to keep the B&H BF K-5II or just do K-3?

Background: Have a K-01 + bunch of gr8 primes: 15, 31, 43, 77 and 18-250 .... sold my Kx recently in the hope of moving to a A7/r + FA limiteds + K-01+18-250 for travel. I find the K-01 to be great for still shots but my 3yr is too quick for a mirror less (tried to use a EOS-m + 22/2 and get only 50% usable shots).

BH had the K-5II (along with the 18-135) and I pulled the trigger. I can obviously return it (I haven't even opened it) or I can just skip the K-5 series and get the K-3 (will wait for the prices to fall down by a few hundred as I prefer to invest in lenses instead!).

Thoughts? Comments?
