Been to Nikon Canon Sony and Back in the Last eighteen Months!
FF (Hate the Term) and APSC but I have not been happy with any of it, a Sony A77 and A850 were the last straw! I'm ordering a K5 off SRS tonight and my Gear is currently selling on the big Auction site.
My Partner Actually Said to me the other night when I was whinging about Gear and Money "Why don't you go back to a Pentax? You never did anything but shoot with that one!"
I took a look back at my Pics on the Hard Drive and sure enough there are three times as many taken in any given period with the Pentax K5/7. Job Sorted and I'm coming back...
If you'll have me
Cheers Jules...

It'd be interesting to hear what you bought (cameras and lenses) and why you moved on from them (when you have the time - it sounds like an opus) !

Me too, along with any advantages the others might have had. You return shows these were obviously out weighed by the handling of the K5/7.

My own experience of the dark side is very limited, I believe CaNikon AF is better, but trying to help members of the local camera club find basic options in their menus does not tempt me to switch...

There is no end of craving (sony,nikon,cannon,). Hence contentment alone is the best way to happiness. Therefore, acquire contentment (pentax).

Welcome back.
All the best

The problem with Pentax DSLRs is not being able to put them down for any length of time...

So you now have a second mortgage to pay off!

Welcome back: you know it makes sense. Very astute partner you have.
Best wishes,

Andrew
