K20D & the K200D for a back up, well it's not really a backup, its my pickup on the run camera, with a fixed [might as well be] DA 18-250mm

Seriously looking at the K5 replacment though.

I own both a K-5 and K10D, but the K10D has not been used for a while now.

Hmmm....where are the K-r users? Curious if the K-x was on its own category how would it fair against the others?
I too wonder about that. I have a K-x...no BU. I am thinking of getting a K20D or K-7 or K-5.

Mostly K5 with AF or MF K-mount glass.
K10D with M42 glass if I want to have a bit of fun.

Hey, you *ist guys better stock up on 1 and 2 cards. I found out it wont run on cards bigger than 2. I tried some 4 and 8 cards in it and it rejected it. Had a hard time finding small cards. Everything at Walmart is 4 and above pretty much.

Are you using the latest firmware? I've been using 4 gb CF cards in my istD for a couple yrs. (The other ist's use SD cards)

Just put a 4Gb card in my *st DL and no problems. Firmware update allows the use of 4Gb and higher cards.

For what it is worth...
We got a K-x for my wife.
A clear glass K-x for infrared and variations.
Three K200Ds with grips, the workhorses of the household.
A silver *ist DL
And a *ist D with grip.

All slow and all used exclusively with manual focus lenses.
They seem to work and resolve.

From the last family reunion.

Firmware is the oparating software of the camera. Like Windows 7 or XP on a IBM style computer.

Here is the updates but follow the directions real close.

*ist DL firmware update.
