I will order one. I have been waiting for over a year to get back into a pentax after selling my gear for the high iso crack of the D90. It really is a wonderful camera, but I miss weather resistance and in body SR. With the announcement of the K5 (even with the D7000) coming out, I am excited to be selling off my Nikon stuff to grab a K5! I have jumped around between systems for the last few years, but hope to settle in with the K5 and Pentax. I feel like I finally have a good idea of my photographic preferences, preferred subjects and shooting style. Anyways, I am not going to pre-order, but will order as soon as I get the rest of my Nikon stuff sold.

I have one in my cart on Amazon.com. I plan to check the pricing there and pull the trigger when the price is right.

If you preorder an item at Amazon, they give you the lowest preorder price the item drops to before it ships, guaranteed. See below:

More than 60 people have pre-ordered and put a deposit for the K-5 in Singapore even before the price has been confirmed, which looks like a record as far as I know. Even the K-7 didn't generate that many pre-orders then...
