Help Choosing New-To-Me Pentax DSLR
Feb 25, 2014

I'm a photography enthusiast who shoots mostly landscapes and pictures of my daughter. I'm moderately invested in the Pentax system with 4 lenses (10-20mm, 18-55mm, 50mm, 70-300mm). My K10D has served me well, but I haven't been shooting much lately because my 2 stage button has very little first stage and I'm becoming increasingly frustrated by the autofocus on the K10D. I see that I have a few upgrade options through the used market.

K-7: $280

K-5: $475

K-5II: $600

K-5IIs: $800+ship+tax (new)

I've read the reviews but have a hard time putting a dollar value on the features. I lean towards the K-5. I know the II has better autofocus and LCD, but is it $125 better than the K-5? I can't imagine that the IIs is worth $200+ship+tax over the II. And is the K-5 worth $195 over the K-7?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
