Gosh, the K-5. When Olympus quit making DSLRs I moved to Pentax and started with their K20D. Then I got a K-7. Then I got a K-5 and it was the best camera I'd owned to that time. But then I got the K-5ii and thought it marginally better than the K-5. Then I got a K-3 and thought it superior to the K-5ii and this seemed only natural since the K-3 had 24MP to the K-5ii (and the K-5)'s 16MP.


i envy you guys getting a lot of hardware upgrade

I just got a lowly K70 when my vintage K20D has got some issue. And I am happy

D Tong,

All you have to do to be able to do this is work 39 years at Douglas, McDonnell Douglas, Boeing (without ever being laid off) and then retire with a good pension.  Seems like it was all pretty simple.  Of course I'm now 82 years old and my memory isn't what it used to be.
