Any speculation on how long...

before we see a Magic Lantern book for the K5? I'm not knocking the manufacturer's manual, but I find the ML books far easier to read and comprehend.

Well, mine was more of an educated guess based on how long it took for the K-7 and K20D books to come out after the camera release. Plus, they both came out on a Tuesday, so that narrowed it down a bit too

I don't normally buy stuff like this but the K5 is a notch up in complexity from my K10D so I'd probably buy a copy - as long as it comes out in the next few months ...

February 31, 2011 ... correction, February 32 (for those who need my silliness to be more obvious).

I'll order one the moment it appears, based on their guides to the K10D and K-7.

The Pentax sales volume must be right on the edge of breakeven, though, as shown by the lack of a guide to the popular K-X.

I see that Yvon Bouque has a downloadable guide for the K-X (with K-5 and K-r) under way but I'm one of those looking for a paper manual I can through into my bag. Yvon's works well on the Nook, a device I'm not ready to purchase and one that will not replace a paper manual that can become unsupported or flakey, abused, wet, lost, etc. without much damage to the budget.

I've found Magic Lantern guides to be very good for a deeper understanding of what the camera can do, even for an experienced photographer.

The K-5 has many new features, even compared to the K-7.
I'll probably get one when its published, but as usual the one for Pentax gear comes out rather late
