Ordered K5

Well, I ordered my K5 from B/H Photo tonight. Should be here on 9-1. Can't wait to get it. How different is this camera from the K7 in terms of color rendition? My main reason for selling the K7 is I wanted improved dynamic range, and lower noise at 1600 iso. I was getting so tired of blown out highlights, and black shadows. I'm really hoping this is greatly improved. Aside from the iso, and dynamic range, what are the other improvements that really make a difference?

Congrats and welcome to the club! As to which is better, I definitely prefer the k5 over the K7 but that may just be because I Have one (and sold my K7).. I'll let you judge for yourself. .

Collection: By Camera

They are both nice cameras but the K5 allows me to do things I just couldn't with the K7. I'm sure there are workarounds for every situation but one thing I note since I bought the K5, My Pentax AF540 and Metz 58 are collecting dust.
