First you complain about this:

Look carefully before you leap. Some things a potential new DSLR buyer should know about Pentax are...

  • you'll have no full-frame upgrade path.

And then, the solution:

If I didn't have so much invested in K-mount gear right now, Micro Four-Thirds is where I'd want to be. MFT gear doesn't fully take the place of a good DSLR kit in some situations but it is easy to use in ways and places that DSLR gear often isn't.

MFT being locked in an even smaller format than APS-C (OTOH Pentax is actually working on a FF camera, even though it's nowhere near).

Choose wisely how you spend your money for the long-term by having a lens roadmap planned out in advance. If the camera system you're contemplating doesn't provide an attractive future roadmap for lens purchases, best to either wait or look elsewhere.

Let me guess... MFT is producing more roadmaps than lenses?

But Pentax can make 3 roadmaps at once, that's a win!
