Hello from CYPRUS

Hello people,
My name is Kleo and I am from Cyprus. A small (the biggest) island in the Mediterranean sea. I am new in photography, actively shooting for around 18 months. I love to shoot street and landscapes.
Having said that I am not a pentaxian yet however I feel Pentax has the best value in the business for the new photographer. that K1 is oh so sweet, but owning a Nikon D5000 and a few lenses and inherited a Nikon D800 i felt investing in the tamron 2.8 G VC line was a good call.
But I see the 645Z and i just cant get that chubby lady off my mind.
Yes, its big,
Yes it's chunky,
Yes is expensive,
But comparing a new FF setup to a used 645z setup it's no brainier.
I don't know if i can handle her but just like in motorbikes when i got my first one, i wend with a KTM SuperDuke 990, and 5 years later i still cant handle even 80 percent of the performance, much less 100%.
My motorcycle is "Smiles per liter" opposed to miles per liter, and i had and have so much fun on that bike that i catch my self smiling even after the ride all through the day.
