I also moved up from K20D to K-5 and after two stained copies got a good one, love it. This photo is from inside an art gallery in pretty low light f5,6 1/20s ISO 6400 PP in LR3, hand held no flash.

I'm surprised they let you into a gallery with a camera. Absolutely forbidden in most big ones I have been to.

You are right; however, this one is the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart (Tasmania, Australia) and photography is permitted. The only restriction is no flash. With a K-5 who need flash

Another shot ISO12800, f5.6 1/30s.

The gallery/museum MONA is a new venture and combines the full range of ancient, traditional and out right shocking exhibits. Some of which would see me banned from the forum if I posted images. Web site is here Museum of Old and New Art

The only thing I have found on the K5 that is not as good as the K20D is the SD card port, I have never once snapped the door shut on the K20D, I always closed it and then turned the key. ( something has to wear out some time if you keep snapping it to). But on the K5 you have to Snap it shut. also I find it very difficult to get my fingers round the card to pull it out.
Love it though, but I am also thinking of keeping the Good Old K20D.

Russ, don't let me down, steer clear of the manual. Real men never read manuals or look at maps. You know that....don't cave in now!

I did have a guy that worked for me a while back and had never been to Texas. He was coming from Georgia on I-10 and was headed to Ft Worth...he didn't believe in maps either. Ended up in Ft Stockton, then Big Bend.....said it was a nice trip, but a little long and coming from Big Bend to Ft Worth was sort of rough with his wife telling him he was an idiot down all those long stretches of highway out there in west Texas...... Still, he's a man in my book!
Best Regards!

That is a brilliant result David.

Keeping second body

Sure!
Im going to purchase my K-5 next month and I intend to keep my K20D for ever... I had capturing images from a brazilian woman politic for 3 months, last year, day-by-day, and must to say that K20D did an excellent job!! I had learned how to use flash more than 1/180 and how to calibrate camera to optimize images... Well, I can say that my K20D even limited in fps or undesirable grains over iso 800, beyond no so fast focus, it could take 41.000 pictures with any problem in the camera.
I hope to get little bit upgrade with K-5, of course, but my K20D got a kind of historical mark in my job life
