4th Pentax (K-70)

Hi, today I visited a BIG store in Manhattan where I purchased my 4th Pentax. This time - the K-70! So far - I have been happy with the photos, not so much with the video, but for that I have my GoPro.

My 1st Pentax was back in 1990's - the ZX-50. I got a Battery grip for it and a flash (AF-330FTZ).
My 2nd Pentax I got in 2005 - the ist*DS. Then in 2008 I purchased an AF-540FGZ for the camera. The camera was with me all over the place - Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Africa and Central America. Thousands of pictures!
My 3rd Pentax I purchased in 2011. It was the K-r. Never worked well... That infamous AF + the pictures were always faded/flat no matter what I did as far as settings. At the same time I purchased the Tamron 10-24. Then, like in 2013 I bout the Sigma 18-250.
Finally - today - I traded in my ist*DS, K-r and an AF-330FTZ for an "open-box" K-70.
I have been thinking about switching over to Canon 77D or maybe t7i, but when I thought about many things I'd had to purchase - I relaxed a bit and went for the K-70.
