Depends. If I like the ergonomics I'll keep it. The idea of full frame is pretty alluring and there's no way I could justify owning it otherwise. Otherwise I'd probably sell it for a KP + paying my rent.

Luckily most of my kit IS full frame, so that wouldn't be a problem. I think the only lenses I own that aren't usable in full frame are my Tamron 17-50 and my 18-55.

That's good to know, because I've got the one that came with my K-01. I wouldn't have expected it to work.

I'll keep it if I win. Doesn't hurt to have a 2nd body.

Keep it and use it. I haven't had a Pentax full frame since my film cameras were retired to mostly decorative use, and a succession of digital bodies took over.

There certainly is. Of course, when it was film cameras I always lusted after the 120 and 126 large formats, but I could never afford them back then. There is always something bigger...

Keep it without question. My K3 would then become my spare/manual lens body

I still use mine by preference for macro and wildlife - higher pixel density, higher effective magnification for given focal length and (much) faster frame rate.
