K10 vs K20d K7 vs K5?

As weird as this sounds, im thinking about starting a camera collection. Im not interested in owning everything, just maybe bodies that were special in a certain era.

I am thinking K10d, Fuji S5 Pro, Minolta 7d or maybe an A350 to get the 14mp CCD sensor. I get an odd sense of satisfaction using old gear, i like the challenge. What non medium format digital body do you think represents pentax in its prime? Ive owned a K10, K200d, KX, K01, K5. Never used a K7 or K20. I remember the K7 was controversial, people liked its ergonomics but its sensor / AF lagged behind?

For the Pentax brand I am leaning towards a K10 or K5iis. I think sony will fill my CCD obsession. I have lens adapters, but except for pancake primes, i really cant stand how it unbalances the body. I am not after best IQ, just the Pentax user experience.
