Leaving Olympus to go to Pentax is like trading in your reliable (but old) Honda Civic for a different Honda Civic of the exact same year. At least you know what's going on with the Honda you already own.

If you're going to leave Olympus, you better go to Nikon or Canon FF. Period.

I could not agree more. If you are going to split from the program you might as well go all the way. As 4/3 began to languish I considered going micro4/3 as it would be a different system, but I didn't want to feel like I was Olympus's bitch, so I got a Canon 5D MKIII. It is strong where my E-5 is weak i.e. high ISO shooting and much more sophisticated AF system. A K-5II would only nail half that equation. Plus there are many truly lust worthy lenses for Canon - with Pentax not so much.
