As I already have a K-5IIs and a 21 ltd it would be that. If I didn't have a 1 camera/lens combo that would suit me, I would get a Fujifilm X100T. The GR would be a candidate, but 18mm is, for me, a bit wide for a fixed focal length.

Given that there will be a Pentax FF, if I'd want to keep one camera and one lens, and sell all the rest, I'd keep the lenses that are not supposed to lose much of their value (FA 85 1.4, FA 31 1.8) and the camera that will have a smaller size/weight (K-01) compared to FF. However, regarding the FA85 1.4, I'd also keep it for a while and sell it when the Pentax FF will be released. The FA 31 can still be a great normal prime on the K-01, while the FA85 1.4 will be on FF like the 55 on APSc. So, I'd keep the K-01 and the FA 31 limited.
I think you are on the same track as I am.

I'm overthinking my photography and thus also thinking over the gear I have and what I would want in the future.

So what if you are only (allowed) have the option to own and use one lens and camera body?

Would you'r choice be aps-c or maybe smaller like m4/3 or bigger as full frame or 645Z? What lens would you like to have? A prime a zoom? Or would you go with a Point and Shoot like the Sony ff or the Panasonic zoom FZ1000?


(I'm going to think That over todays while I think about what to put up for sale.)
I'd keep my red K-30 and the 18-135 WR definitely. It's got the most useful range for me, that lens, and I love my red K-30 and would never part with it. I feel that way about my black SPII too, but if I had to pick one, I'd pick the K-30. I totally lusted after that camera from first sight. Now that I finally have one it's just MINE forever. :P

Considering my phone is the Samsung S4 zoom and covers 24-240.The camera I'd opt for is the Q7 with the BIGMA Sigma which would cover 225 to 2250.....I can live with small sensor images!

My one camera and lens

Until K-3II and/or Pentax full-frame arrive, my choice will have to be my K-3 with 31mm ltd.
