I was happy to read this hint because I do like using the arrow keys in full-screen quick look. But, I thought that there had to be a better solution... so I started trying various other keys when in quick look full-screen, and I found a much better solution:

1) Get into quick look full-screen using command+option+y

2) Hold command and tap "`" -- the button next to 1 (this is the command to 'cycle through open windows')

3) If you only have the one Finder window open, just keep command down and tap "`" again to return to the original window

4) If you have multiple Finder windows open, either keep tapping "`" until you return to the original window, or just add "option" when clicking "`" to 'cycle through open windows in reverse' (command+option+`)

5) You can now use the arrow keys

* "esc" to quit still doesn't work, but you can use command+option+y again to close quick look.

opps - use "shift" not "option" for reverse window cycling
