    I really like pentax for non full frame stuff they are great value for money.

      I just love how you can get a 40 year old manual focus lens and just bolt it on and it works. I have perhaps 15 lenses, along with a range of filters, extension tubes and flashes, for my K50 collected from ebay and gumtree. I might have spent around $200 all up.

      No love for K1?

    I voted for the deal but …
    Pentax is lagging way behind Sony, Canon, and Panasonic in terms of video shooting.
    No IS (digital IS sucks), no decent C-AF, no good codecs.

      Pentax is lagging way behind Sony, Canon, and Panasonic in terms of video shooting.

      You're right, Pentax is terrible for video. But if you want a decent video camera, you're better of not buying a DSLR anyway.

      The biggest drawback of the Pentax cameras as far as I'm concerned is their slow autofocus makes them a bad choice for sports or action photography.

      They do have IS, they use an in-body IS which I actually prefer - makes lenses cheaper and means that it still works with older lenses. If you upgrade your camera, you upgrade the IS without having to buy new lenses, and I can make use of the IS even using my lenses from the 70's.

        Yes…the IS in Pentax has a good reputation, and is not digital - it is a physical arrangement (sensor movement), and works well even with vintage lenses. The points on AF and video are valid. I do love my K5 though, and my growing collection of lenses including vintage and modern. Hoping for a decent replacement for the K5 in the coming year or two.

    Much, much better off going Nikon or Canon for a bit more.
    Better noise performance, better AF options.

    I've seen Ryda do the Nikon D7200 body only for under $100. You'd probably want the kit lens AF-P 18-55DX and the 70-300 AF-P DX VR. You'd be look around $1400. Filters and SD card extra.
    JBHiFi recently had the Canon 80D with 18-55 STM for $1070. So a bit more and no second lens. You'd add the 55-250STM for about $300. for a total of under $1400. Filters and SD card extra.

    Both are a couple of years old now, and the D7200 has been superceded but check out the image quality in the studio comparison tool on DPreview compared to the Pentax.

    My opinion: The Canon isn't as nice ergonomically as the Nikon, but does do much video better (especially live view AF). has a faster frame rate, and JPG colours are nicer without tweaking. The Nikon has slightly better IQ, feels better in the hand, is more customizable and intuitive (much easier for action shooting. Pity neither have a joystick). I don't shoot much video and if I had to pick I'd go the D7200. (I do not like what Nikon did with the D7500 and it is much more expensive.)

    I am a main Nikon user, and also have Canon and Pentax DSLRs. I personally like the K-70 for it's weather resistant quality, which is the best in terms of quality and price ratio. For places that have a lot of water moisture or dust, like desert, forest or beach areas, I will use my K-70 which does a great job! Just don't use it for video like what the others have mentioned. I always prefer a dedicated video camcorder for serious videography.

    RRP: individually nearly comes to 2k when adding up it all up.

    You could keep the 40mm. Sell the other 2 & have enough for another nice lens

    Pentax glass is great.

    Also available the 18-135mm WR bundle at the same price, not sure which one is better.
