Remind me why I should stay with Pentax

As someone who DID make the switch to a Nikon system ( I still shoot film with pentax) each has its good points and bad. I went from a k10d ( which I loved, but had horrible low light performance) to a D700. I love my new camera. I love the AF and low light performance, which is exactly why I bought it in the first place.

Here's what I I found:
Lenses are retardedly expensive.
They really are no better, optical quality wise, than Pentax. Period.
Pentax has the sweeter menu set up. The Nikon you have to go digging for stuff and its a pain.
I never had an sdm issue with pentax, I was using the 60-250, and loved that lens.
I have 2 nikon lenses so far, the 24-70 ( I like it, it made a good first lens) and the 50mm1.4 g. Pentax's 50mm Crushes the nikon, hands down, for half the price.

There will be things you like better with a new system, there will also be new problems. The question is, will the problems the new system fixes override the problems you may find on the new system. For me the answer was yes.

Pentax at Jan 7th 2010 CES ?

I walked into my local camera shop two days ago with every intension of dumping my pentax system, and buying a d700. The guy behing the counter actually talked me out of it. He said " hey, atleast wait a week", " see what they put out at CES , and if you can, wait until march to see what comes out then. They ( meaning Pentax) has to do something, or the're going to get knocked out of the market. If they don't do anything by then, then make the switch." So here I am waiting, again.

...If I was to sell my K10d, 60-250, 12-24 and 10-17FE do you think I could get for them? All were purchased brand new, and are in excellent condition. Oh, add the 540 flash to that as well. Just curious at this point, i don't really want to sell it, but i don't know how much longer I am willing to hold out for pentaxs next camera to come out, so, i'm considering options here is all. Any serious help would be greatly appreciated. i can hear the jokes coming already:D

To me, If you look in the center, it looks a little like a dragon, but if you look above the center, it looks like two big black eyes and a nose...I don't know, i showed it to my friends, they all saw the same thing, you kind of have to look close and use your imagination..it was a training fire at my local FD. The picture was bigger, i cropped it.

When i'm shooting street, I don't look at stealth as a way of getting around someones permission or consent, I look at it as a way not to spoil a moment. If i see two people kissing under a lamp light for example, i'm not gonna run up in thier face and take a picture, that to me is invading their privacy. Yes its on a public street, but have a little decency about it. so.............

I take 2 lenses with me when ever I go to NYC. My 50 mm and my 60-250. If people are cool with me taking their photo, I use the 50 (prefer to anyways) but sometimes I sit across the street from someplace public, the stairs of the library, times square, etc, and shoot things I see that I think are cool. I try not to shoot people in outside resturants. I'll find a nice setting with a cool store front, set up out of the way, then just hang out for a while and see what happens.....
