Poll: Full Frame / Pentax Population Migration Census

Another FF post, again?

Well yes... I adore Pentax but on the way to pro, I needed a full frame. I waited and waited and tried to predict the future, as many amongst us.
The recent interview of Pentax by PentaxForums unveiled a tiny piece of the veil.
Result? Well, don't count on a 'near future' release. Seems Pentax strategy is to hit as many people as possible.
In other words: delivering possibly innovative, different-from-the-others top quality products to normal people with low to mid-ranged budgets.

Of course there are some nice jewels among the lenses but high quality lenses are expensive in general and not having such lenses would describe
Pentax as an amateur player in the photographic market, which it is not, despite being far behind sales of Nickel and Calcium.

What about the poll?

I would like this post to be a sticky as reference and keep statistics so this can be used to show it to Pentax.
Statistics about how many people would buy a FF and more important, how many changed ship already ( how many buyers did Pentax lose).
Even if you still own a Pentax but bought a non Pentax FF, please participate also.

I would definitely buy a Pentax FF DSLR. I'm an enthusiast, not a pro, so I WANT but don't NEED one. I have invested (spent) too much on K-mount lenses to jump ship.
