Well D500 have better AF system of course, better flash system while pentax's suck, lenses... but pentax have more lenses for crop camera, better iso, pro ui, and more.

I'm really worry about these things for Pentax FF

1. Auto focus
2. Flash system
3. joystick

I used K-3ii before but it still lagging compare to canon and nikon. Flash system is quite suck too especially sync speed.

Well you don't mention the ISO of the Nikon D5 which has an extended ISO range of 3.2 million, and a native ISO of to 102,400. I have been using
Pentax equipment for nearly 50 years and have no plans to change, but I stand by my comments that Pentax needs to keep up with the mob on the morph to night vision photography.
We will finally have a use for the screen on the back of the camera---because the camera will work when it's so dark that the standard optical viewfinder is blacked out.

I have no doubt that pentax can get there but my point is that they need to.

If the future is bright, we'll never need high ISO again. Nikon dropped the ball on this one

I suggest you go to an aboslute beginner photography training before you start writing this nonsense.

To make us all laugh even more, feel free to explain one specific every-day scenario, where the difference between 1/200 (Nikon D750) and 1/180 (Pentax K-30) makes a difference. For a pro with pro level equipment available.

I have one of these. Works good for old glass. It's kind a like a 1,25x converter since there is glass in this device. My old Nikkor 300mm/f4.5 became a 375mm/f5.6 on my K-5.

I would prefer 1/1000s synch speed and I have an application for it. Focal plane shutter will not manage even 1/500s. 1/200 vs 1/180s is marginal difference.

The most interesting part about the D500 is in body shake reduction. Nikon never showed this feature before to protect their in lens shale reduction lenses. In the D500 it is only available in video mode, but this is the first step and will compete directly against one of Pentax' key USPs. D750s will have in body shake redcution and after a firmware update the D500(s) will be able to do the same. Speed, AF, construction ... of D500/D750 is impressive and they offer a bunch more lenses than Pentax. I assue that Canon will also present in body shake reduction soon OR add even more lenses with in lens stabilzation. The idea to combine lens stabilization with sensor stabilization is great - available from Olympus, Panasonic and Nikon now. Try handholding a really long lens on a K3 - you focus points will jump up and down. Really long lenses need lens stabilisation for better viewfonder image and AF/metering performance, plus you can make the sytem even more stable as Olympus suggests.
Pentax FF will probably be the smallest SLR FF, but this should not become the only unique feature/USP. Something really interesting is missing. Don't expect a wonder AF performing better than Nikon D5 or so.

I don't think so. Optical stabilisation via in-body SR isn't what Nikon are offering, or planning to offer.

Nikon's “Electronic Vibration Reduction” in the D500 stabilizes video shooting via software. It is a poor substitute for in-body or in-lens optical stabilization.

And you can't turn on sensor stabilization in a camera just through firmware. You need hardware (ie magnets, usually) in the camera to move the sensor around, and there is no sign of that hardware in the D500 or D5.
