Hi to all you Pentax owners I have joined this forum because I am seriously considering buying a pentax camera.I presently shoot with Sony and to be honest Quite like the results but I would like to upgrade from my alpha 580 that I presently use.I am not to sure about the Sony A 77 and the transulent mirror technoligy but don't want to jump ship to the big two if you know what I mean.Image quality is most important to me and I have read some good reviews on the Penrtax K 5lls I mostly shoot landscapes and would like to try some portrait work as well.Could you be able to advise me on what lenses I would need if I decide to go with Pentax .I am also thinking about the Nikon D7100 as an option as well but I have read so many good reports on the Pentax that I would like to go with it if it could offer the same image quality and its a little bit different.
