Future resale value of Pentax camera bodies and lenses may be a positive.

Pentax gear has tended to have a lower resale value than other brands, especially camera bodies. I will be watching to see how this new pricing will affect used body as well as lens pricing in future. If Pentax maintains higher prices for resale then I can see this as being potentially on the positive side of the issue. So I'm not seeing this as being completely from a negative viewpoint.

I think not jumping over to over brands isn't necessarily warranted unless particular gear needs is only available from other brands.

Wait and see for now.
At any given moment, there is a sort of all pervading orthodoxy, a general tacit
agreement not to discuss large and uncomfortable facts… Anyone who
challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising
effectiveness. - George Orwell

“It's not a matter of whether the war is not real, or if it is, Victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. … The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over [the purported enemy], but to keep the very structure of society intact.” George Orwell, 1984
