Well... K20D with its Samsung sensor has somewhat different image than all those Sony sensors used in all later introduced cameras. With base ISO it is very good landscape performer. And I clearly remember, that when I bought K5 I was impressed by AF and video and other stuff. But that I was missing those colours and specific rendering of K20D..
And when I take the old one for walk time to time, it really can shine if light is good.. It was almost incredible image output in early 2008. Especially for that price. AF is slow, LiveView weak, hi-iso is weak.. but that image output at low iso is perfectly usable even for large output files.
