Will you sell your current camera when the new K comes?

So when the new APS-C flagship comes, will you keep your current camera and buy the new one or sell your camera and upgrade?

Personally, I might go either route. I don't really need 2 cameras but occasionally I've felt as though I could've used 2 cameras in certain situations.

When I get paid to shoot, I can't show up at the shoot with only one camera in case that's the day it decides to die.

Right now I'm carrying my K-5 and K-S2...
Before that, I had a K-S2 and K-X, but sold the K-X when I got the K-5.
Before that, I had a K-S2 and a *ist DS, sold the *ist once I got the K-X.

I do plan to buy the new APS-C, but I am on the fence whether to sell the K-5 or the K-S2...

Right now I'm leaning on selling the K-5 since it's not fully compatible with the PLM apertures.

Sorry, I meant "suggestively borrow but not return" a camera.

for me it could go either way, probably wait for the second hand market, pick it up low mileage. But I won't sell the K-5, might sell the K-3, but probably not.

I meant not everyone wants to buy the camera.

I'll most likely be doing that too. I know I won't have the funds available to buy new. At least buying second hand, you won't have to deal with the kinks of being an early adopter.

I can't really think of a killer feature the new DLSR will have that would convince me to buy it, as I would need to sell my K-3 II and/or K-70 to do so.

The one path that would lead me to the new APS-C - or perhaps even a K-1 - would be to sell both bodies and a bunch of lenses and almost completely reconfigure my kit. But if I were to go that route, I would also seriously consider other brands.

If you do decided to sell, what would make you choose to keep your K-5 over the K-3?

This is an obvious "get your posts up" thread. But, no, the K-3 is more than enough for me for a while yet.
