Pentax K-1 II upgrade

so i found a good deal, to trade my Pentax K-1 (3 years old) and get for 350$ more the K-1 II. What do you think? for one, i have again 2 years warranty.. 0 clicks and 10% better AF. Better deal then the upgrade service

I would do it without hesitating. The camera is incrementally better, and those two years of warranty are interesting. Resale value will also be higher a few years down the road.

Using your K-1 had a cost of only 10 $ a month........that is a not to expensive hobby I would say.
