Thanks for the kind words, guys, but you scare me - Now I'll be afraid to post anything that might not come up to your high standards!

No 8 is my favourite, although they are all nice shots.

With your favored kind of photography (based on much of your posting), you have done quite well, and I am not sure you should feel pressed to upgrade from the excellent K20 (I certainly don't intend to abandon mine completely), unless you anticipate some changes in your emphasis. I and others have always said it is more the photographer than the equipment. There may be an exception, however, in some of the photography I do -- essentially opportunistic grab shots of fleeting moments with subjects that don't always allow for much preplanning, if any -- almost p&s type snapshooting, where an upgraded camera can make a difference (improved focus speed, tracking, expanded DR, exposure accuracy, burst rate, noise suppression, high ISO, and maybe even movie clips, etc). The K20 is so good that I waited to see how others with the K7 did with that kind of photography before taking the plunge, so there was a perceived advantage for me and not a matter of "keeping up with the Joneses." DSLRs are so good now that most are perfectly adequate for general photography and have been for some time. Most of us , I hope, understand this, even if my good wife doesn't - "How many cameras does oneperson need?"
