Potential upgrades from a K110D

You price range does limit your choices. However there are always options. A K10D would be an upgrade since with a firmware upgrade you could use non screwdrive lenses like Pentax's SDM or Sigma's HSM lenses. Also full weather sealing. A K20D would be the next step up from that giving you Live view capability and a CMOS sensor. Both camera will also accept a battery grip which will help stabilize longer lenses handheld and give you an extra battery. The other option that most would not consider is a K-01. The K-01 shares the same 16mp sensor as the K5 series. The K-01 can be a quirky little camera but once you get past it's limitations you can really get some nice results. Of course many people hate the lack of a view finder.

With modern software these days I think can much out the older cameras than back when they were new. Noise reduction software has come a long way. Shooting in RAW is a big help. I've seen some KS-1's go pretty cheap, right around your price range. It seems a used K50 body should not go for much more than 200 USD. The K50 is a very nice camera. I use mine right along with my K3.

Don't doubt the old K10D sensor.
