The only problem is, because of the corrected distortion, if your wife gets in the frame it will make her look shorter than she is a and thicker than she is, and if you should not get a picture of her deleted before she sees it because you were laughing too hard, you're going to suffer. Trust me, I know of what I speak.
That's only a problem if you're married

The pixel density is similar between the D800 and the K5 (a K5 would have 37.8M pixels at FF). The D3200 is light but a low spec camera compared to the D800. The D7000 has the same sensor as the K5. The new D7100 may be worth checking out. The main thing to consider is whether you need full frame or not. If you really love the Pentax then the K5II or K5IIs are a slight improvement on the K5.
