Very difficult indeed. I know I'll enjoy the WR for sure so perhaps a good compromise is a K30. Just not sure if it is better in most respects to the D5100 but it sure has more features and less than the $400 difference.
The thing that irritates me the most is that, at least on Amazon, there ain't a lot lenses for Pentax. The ones I was looking at, like the sigma 150-500mm only has canon, nikon, or sigma mount, and tamron also only run canon, nikon or sony mount for the $100 rebate. Of course, that's just Amazon. But the fact that I might need to pay more for each lens I get kind of eat the saving of buying this. The Sony A77 kit for $1300 might just be the better choice then. It is a WR body too? (that expired, I know) Sony also has a built-in GPS, which is quite a useful feature for road trip. When I upload pics from my phone, I can see the location on my skydrive.
