When I saw this post was not sure if it was a question I had asked and had forgot I asked (drinking too much beer and posting on forums LOL). I had this exact same question, Canon T3i, D60, 7D, Sony A65, A77 and K5. I read and read everything I could find. On paper the Sony specs were impressive. The reviews left a little to be desired. Once I found the K5 and read about it I knew I found my camera. Nikons, I just did not care for how they look. With Nikon and Canon having 90% of the market I thought if you are going to compete you need to do it better so I looked at the others. The K5 won out, and I like Canon products, the 60d was what I kept going back to. Monday my K5 shows up hopefully it lives up to expectations.

Congratulations on your decision to go with the Pentax System! As long as you use the many superb Pentax DA*/FA or Limited optics, you can't go wrong with the K-5! An awesome camera, with many class-leading features, not to mention superb build quality and ergonomics!
