So, why Pentax?

For me, the only reason "why Pentax?" is that they might make an adapter that is a full KAF2 mount for my K mount lenses, including screw drive and closing the aperture. And also, of course, just as easy use of legacy lenses as Pentax DSLR.

I think selling cameras and lenses to K-mount users makes a stronger business case.

If the adapter is good enough - that is exactly what they do + selling mirror less lenses.

That's an assumption built on the premise that K-mount users are generally unhappy with the K-mount cameras and they're looking for something else. I really don't think that's true...

Besides, the OP already have some 100 lenses or so
