Currently I use two Pentax Kx cameras. Maybe it is a whim, but I have been thinking of going for a K70 with the 18 - 135 mm lens. I am thinking the 24 Mp sensor will give me more resolution in my landscapes and thus a better quality in my photos. I am retired and on a fixed income and would sell one of my Kx cameras with its kit lens and maybe my 35-80 lens. Just wondering if there are any Pentaxians here that will give me an honest and objective opinion about stepping up from the Kx to the K70. TIA

...the K-70 is ranked 5th for landscape photography out of all the Pentax cameras...1. K-645z,
2. K-645D, 3. K-1 II, 4. K-1, 5. K-70...so yes...on a fixed income the K-70 would be a good choice for landscape in the Pentax line...and the Pentax 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 ED AL DC SMC DA WR is the lens to use...

There really is no contest between the KX and the K70. 7 years separate these two cameras, The K70 has a bigger screen, twice as many pixels, and is weather sealed. You worked all your life, now your retired, enjoy the K70.

Those were my thoughts also, just have to convince the better half.
