Yes, I think I will be going this Pentax route as well. Especially considering the new AA-less K-5IIs. And, I have absolutely no interest in m4/3 for a number of reasons.

With this news I know I am done with Olympus... there is no sense in delaying the inevitable by wasting more money on more used Olympus gear (I feel I wasted tons of money already on 4/3 gear in recent years and this news confirms it)... I was waiting for confirmation from Oly one way or the other on future 4/3 bodies and it looks like the confirmation is not what I had hoped.

Goodbye Olympus... HELLO Pentax! The wife won't be happy that I need to start buying a complete new system, but I am excited to be stepping up into a much more attractive system... finally. The only problem is that I am left wishing I went with Pentax rather than Olympus back when I first bought my E-620. That was a very costly mistake.

What makes you so sure that Pentax will still be around in a shrinking DSLR market?

The road of the main DSLR brands looks quite bumpy and it remains to be seen who will survive financially.
