    upgrading camera ?

    Ok I am not too good at saving the dosh.....but I am continually frustrated with the KM. Would a used k20 be a reasonable upgrade? without spending too much moolah?
    cheers

    Did you get the K5 or K20? If the K5 - are you finding it much of an upgrade???

    Ok I did a job yesterday ( realestate not a wedding! lol ) and I gotta say the camera performed beautifully! Images clear and sharp, colour exceptional ( Tamron 10-24 ) only problems were caused by the driver.......I had issues remembering which knob to twirl and my hand instinctively went to where the knob would have been on the KM........and managed to muck a couple up before I noticed.......
    Really like the option to shoot off 5 images when bracketing......thats awesome! Shot at 400 iso with no noise that I can see ( not that I expected any at that iso ).............my brain is swimming

    cheers
