I'll keep my K-1 to exploit the FA Limiteds, DA* primes and legacy glass to their fullest potential.

But for day to day shooting, and definitely for travel, a crop camera with 10-17, 11-18, 16-50, and 55-300 (or 70-210 and 150-450 if wildlife is the main goal) makes a pretty compelling kit.

What I've been finding is that my PHONE camera makes pretty good shots. I've reviewed them and more than one seem to be worthy of printing and displaying at my home. Maybe not at full 13x19, but at least 8x11.5 or event 11x17....
So for "causal" shooting, I just use the phone, but if I'm serious about shooting, I bring the K-1ii with my 12mm, 20-30mm, 28-105mm, 100-300m, and maybe my 400-600mm, but that last one only comes out if I have a tripod. Even with the shake reduction, I can't get good shots hand-held with the mirror lens.

the adaptability of almost any mirrorless system is pretty cool - and the biggest reason I have a couple of Fuji APS-C bodies...

as far as format - APS-C sensors are perfect for me; I don't need anything bigger for any reason....
Agreed, the Fuji APS-C mirrorless system appears to be very nice. An XT-4 would be high on my list if I were starting from scratch. I like the old-school metal dials for specific functions and the retro styling. However, their image stabilization approach appears to be different than Pentax, as it's on some bodies and some lenses, much like the micro-4/3 bodies.

I have one Fuji with and one without SR; I'm just more careful with the X-T2 about the length of lens I mount to it....
