I am fully aware. But there may be readers who want full frame and are not (yet?) Pentaxians and who are lured by the D5 siren song calling for the $$$ in their wallets.

I almost said "645Z body" but the prices I saw for those were so variable as to make the comparison worthless.

Actually he didn't come up with this name. The term "trinity" or even "holy trinity" is commonly used to describe the three zoom lenses (wide, standard and tele) with constant f2.8 that most manufacturers offer for their fullframe cameras. Those three zooms are considered the standard for pro photographers to cover the most commonly used focal lengths. That's why Pentax offers those three zooms as the first new lenses to accompany the new K-1.
I bought the D FA 150-450mm lens as my first lens to accompany the K-1. (I've had it since early May last year, and I've made good use of it on the K-3II).

I've since added the 24-70mm and the 70-200mm. So I am two-thirds of the way to the Trinity! Waiting ... waiting ...!

Two-thirds? Be careful... once you reach four-thirds you'd start talking about how smaller sensors are the better choice, and mirrors being obsolete
