On article Shaking up the market: Pentax K-70 Review (380 comments in total)

Informative review. I am looking at upgrading from K110D to add capabilities primarily for landscape and nature (audience is self, family and friends), which would include: decent video, good continuous focus for wildlife, easy sharing capability, and a pivoting touchscreen would be nice. So, I'm disappointed that the K-70 does a relatively poor job in these areas (my hopes were much higher). So my choices are: 1) wait until Pentax brings out something that meets my needs, 2)change systems to ..? (I do like flexibility) trying to stay under $1000 with body and 2 zooms (kit). The Nikon d5500 appears to fit a system change, but it sounds like the burst buffer is too small/slow to practically shoot more than app 5 frames before it really slows. The Canon 80D would be about perfect but at best it is $300 over budget. Thinking Canon t6i is a decent compromise, albeit not perfect, within budget. Any bets how soon Pentax will come up with a body with decent continuous autofocus??
