My plan was to wait for the K20 replacement before upgrading my
K100. Last spring, when it became apparent that one wouldn't be out
for quite a while, and meanwhile K20 prices plummetted, I caved in and
got the K20. It addressed almost all of the shortcomings of the K100. 

As long as I'm not shooting autoexposure, p-ttl flash, or autofocusing
action shots, the K20 works just fine for me. From what I've heard,
the K-7 is better for both metering and autofocus than the K20.
I'm not quite sure how much better, and until I get steady income
again, I'm probably better off not knowing.
