photography back then ) - only after a year or two I understood fairly well what a 'crop factor'' is :P

For me personally the 2015 for a FF camera from Pentax sounds absolutely fine - I got more than enough good glass and both K10D and K-01 AND various film cameras will keep me busy

How did you know? "Norman Head, if you have won our draw among an unusually high number of contestants and many fake tickets that were never assigned to anybody,then we might say to you "Norman Head You've Won 1 million dollars. Of course we wouldn't mean it if we said it but wouldn't that be a thrill?

Haven't you guys ever considered a Pentax full frame that uses disposable sensors? They are readily available and can be had for cheap! Then you could just stop waiting for a new full frame to hit the market. I usually buy the Ilford Delta sensors that read black and white and only have the option of iso 100, but they come in a 24 pack at a reasonable cost. Fuji also produces some nice disposable color sensors that are compatible too. The only thing I don't like is that they didn't put a rear screen on the back of these full frames so you don't know what you capture until you scan the negatives to your computer later. Must have been a cost saving measure to keep the price down.

Is the depth-of-pan bigger? I really like me some shallow-depth-pan (makes for crispy pasta).

I don't allow those things in my house. I eat 1.5x more lasagna than the average person.

The problem is my Aperture is always wide open and that leads to issues with Depth of Stomach control.

I'd offer a few guesses, but I'm being polite.
