I am looking for a decent semi-pro camera. I found the Pentax range has some amount of weather resistance built in for the budget that I am on. Some basic research [dpreview.com] suggests the camera is comparable in features and performance to Canon and Nikon cameras of equal / similar price.
Pentax K-5 II DSLR Camera with 18 to 55mm WR Lens Kit
The question I have is:
Should I get the Pentax K 5 II or should I look around for a more popular brand? If not this camera, which ones would you suggest?
Please note, this is my first DSLR (have a fujifilm bridge which I love very much).
Apologies for the wall of text.
