If your camera is meeting your needs, no matter what it is, you should 
feel no pressure to upgrade.  However, anybody with a Pentax body older 
than a K-5, with the ability to upgrade, should at least consider 
borrowing one for a short while to see if the improved performance might 
help them in unexpected ways.

I think that the button layout on the K-1 is the best yet.  I rarely 
find myself hitting the wrong button by mistake.  I've got a couple of 
pages of gripes about the design of the software UI, but the button 
layout is very nice.

I went to the K20 from the K100, and there wasn't a lot about the 20 
sensor that I liked better than the K100 sensor. I did quite like the 
ergonomics and feel of it. For studio work it was a very nice body. 
Although, once I got the K-x, which had the worst feel in my hands of 
any of my Pentax DSLRs, I pretty much stopped using the K20 for anything 
but studio work because the K-x sensor was so much better in anything 
but the best light.
