just got mine

just upgraded from a K10 to K5 yesterday

so far it i like it a lot not had chance to put it through its paces yet and get out taking shots proper

the menu system is great a much better layout

the only quality niggle i can see so far is the top LCD seems like its skewed by a tiny amount, its not sat quite parallel to the window not serious but irritating given the cost of purchase i spose it could be normal anyone else noticed this?

Mine seems to be lined up just fine with the window. I noticed it doesn't quite illuminate evenly though - there is a darker patch towards the botton right hand side, where the number of shots remaining on the memory card is normally displayed. A little odd since the rest of the panel seems to illuminate almost perfectly evenly, but it doesn't really bother me.

Itseläni on hyvät silmälasit eivät vääristä mitään. Ja K-5 on täydellinen.
