A Long Awaited Return to Pentax

I've posted a couple of random questions recently just clarifying a couple of questions in my mind.

My Mum and Grandfather were avid Pentaxians in the film days, I picked up Mum's MZ50 and got the itch.

My first DSLR was an istDS, then a K7 and K10D.

Then I got a motorsport photog contract with a national magazine and unfortunately the Pentax DSLR AF was not up to the job.

I switched to Nikon in 2007, D300s, D3s, D4s and some lovely long glass.

I've retired now and offloaded the Pro Nikon gear, I have a D850, D500 and some glass.

I'm tired of the size and weight of the D850 particularly, with the 24-70 f2.8 mounted its a beast to cart about.

So I'm contemplating a move back to my first love Pentax.

I'm hoping the K3III AF is now up to some BIF, excited new puppy images.

Starting off with a 35mm prime, then I hope to get the new 16-50 f2.8, I'll see where I go from there.
