Thanks for all the replies...staying with Pentax

Thanks for all of your helpful replies. I ended up keeping the K-5.

I just started thinking that I might end up saving money in the long run if I switched to a Canon FF, even though it would be a larger up-front investment.

In the end, the portability of the Pentax system was the deciding factor. Plus, I have always been satisfied with my camera (K10D) and lenses.

I am a climber/adventure traveler so Pentax really is the best system for me. I just think I overanalyze everything.

If you can stand the size and weight then go for the 5D2. Size/weight vs IQ, simple as that.
Indeed.

the price of these lens you decide for Pentax seems not influenced much by the recent price rasie.
