Just need to check ...
1

Hi all. Just wondering about buying a K-70 body to replace my K10 which I've had since 2007! I have a few manual lenses and the lens that came with the K10 and I need to check with you guys that these lenses will be compatible with the K-70?

That's it in a nutshell.  What worked on the K10 will work on K70. Just remember there is a menu option to set for non A series lenses!   The default is "don't let the shutter fire if the lens isn't in the A position" and you need to change to "do let it ..."

Yes, of course - similarly with your K10D. And in addition you can use the new KAF4 lenses (like the DA 55-300 RE PLM).

Don't consider it a replacement (unless the K10D has "died"), but consider it a "system expansion" … there are those of us who think the older bodies with a CCD sensor can give a "different" (if not superior) appearance to some images

Other than that, go for it, the K-70 is a wonderful tool!

I hear what you are saying and agree. I keep all my cameras unless there is a major problem. And now and again it's nice to get one out. Sometimes it's just a familiarity in handling and the photos that are produced. My K10 does have it's little problems now so time to get something a bit more reliable.
