Personally, my best guess is that FF for Pentax will not work out as well as the enthusiasm you see among those who are active on a few forums, including this one. If that is the case, we are likely to see Pentax returning quickly to a strong presence in the APSc category where the recent offerings across major brands have been somewhat less competitive than in the past - especially when it comes to the higher end segment.

Of course, this is pure speculation. If FF takes off for Pentax, you are quite likely to see a return to healthy third-party support. Either way (continued strong Pentax support or greater third-party activity) it seems that the threat to APSc is not a significant concern. And I'm not known as optimist...
