Of course it's an upgraded K7 ! Most new models of all brands are just that - upgrades.

However new much faster AF and new very high ISO plus a few other nice extras mean this is much improved K7 and will be replacing mine ASAFP (as soon as finances permit).
1599 is still too much in my opinion. Pentax camera bodies dont hold their value very well. If the K5's street price is higher than 1299, I dont see the future of it. I agree that K5 is a great camera according to all the news and sample pics I have been seeing so far. However, 1599? You got be kidding.

The one shop I checked in The Netherlands has 1199 euro for the K-5 body and 1189 euro for the D7000 body.
same store now also lists K-5 + 18-135 for € 1849,00.
That would mean + € 650, 00 for the lens. I must admit that si a bit more than I expected , based on lens only price and the price some others offer for body + lens as opposed to body only (for instance Tekade.de, € 1449,00 body only and € 1949,00 for body + kit). With such a low body price, one could probably not seriously expect the same low lens price but I did suspect a body+lens for about 1749,00-1799,00
In Finland K-5 body only for 1149€ and K-5 + 18-135 kit for 1449€. It was not hard choice to order the camera together with the lens.

I have it on preorder, so when I called to check the status, he said that they should have got them by now. Who knows, it's probably just a line they give everyone... But here's hoping!
