Gain all the way

Gain or lose? Flip screen would be very beneficial to me...........

I made that very switch 2 years ago and never looked back. I dearly loved my K-5 IIs (with grip) but being able to shoot architecture straight up, close-ups and low-level without muddy trousers and turning the flip-LCD to protect the screen when the cam is in my laptop backpack on business travel...priceless! Also, high-ISO is consistently better than the K-5 IIs. Big thing to me is also the option to make a timed 300 sec (5 minutes) exposure with a ND1000 rather than being forced to use and external trigger/timer remote is really great. Have used wifi sparingly but on occasion it can be a lifesaver.
