My same reply to "similar" thread;

I think in short the answer is, if the new body has features that you need or want go for it and keep your K10D as a second body.

If you not 100% sure, with the money you've saved by not buying the body, feed you LBA and get some more glass instead.

new K20D body: $740
K10D on used market: $350

You have to decide on what the features are worth to you and put a number on it...

Thank you for the fast replies so far.

I think that I will mull it over for the next couple of days or so.

I had not realised that so many people had asked the same question before - I should have scanned the forum more carefully beforehand

Oh...........and a very happy and peaceful New Year to all

Unfortunately I was looking through a different thread when I thought of this question

I could not see how to delete the original erroneous thread.

One of the moderators has very kindly deleted it for me.

Just an honest mistake

No harm done. Hope you found an answer to your question.

Indeed yes. Thanks again to everyone for their replies.

The 100 cashback for K20D with lens ends on 31st Jan, so I will sit on the fence for another 2 or 3 weeks before deciding.

Just for information, the best deal I have seen in the UK is at Digital Depot - 566.68 with Pentax 18-55mm II Lens Kit and free Pentax AF-200FG flashgun(just in case it helps anyone).

I promise that I have no affiliation with the above company

And Thanx to our new moderator Gary for the assist. I was one who requested the two be merged. As an FYI for the future, if you need moderation assistance, you can actually 'Report' your own post by clicking the flag at the bottom left of your own post and request moderation assistance against it. That feature's use is usually to 'complain' about a post but it can also serve the need described too.

So when does K30D come out? Out of curiosity.

I have an *istDL and decided that I will be saving my pennies to buy a K20D this year (hopefully doesn't take too long). I think the upgrade for me would be worth it. I've been keeping on eye on BeachCamera for the K20D body and it's $728 with 4gb sdhc card, extra 2 year warranty and a gadget bag. I'm hoping the prices drop a little more before I buy.
