The green "blob" (it's actually a hexagon) is the focus confirmation. I believe all Pentax bodies share this feature. The red square indicates which focus point is being used.

Beautiful shots Michael! For that matter, don't doubt your K110's 6 mp sensor either - what kind of glass are you using? And RAW is absolutely the way to go with these older cameras. I have my *ist D set up for fulltime Takumar/m42 use, and really like the results. It has the same sensor as your K110D, and it really seems to be a good match for the Taks. Super Tak 35/3.5:

In your price range, you could probably look at at used K-x or K-r. They are turning up in the ~$150 range here on the PF Marketplace. More megapickles, and better high ISO abilities. Those bodies are similar in size and feel to your K110D, and can take AA's. Or you could look at a K10D, with CCD output similar to your K110D, except with higher resolution (10 mpx). Pro-style body with bigger VF, great handling and weather-sealing. They have been routinely turning up on the Marketplace in the $100-150 range.

What's your budget? I was able to extend the usability of my K100D by purchasing an OM-E53 eyepiece magnifier. It makes using manual focus lenses much easier, especially with the K100D's smaller pentamirror VF (same as your K110's). For about $200 you can upgrade to a used K5, which would see you through for many years.
