Sample .pef downloads?

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on some K-5 .pef samples (no DNG thanks) ?
Any links you can provide would be appreciated.

I've searched with google and got absolutely no-where (the PF vbulletin search function isn't any help either)

I've been using Photomatix tone mapping on some old *istDS .pef files with extraordinarily pleasing results, but using .pef from my K-7 are just depressing me as they show up terrible noise in the darker areas even at 100 iso.

So, if I'm convinced that the K-5 is truly has the sensor everyone claims it has, then I'm ready to upgrade.

Guess google hasn't indexed this yet: Pentax K-5 Review - Professional Reviews

Scroll down to the raw samples area, there's a whole bunch there (and read the whole review while you're at it ).
