K3, K5iis or keep my trusty K5

I have loved my K5 for many years now. It has been to mt amazing camera I have owned to date. Now, I find myself with the funds to upgrade, a broken lens release button to boot, but wonder if it is worth it.

The resolution is a definite pro, but I do fear a loss of DR and increase in noise. Is there a consensus here for the K3? What about K5iis?

Is the light metering improved?
At tracking as good as they say?

Also, forgive my ignorance, bit the lack at an anti aliasing filter allows finer details and improves colors but at cost of noise or ????

I shoot primarily wildlife and some landscapes as some may know.
