Would you comfortably recommend somebody today, to invest in Pentax system from scratch?

No. For a new/first-time buyer who might never buy a second lens, my recommendation would be the cheapest Nikon DSLR available at store (D3500 at the moment). It is simply the best value-for-money for a new/first-time buyer OR the cheapest Sony MILC  available if making videos is a priority. In theory, I could also get a Nikon again, and buy a Tokina 35mm f/2.8 Macro lens which is optically same as my DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited, but I wouldn't, because I like ergonomics on my K-30--however, that does not mean I start giving biased recommendations to others!

Kind regards,
