Dale - only been using Pentax for 50 years :-)
When I finally decided to slowly transition to digital from my sweet LX,
I I got a little p&S Canon that had the flip screen.. then went to a
Powershot pro-1 (while still doing a lot of film photography) I took it
on a long cross country trip in 2005. Loved it foreverything .. stealth
ground level shooting teeny tiny plants ...etc..
It will be difficult enough for me to put together the funds for the
body anytime soon... I too have a golden oldy prime 50mm smc but it is a
mess and I use it as loupe . Still use a 28 mm occasionally, but the
DA18-55 will have to do me for quite a while.

It has me at the fold out screen.... all the other stuff is nice too, but that
fold out screen is something I truly need in my studio for product shooting

Yesterday I had to photograph a couple of horizontal boards in an electronic
instrument. This is a big beast and it was a lot easier to hold the K-70 above
the workbench and look at the screen than to maneuver the instrument so the
boards would be vertical and facing forwards.
I have also used the screen in the field when shooting something in the
distance with the camera held just above ground level, looking underneath some
