Anyone still using the K-R?

I have a 28mm f/2.8 "A" laying around.

Selling off my cherished Canon 5D (original) because I just don't like carrying that kind of weight anymore.

Dipped my toe into the M4/3's arena over the summer and not liking the Lumix G5 as I find it too small to effectively control. Before I drop big cash on something like the Olympus EM-1 and some pretty pricy glass I'm willing to give Pentax one more shot.

The K-R is only a half a pound lighter than the 5D but Pentax primes have to factor into the equation somewhere too.

I don't want to hog wild on glass until I am sure about the system I will be moving too.

The easier change would be the Canon Rebel series but of course neither Canon nor Nikon have made any APS-C wide angle primes.

suggestions?
