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.
