Was teetering on the brink

I was teetering back and forth between the FA 31 and a K5. My reasoning was exactly as the OP, and I just couldn't make up my mind.

Until this past week.

I have to tell you, the amount of bile and anger I was reading in the K5 section made me decide to sit out buying a K5 until June or July. People ranting on stains, flashes, back focus, mystery firmware .... bah! I decided to put my money in a proven, 10 year old optical design for now, and maybe piece together enough dollars to pick up a K5 body once things have gotten ironed out.

And maybe the K5 selling price will have corrected to a more affordable number by then as well.

I think I'll spend the time between now and the summer with my K7 and my FA31.
