Can't shoot wide with crop sensor

I'm curious as to why your alternative is the K5-II over a D7000 with a 35 f/1.8, and maybe the Nikon 16-85mm zoom lens? I don't know what the prices are going for in Europe but in the states, that should be a comparable price.

It really depends on what you want. If all you care about is shallow depth of field, and gritty night street photography, yeah the D600 might be a touch better. But if you like being able to shoot wide angle landscapes/cityscapes/architecture, having a little longer lens for better portraits, or decently long lenses for wildlife then the 50 is going to be very limited, and the D7000 is a very good camera for a very good price. There is no best for everyone solution, it depends on what you want to do.

need full frame if you want your wide angle lenses to actually be wide angle
