WR on mediocre lenses. Not a good deal imho. you'd be better off waitinf or a pentax deal with the 55-300mm which is actually quite good.
Also, Pentax's future is in doubt . they ahven't released a new sensor since the k5 years ago. The camera line has hit financial troubles, and the brand has sold off. their "new" cameras are just repackaged k5 sensors. sony/nikon/canon have all released new sensors recently.
I'm have a pentax and would recommend anyone buying in to the system at this point. The problem, pentax bodies are too few compared to the big boys. I'm seeing less and less deals from 3rd party lens manufacturers like sigma and pentax lens themselves. Also, sigma gives you less lens for the same $ compared to canikon. The HSM motor developed don't come included on the pentax version.
To top it off, the dslr market is shrinking and being consume the m43 market, and mirrorless apsc market (nex and samsung).
Not true, Pentax uses third party sensors so they can buy the new one if they are available. Canon is the one in trouble. They use their own sensors and there is no new development since the 60D/T2i. They keep using the same sensor for the newest model.
