No more camera buying addiction!

And, with the low noise, high ISO range I no longer feel the need to add to my lens collection.

Do you find yourself lusting after fewer lens as a K-5 owner too?
No. You're just weird you are! The K-5 just made me want to give it new and varied glass experience... its currently having a Russian phase.

My LBA has just begun with the K-5...
This body deserves better lenses than Pentax can produce, (especially with the prices they are at now)
Now I'm lusting after Zeiss and Voigtlander!
Now that you mention it, Pentax prices just hit the Zeiss range.

Never happen. I've finally got a K5, now I want the silver one. And the FA * 200 macro, after those I'll be cured.

Well, I feel the same as the OP, albeit with more lenses rattling around in my cupboard. Since I bought my K5, my LBA is in remission and I have been seriously thinking of a partial sell-off. We'll see if it happens, or what comes next!

Way back in the stone age when i bought my Super Program with the 50mm/1.4 I liked it a lot. But every time i went to the PX (In Korea) they had all these great sexy looking lenses on the shelf. I think after 1 or 2 paychecks I could not resist the SMC-A 70-210mm/4.0 anymore and went down and plucked down my cash. It turned out to be a super fun lens to explore Korea with. Then another couple paychecks later the SMC-A 28mm/2.8 started to whisper in my ear and I had to snatch one up and it proved to be another great lens to have. That satisfied me for a long time but there was always a nagging in the back of my head to get a SMC-A 35-70 as a compliment to the 70-210mm but with the 28 and 50 I was pretty happy with what I had. I think I finally caved in about a decade later when I saw the SMC-A 35-70 and the SMC-A 24-50 "Pretty Cheap" in the back of some Photo Magazine and decided to snap them up. Now I'm thinking COOL BEANS because I can use them all on my K5 and not have to worry about the AF system taking a dump on me when it can't decide what it wants to do.
