Not thinking about switching to NEX from K5

After some consideration, and with the help of some of the earlier comments in this post, I have decided to stay with my K5. I'm further orienting my lenses around just primes, and will be making a few changes. I'm also hoping to liquidate enough that I can get a Sony RX100. I figure it will take the place of a mid-range zoom, and I'll always keep it in my pocket. I'll turn to Pentax and primes for more thoughtful photography.

In particular I appreciated Zvonimir Tosic's very sarcastic comment above about switching. I really like the lens selection with Pentax. Small quality. Unique. There will be lots of camera bodies coming and going over the years ahead. These lenses will still be what they are. Carrying around the 21mm is very rangefinder like. So that's the dslr experience I'm going to commit to.
