How about money to put the systems together?

Sony

  • Nex-6, US $848
  • SEL1018, US $848
  • SEL24mm, US $1,098
  • SEL35mm, US $448
  • SEL50mm, US $298
  • Total US $3540

Pentax lighter weight system

  • K-5IIs, US $1,299
  • DA 12-24, US $730
  • DA 21mm f3.2, US $647
  • DA 35mm f2.4, US $217
  • DA 50mm f1.8, $247
  • Total US $3140

Trying to be a bit more fair with the apertures:

Sony

  • Nex-6, US $848
  • SEL1018, US $848
  • Sigma 19mm/2.8, US $200
  • Sigma 30mm/2.8, US $200
  • SEL50mm, US $298
  • Total US $2394

Pentax lighter weight system

  • K-5IIs, US $1,299
  • DA 12-24, US $730
  • DA 21mm f3.2, US $647
  • DA 35mm f2.4, US $217
  • DA 50mm f1.8, $247
  • Total US $3140

Let's subtract $450 from the Pentax side as the NEX-6 is comparable to a K-30 in features.  Now who really wants to give up OS just to use those cheap Sigma primes?
