With the K-5's high ISO performance, it's a good chance to try out some ISO6400 for a start and get blown away from the get-go

Happy waiting!

Now that's a glass half-full answer!
Agreed. And the K-5 does some great long exposure stuff too.

That will give you time to charge the battery.

Congratulations on the new camera!

I don't pity anyone buying a K5 so I'll just say Welcome to the club!

You go about your business....relax and dream of the sweetness of the K5 to arrive shortly. Otis has agreed to do the waiting for you, so you can ease your mind and plan of the K5 adventures to come......
Damn that Otis is a thoughtful little guy! He did ask if you might send him a little tip for his concern...nothing big...something like 50 lbs of Exotic Gourmet nuts....

You wait right there Otis!

Several of the last orders I have made for things which were to be delivered via UPS also indicated a delivery date that was AFTER what I had been promised. Each time, UPS showed up when they were supposed to, not when their site said they would. Here's hoping that will happen (or already has happened) for you!

CE....can you advise Otis the minute you receive that K5? He woke me up twice last night, still out there on the fence waiting. I had to bring him a snack of hot roasted peanuts and a cold beer.
This is not working out for me.....

Regards!
