Pentax K-1ii VS Sony A7iii (Am I switching to the dark side?)

I dont consider myself as a Pro-Guy but first of all, in order to edit large amounts of 4k video I need a computer that can handle 4k video editing haha
My main computer struggles with 1080 videos, you have to imagine the pain when in school, they ask us for a 10minute video in 1080p with subtitles included, it can take over 2 hours to render it correctly. And, many of my favorite documentaries have been recorded even on 720p, so I dont think that 4k is that big of a deal, thats why I said that.

And no, Im not a gear head at all, I have had interest in photography since I was 9, and i bought the K-50 in 2014, it has been my only camera since then. I have had the same camera with me for four years and it has accompanied me in 30+ trips. Believe me, I know how to take pictures, Im not the best. But I think that its time for a well deserved upgrade.

Pentax K-1ii VS Sony A7iii (Am I switching to the dark side?)

Right now I have the K-50, the 100mm macro F2.8, the 18-55 kit lens, and the little 50mm 1.8. Pretty standard if you ask me, I definitely will be selling the k-50, the 18-55 and the 50mm lenses.

If I get to buy the k-1ii, i will buy it with the 24-70mm f2.8 because I already have a Macro that can be used as a small tele lens, (Plus, Its a Macro lol)
If I get to buy the Sony, I will choose the 24-70mm f4 as well, mainly because they are extremely versatile.

From the comments that I read on this thread, Im thinking that, I consider myself as a portrait, street and landscape photographer, and i always have struggled to take photos with the k-50 in Low Light. The superb ISO on the K-1 and the increased pixels plus the new 50mm lens is making me buy the camera right away.
Im also thinking, do I really need 4k video? Do I really want to spend 2k on each Sony Lens? I definitely would would love to have Eye AF on my main shooter, but, is it worth it?
Sony is the king of the camera companies right now, everybody is loving what Sony is doing, and when somebody hears the word "Pentax", they almost laugh. I know this is dumb, but we have to admit that nobody cares about us. Is this the deal breaker for us? Maybe not.

Maybe I will stick with Pentax, after all, the one that makes the photos is you, not the camera!

Lol, Im still here. Havent had the time to make a decision, dont worry, I will let you guys know what was my final decision. As a 17 year old that makes less than 100$ a week its kinda difficult to buy a K-1ii or a A7iii, BUT I will definitely buy one in a short term. Im the kind of person that analyzes every single aspect of a product in order to buy the best one for me and for the price, because once I spend $2k on a camera, there is no way back! :P Thats why Im still deciding, meanwhile Im improving my skills in editing software!
Thanks yll for your comments and time.

So, Im thinking very seriously to switch to the dark side (Sony :p)

Why should I stay with Pentax? I know that a new 50mm is coming but it doesnt seem to have improvements in sharpness overall. And brands like Tamron and Sigma are making everything to win Sonys market.
I like that the Sony A7iii is as versatile as it can get, nice photos, lenses, video, AF, fps and much more. The only downside that Im concerned about is the the lenses are very pricey
The K-1ii is a beast when it comes to Pixel shift and weather sealed bodies, but the lack of new lenses and poor feedback is making me question everything.

Pentax is really slowing down in their AF and video aspects, Eye AF is a must for me plus those extra FPS. Plus, the body of the Pentax is heavy.

Pleaseee, somebody give me reasons to not switch to Sony and stay with Pentax

I introduce you to the beautiful state of California, I was on holidays when I went there and managed to capture this moment, to guys chilling in a boat talking about life, what a great way to spend your time!
That was the smallest boat that I have seen, it wasnt a canoe because it had a motor so I guess that it counts as a boat :lol:

Enjoy!

Hey guys, I was just searching on Amazon some products and I wanted to see the price of some Pentax Cameras and Lenses, to my surprise the K-1, the 20-70mm and many other products didnt showed up and many more products that are "Available" only come used "from this sellers"
Whats up with that?
