Well, I ended up with 2 K100d bodies (the second is the Super).
At this time I see little reason to upgrade to a K20d.
Past experience upgrading from my first 2MP digicam to a 4MP model tells me, that one needs to at least quadruple resolution to really see a difference worthwhile a hefty investment.
So going from 6MP to to 14 MP is simply not worth the 1300 US Dolllars to me.
I miss the simply neat colors and crisp appearance of photos I got from my old 2MP Fuji 2600, a simple point and shoot - believe it or not
BUT shooting RAW I can get anything I want from my K100d pair.
Speed performance of the K20d has not improved past the K10d, which was a meager step up from the K100d.
I read mixed opinions about AF, so there is no reason there either.
Live View? I am going to buy a ZigView some time this year! Works on any camera, is as good for AF performance as the Sony implementation, because it is simply a viewfinder monitor, and I can use my K Mount glass, which I can not with a Sony (at least not without losing AF)
Now, if that rumor about a full frame K(x)d holds up, I may pounce - if my credit cards are paid down by then
I DO expect Pentax to finally listen to its user forums and reviewers and do something about shooting performance as well.
With the exception of full frame sensor bodies, the APS-C Picture quality is already there, so what we need with K-Mount glass, is better AF and frame speed!
Until then, my K100d and K100d-Super will be just fine, thank you
Unless of course Pentax really delivers a full frame body, then I will salivate, because that would make a really noticeable difference for us low light 'vampire lighting' shooters
To see what I mean:
For low light samples of K100 series bodies with the old Sony 6MP sensors take a peek here and look at the lead image for the Norwescon 2008 gallery, which is a 1-1 pixel crop (due to my lack of an exotic fast 200mm or longer f/2.8 piece of glass, this was with a Tammy 28-75 f/2.8 at 75mm). I have to say I was quite happy with the way they turned out - and I got a view shots NOBODY else made amongst the 3000 visitors:
THANK YOU for the great review work!
