Actually I been thinking of my next move and if it not would make more sence to buy an aditional body Fuji XT-1 with wideangel zoom to pair with my K5 and 50-135. I also have the fuji x100 and it is my favourite when I want to travel light. Fuji makes exxcellent cameras. Bur I also like the Pentax handling and the 50-135 is my favourite event lens. Cheers

Or consider the XF-55-200, which would replace your 50-135.

Mine arrived today, and I compared it against the DA 60-250, which is widely considered to be one of the finest Pentax lenses.

Taken as JPGs, the Fuji images bettered the K5IIs images @200mm by some margin ...  Add to that, the differences in high ISO performance, the lack of noise, and portability ....

The XT-T will no doubt improve on the X-E2 in many areas, and so the package may well be compelling, for me anyway. I have a largish collection of Pentax lenses, but can see the day when I have to question whether the Pentax system is right for my needs.  Most probably will reduce my Pentax useage to a few specialist lenses.
