look at the lenses

Have no lenses but am unsure of which to get. Any ideas?

This is the key. Decide what lenses you want to get, and base your decision around that.

The D7100 and K-5ii are really very similar cameras. There's differences, but on a grand scale, eh.

On the other hand, the lens lineups are fairly different; each system has unique lenses you won't find in the other. (I like Pentax specifically for the Limited primes.)

A similar consideration is flash: Nikon's CLS TTL system is significantly more advanced, and they have a greater range of flashes with more features.
