Nobody asked you what lenses you have

Hey guys!

I'm a brazilian Pentaxian, and i have a Pentax K-30 and 9 lenses.

I've been thinking about jumping ship to Canon/Nikon/Sony or even mirrorless (Olympus) because i've been facing problems with AF. I feel it's simply too slow and inconsistent (as in i spend hours doing af fine adjust, but sometimes it will simply, randomly focus incorrectly).

Do you guys think i would see improvement switching to a Nikon D7000?

What about a Canon? 60d, 7d? (but i guess i would lose in image quality)

Any help? It would be tough to get a K-3 here because it's not so easy to get Pentax items here, and by jumping ship i would be able to sell all my lenses and invest in the camera and new equipment...getting a K-3, i wouldn't want to sell lenses.


Before I would say stay or switch... it would help to know what lenses you have? If you have some of the very best lenses, then I would recommend an upgrade on the body to a K5lls or a K3...

If you have lower/mid level lenses I would say that switching would be easier. The 7100 would be better than the D7000...
