Wheee!

Just got my K-5 (3984***)- it arrived 5 days early from Amazon/Adorama! Amazingly smaller than my K20D! My weekend is mapped out for me now.
The lightness is a godsend, as my left arm is currently in a sling due to torn rotator cuff surgery (ouch). Only a new motorcycle purchase has ever made me any more excited (and no, I didn't get the injury from a bike this time, lol).

Welcome to the club folks!

I can see the DA35 f2.8 on the K20d, what is the lens on the K5?

Looking forward to seeing your photos..

It looks like a DA70 Limited.

I also upgraded from the K20D to the K-5. It took just a few days to adjust to the smaller but much more compact and solid feeling K5. Although I loved the 20D, it now feels rather clunky, and the shutter sounds so loud! Enjoy your new camera - its a winner.
