Potential upgrades from a K110D

I'm one of them. Velvia 50 was my favourite film. I guess I just love those special greens. I liken the K-3 output more towards Kodachrome 25. Punchy but natural. I set my JPG rendition to natural and do any other punchy in post.

My K10D worked very well for a long time. Check out my Flickr site - most of the images are K10D. I owned it from November 2007. I still love the low ISO colours of the CCD sensor, but being more interested in chasing birds and animals than scenery (although I take those pictures as well) when my K10D (probably had 50,000 or more on it - I kept nearly 20,000) started acting up and I got some bonus money I spent C$525 on a lightly used K-3.

The K-3 is much better for some things, but last weekend in the Devonian Gardens near Edmonton Alberta, I would have been just as happy with the K10D - and didn't have quite so much PP to do to get the colours I wanted.

All Pentax DSLRs can use the older lenses. I have recently moved from a K10D to a K-3 without losing the use of the M 400/5.6, M100/4 macro or Takumar 55/1.8 (with adapter to screw mount of course). Any of the newer ones would upgrade your camera features. I bought the K10D new in 2007, and only moved up to the K-3 when it started to show the age of the innards. It froze up several times requiring a battery out restart, and I had put aside enough money to buy the K-3 used. The thing I notice the most is going from CCD sensor that showed excessive noise at 800 ISO to the K-3 is the noise level is way lower with the CMOS sensor. In common with others, I prefer the low ISO colours on the CCD sensor in the K10 to the colours on the CMOS sensor. On the other hand, getting to be able to use higher ISO numbers is a huge benefit.
