I shot with both Pentax and Nikon, and only reason I went D7000 was I was using it for even photography and Pentax support for that category is not as good (flash and low light focus of the time).

For any other function I much preferred using my Pentax.  I had the K-5 and K-7, which are amazing feeling cameras, better built than a D7000, and the new K-3 is even better yet (but I haven't used this one).

So I think the new K-3 (and slightly older K-5II(s)) fix any of the low artificial light focus issues that plagued K-5 and K-7 in certain situations.  If I were to buy a Nikon or a Pentax today I would go with the Pentax, as I like light but well built cameras and I don't think there is a better SLR on the market which fits that need.  I shoot mostly mirrorless cameras now, but there are none with the same solid feeling as the top of the line K cameras.
