Yes, Nikon D80, D90, D7000 and then Pentax K5, K5 IIs and now the K3.

I am glad I made the switch and haven't looked back.

The D80 and D90 were excellent cameras, small and light. Then came the D7000. Bigger and heavier. That, coupled with my big 17-55 f/2.8 made me wanting for a small and light setup. I still wanted a top of the line camera and an OVF. Enter Pentax and the K5. The K5 and the small Limited lenses were an eye opener for me. The ergonomics of the camera just felt right, the camera seemed to melt in my hand. Together with the small, light and high quality lenses, I had a system I wanted to take everywhere. Pentax re-kindled my joy of photography. The autofocus was a bit iffy in the K5, the K5 IIs made it perfect. Now the K3. The K3 is better is many respects. The resolution is awesome. But it is bigger and heavier. Not big, but bigger. The K5 size was perfect IMO.
