He stated he used such Pentax setup for several years? I wonder why it took him so long? As a professional he should have reacted earlier, so that part of his story I find idiosyncratic and odd. He'd better switched earlier, spared himself, and Pentax too.

I am as surprised as you, but for very different reasons. I wonder if he was playing to the interviewer's audience somewhat here. He sang Pentax's praises, to the heavens, in dozens and dozens of posts on this board across 2-3 years. Even when he eventually switched to Nikon, he gave the impression that it was a real wrench for him, and that he would keep a K-01 for some of his video work.

Here is a pretty typical thread of his from back in his Pentax days, FWIW:
