remote control for K-5?

I didn't see an earlier thread on this.

For my K-20, soon to be sold in the Marketplace, I have both the Pentax remote control and a Chinese version with more options. Will either of these work with the K-5 that I just ordered? Or will I need new ones?

Have people played around yet with releasing the shutter of the K-5 via infrared (or radio) remotes?

No change to the IR remote commands, so if it worked with the K20D you'll be fine. Mind you I love the press once to start a bulb exposure and press once to stop option with the K-5.

All wired and wireless remotes that worked on your K20D will also work on the K-5.
