Hi everyone, I'm currently strongly considering selling the K5 and all my Pentax kit and would just like a little input because I know others on these forums have also sold their K5's (or dslr), I'd love to hear why you sold your K5 (or dslr) if you were one of those who sold theres, or maybe just general for and against arguments which I may have missed below, so far my thoughts are: The main reasons for are large size/weight and strangely, it just doesn't feel right anymore (can't really explain why, it feels a bit of a burden? could just be my boredom though lol). I this is related to my "Help! ''Off-photography period' :-( " thread where everyone helped me come up with the idea of having a camera on my person always to help me take more photos lol. Another reason for selling, potential for back/front focusing lenses is higher compared to contrast detect, though I've been lucky and had perfect copies so far (touch wood). I also wanted the 16-50mm DA* to make a good weather resistant combo for winter snow and rain, but the focus motor is notorious for failing I guess had it been ok I'd have put up with the above and got another camera for my everywhere set up lol Against: The biggest reason has to be the big financial loss on the K5 body, I'd lose 50% of what I paid for it (ouch!), due to heavy discounts and Xmas build up cash back promo in the UK. And finally i lose the great ergonomics, weather resistant body, and user interface when I can be bothered to carry it lol.
