Pentax passion

I'm delighted to join this group of Pentax devotees.
Let me introduce myself.

I bought my first Pentax from the Tax Free Zone in Bogotá, Columbia in the mid-80s. I was on a Fulbright and met a documentary photographer. On weekends, we would rent a jeep and drive into the countryside to take pictures. I must have consumed hundreds of rolls of Kodachrome and managed to capture a handful of worthwhile images (the colors have now shifted and I have struggled to restore their original vibrancy.) I am so thrilled with the quality and detail of the images I am able to shoot digitally without paying film/development prices.

Two years ago, I bought a K2000 and recently a K-01. I enjoy them both and am trying to figure out a strategy for deciding which one to take with me on a particular outing. I'd enjoy your suggestions on the choice of through-the-lens or rear display shooting.
