My lightweight set-up includes a K-5, K5IIs, 31mm, 77mm, 60-250mm and Ricoh GR. I would like the option of something wider but want to keep size and weight in keeping with the above.

Hello, everybody I have Nikon D5000 with 18-55mm VR, and 55-200mm VR. Also, i have Pentax K-x with some M42 lenses.  I want some upgrade, thus im thinking of K7100 with 18-140mm VR or Pentax either K# or K5iis with 18-135mm. Pentax K50 has low price $526 with 2 kit lenses 18-55mm and 50-200mm Now in my country Nikon D7100 with 18-14omm has a price as Pentax k3 18-145  Pentax k5iis with 18-135mm is less than above ($500) I need any suggestions with regards.

How do you handle a buyer who claims the item he purchased is not working properly? When you know it was working perfectly when shipped. I up grated from K-5ll to K-5lls.
