the FF better have
A FF sensor, K mount for lenses, manual operation and big bright viewfinder and I'm good to go, preferably with a Pentax name on in it, no fancy stuff required from me.

Want to bet that you're older than I am
Well you can see my age from my profile and I'm too much of a Gentleman to ask for yours.

Well you appear to have the edge on me, but I look a lot older than you, as I had a hell of a paper round.

That must have been taken in poor lighting conditions, when your true radiance was not allowed to shine through.

What can I tell you? not that much it would seem, as you may well have already heard it all before.

Here's how I see the current models, as a K-s1 user -
  • K-50 has the great K-5ish sensor and WR, excellent deals now
  • K-5 is an excellent choice even today, especially if gently used
  • II adds -3EV focusing, if you need that
  • IIs no AA filter, if sharp/detail is your thing
  • my K-s1 is missing a few key features but excellent 20Mpx filterless sensor, great images and easy to carry
  • K-3 is excellent and full-featured w/ more Mpx, focus points and f/2.8 types, but approaching big & bulky (for me)
  • K-3 II adds extra SR stop and pixel shifting to an excellent K-3
But my next body will likely be the K-s2. Smaller than most, great K-s1 sensor but adds WR, dial #2 and interval shot/movie/composite features. It also has the flip screen (will get some use) and WiFi (very little) - but depending on prices in a couple of months this is where I'm leaning. If the 3IIs drops enough I'll tolerate the bulk

As for age - I'll be 244 on Halloween (Mercury standard years)!

Jim, thanks! Unless I'd find a K5IIs with a very low shutter count, I do think the KS2 would be fine for me. I'm sure it wouldn't be long before I'd stop missing the top LCD. I also want to keep having the two dials. WR is a high priority for me also. Smaller is better for me, as I have very small hands; so everything but the top LCD fits for me getting the KS2. Black Friday, I'm waiting!
