Why I won't buy into another camera brand - I'm keeping my Pentax gear.

used to think selling my pentax K70+18-135 just to get A6300 with just ....the crappy 16-50 kit len XD (my caculation of my limited budget)
A6300 really has quite attractive price now, after the introduction of A6400

i love crop APS-C, but what really let me down is how overpriced Sony crop lens, but average on optical and build quality if compare to Pentax (less prices but great values offering - the cheap, compact WR zoom, the cute solid metal limited lens and how special color, contrast rendition)

the video mode 4K is pretty cool, but what the point when my laptop is not enough specs and storage to hold the video files, and mostly my purpose is uploading for showcase on social media

Autofocus speed isn't really matter much for me, pentax is fine

okay, pentax, you really win my heart, once again!

i didn't like how smartphone evolution nowadays, many manufacturers thinking smartphone should be repurpose as mini PC powerhouse, photography tool wannabe
and look, smartphone is getting bigger and thicker!! oh dear
for me, smartphone should be small and and compact as possible to fit nicely on any pocket, thats why i remember old era smartphone
effectively fast phone calling, messaging, decent features entertainment, decent camera...

in the crazed world with alots of smartphone crowds around, now just think how to make yourself a little bit special that stand out and get more loves on social media everyday :D

i have K70 so i would go all the way to 18-135, versatility and practical, it's not about superior image quality, but get most of works done to make not only yourself, but your friends, family happy enough to make up a good, full of smiling day

for self pleasure, i would go for 20-40, and 55-300 PLM, for rogue, creative shooting

i'm planning to buy 20-40
i really not expect prime limited quality, and even luxury high end DA*

but at least if the len is better than 18-55, 18-135 and maybe on par (or even slightly better?!) to 16-85 (of course, at range 20-40 for comparison)

i would happy to embrace it, my most shooting purpose is landscape and people (event, wedding, familiy)

Fuji have less WR consumer lens than Pentax, but what catch my attention the most is Fuji 18-135 WR, that quite similar level to our beloved Pentax 18-135 WR

seem like Fuji one is better at sharpness (the corner edge?)
but when come into size, Pentax is lighter and smaller

I may feel over-confident, or maybe i think i'm idiot myself, yeah, i tried to impress some hot chicks in the beach, so i paid a price.....
but i guess my case could be "18-135 can't do"

K70+18-135 against beach water on sand ground, a small tide suddenly slapped both 2!

so how the result after?

+ The K70 body survive wonderfully, but some sands made shutter button stucks, i have fixed that by pouring water to make sand out, the shutter button live again!
+ The 18-135 survive, seem like there is no dust, water come inside, wow really? but what are the bad things?

* AF stopped working, only MF
* Aperture jumping around 3.5-4 at 18mm, confuse exposure metering, smaller F cause overexposure
* Can't switch live view, if i do so, the camera automatically switch for to VF mode, but movie mode is fine, but unable to enter menu settings, oop!

i tried attach other len, everything worked normal, so i knew 18-135 really broken now!

please guy, don't ever try that!
