Re: Pentax has a nice walk-around zoom lens? LOL!

The DA40 is on the other hand a superb lens - small (pancake) and sharp. DA70 and DA15 are two minute primes that will produce excellent shots, every time.

For really nice shots I'd say go for the OM-D, as its excellent anti-shake will save the day, again and again! The Olympus 75/1.8 is superb, as is Panasonic 20/1.7. To your OM-D you can add an Four Third lens adapter, and use your old lenses!

Another superb camera is the NEX-6 with the Zeiss 1.8/24, and/or the Sigma 19/2.8. No anti-shake at all with these lenses, but superb quality (Leica class!). Sony's 50/1.8 with OSS is good they say, but many of the Sony lenses are not!

I've got the NEX-5N (nice, but no built-in viewfinder), Nikon V1 (I just love it), and a D600, the wife has the 5N and OM-D, and soon a K-30. We used to be K-5 owners, by the way ;-)!
