Yes. I switched from the K5 to the K3-II to give me more pixels for cropping pictures of moving wildlife. For anything else, my K5 was fine.

And my cameras are now the K3-II when I need the flexibility, my Ricoh WG-4 GPS, if it's raining hard, or my Sony RX100-V if it's not raining and I don't want to carry the K3. Any of them are fine, under appropriate conditions.

Above is the best advice you will get about the 'crop factor'. I use a K3-II, and a couple of 'point and shoot' cameras. The photo I will get is whatever I see through the viewfinder. That's all you need to be concerned about: what is the camera seeing.

The only relevance of the 'crop factor' is for people who had lots of experience with 35 mm cameras -- such as me -- who were switching to digital. It helped us visualise what a particular combination of camera and lens would 'see'. I still find that helpful for my DSLR but that is because I used 35 mm cameras for a long time. It is not at all helpful for my point and shoot cameras.
