It seems we always have this dilemma with new cameras. In general I agree with those who say to sell both unless you have a specific use for one of the old cameras. Otherwise they just sit unused like my MX which I will not sell for sentimental reasons.
Hey I might consider selling both DSLRs if you'd sell me your MX ...if it's minty. :-) . That's my favorite camera of all time.

Yep, perhaps the use of third party attachments may poof the warranty. Anything is possible
Yes, don't even think of using a non-Pentax lens cap or camera bag either. It's too risky.

Yes. It was my only camera for more than twenty years. I recently bought some film to see how it works after all these years. I also still have, and use from time to time, the M50 1.7 that came with it in 1978. I plan to take the film in today.

My wife says there is keeping old things that are good for their good-ness, and then there is obsessive hoarding.

My SV is in the former camp.

When it came to the point that i had to take my K2 out for a walk and burn a roll just to keep it exercised so it didn't have to go to Eric a second time to fix the ASA ring that hadn't been moved since 2006 I knew I was guilty of obsessive hoarding. I still have more cameras than I need and less than I want, but at least I have a use for them all, including the K10D.

Keep the K10D if you will use it. Otherwise the money you could get for it is ten or fifteen percent of a K3.

How much would an IR conversion cost?

You jest, I assume?
That's my hope...

In order to help others understand, please ask Pentax (or Nikon, or Canon, or Sony, etc.) to help you resolve a problem you are having with your non-branded lens, or flash, or battery, etc. on their camera body and how it affects their warranty, then share their answer...

If there was a problem with a third-party accessory I think I would ask Sigma or Tamron or Metz or Eneloop or any of a host of third-party manufacturers Pentax and every other manufacturer tacitly encourages to produce fitting accessories and lenses for their cameras.

Modding the camera voids the warranty. Using a fitting accessory doesn't.

But then you know that.

the ccd sensor offers a point of difference in rendering and tones imo, and you will probably never see one in a pentax body ever again.
Unless you get a 645D.

IMO- no reason to keep the K10D, if you get a K-3 it will really feel archaic (it already does beside the K-5 IMO). Sell it and use the money toward a nice new prime
Not going to argue with that, certainly in terms of features...but nothing feels like a K10D(except the K20, of course), and as was mentioned above, the K10D at ISO 100 is still great.

So how much is a mint K10D selling for these days? I think if its less than $225 I'd be better off keeping it. How about a K-5?
