Re: Pentax appeal

I'm a Canon shooter (5DII) but have seriously considered adding a K-5 or K-30 with one or two compact lenses as a travel setup. Not sure if that's the best idea due to having to invest in a second set of lenses. However, I think I would really enjoy the smaller form of the K-5 or K-30. The extra weather sealing and durability would be great here in Alaska. That's a big selling point to me. In addition, the sensors in these cameras seem fantastic. I also really like that you can use decades-worth of Pentax lenses. My first SLR was a K-1000.

Downsides are having to build a second lens collection, and from what I hear, Pentax has raised their prices...
