Poor phrasing! I guess I mean am I becoming too dedicated to Pentax to feel like a full switch to Fuji would be foolish? I have an X100, but buying an XT-1 would mean a new investment in lenses when I already have quite a few k-mount lenses for my Pentax. No missing the boat, just wondering if I am holding out for something like the XT-1 from Pentax that may never come.

If you want something like the XT-1, then I wouldn't wait around for Pentax to deliver it. It would be a long shot for Pentax to do something similar, in my opinion. Sell your Pentax gear and consider any loss a rental fee for however long you've used your Pentax gear. You can check out how much it costs to rent equipment, which I think you'll find would be a lot more than what you might lose selling your Pentax gear, so you can walk away happy.

You should wait until CP+ is over though, as you never know.

Thank you

Good advice, but I love Pentax too much to switch. I still love shooting with my K-5. If nothing appears on the horizon, I may get the XT-1 to supplement my Pentax gear. Tice the fun (but twice the expense.)
