I'm thinking about switching to NEX from K5+

NEX is great, but it isn't a proper DSLR camera!

I have a lot of Pentax SLR gears, but also NEX-C3.

I like compactness of NEX system when I don't want to carry the big camera equipment with. I also have Pentax K (+M42 & Nikon) adapter to NEX. Sometimes I enjoy use my Pentax 100/2.8 WR macro with NEX, and that's because of tilting screen and focus peaking.

However, small NEX camera can't replace proper DSLR camera like my Pentax K-5! With big tele lenses NEX it's awful small and impractical (even NEX models with EVF).

There aren't any fast normal AF zooms for NEX system (like 17-50/2.8). And, presumably, one would be too big anyway.

Small NEX camera can't offer that kind of ergonomics as DSLR camera.

After all, I really like my NEX, as I like my Pentax DSLR gears - you just need choose a suitable tool for what you are doing.
