Hold a K-7 or K-5 in your hands and you'll know what to do.

If you need a camera of the same or better quality, buy a Nikon D7000. If you want lenses of better quality, buy a Pentax.

well, if you're on a limited budget you can buy a d7000 and borrow your daddy's lenses.

but if you want the best aps-c, with the best autofocus prime lenses, you already know what to do.
