Great shots!

I loved my K-7, one of the reasons being that it feels so good in the hand. Hefty, solid, but not unwieldy. Great ergonomics, as someone commented. I bought mine used in 2012, and it served me well until Nov. 2019. It's now stuck on manual focus, and I've tried all the recommended fixes. No luck. And the worst part of it was that I had finally taken the time to really push my own limits with it and was getting some great images from it. Using it on a fairly basic level (more than just program mode, but not a lot of experimenting with settings) was giving me what I needed, but I was finally doing "more" with it.

Now I'm looking for a K-70 or a K-5IIs, and it's quite a dilemma. The K-5 IIs is so much like the K-7 that I'd feel really comfortable with it. OTOH, I feel like it would be nice to have something newer.
