I'm somewhat in Canon (one body, five lenses), but mostly in Pentax. I think the original post does provide a cogent argument for moving from Canon to Pentax. Pentax is weak in some areas (most notably flash, video and sports photography), but is superior for mid-range dSLRs in overall operational design, image quality, build, and the ability to get good optics at reasonable prices (especially if you are willing to try vintage MF lenses). You can't do better than K mount on a tight budget if you are mostly interested in fast glass.

Hi can you elaborate about sport photography? I am in the same boat and was looking at
K-30/K5-II/ Sigma 50-150 HMS as a sport set up.

Thanks
