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.

The only sound choices are really canikon and it's been like that since the beginning of all of this. Getting into another odd system from an odd manufacturer that has changed hands several times doesn't sound like a sure thing if you ask me, especially after your experience with Olympus i'd imagine one would probably want to go after a foundation that hasn't been shaky. Don't mean to offend pentax users, just calling it how it is.
