Awesome photos - I am contemplating getting a K% from Emmy photo as well. Quick question - what was your manufacture date or serial number run? Curious if they are selling newer stock. Happy photo shooting!

Finally ,I am now waiting for mine K5 (used but with still ~ 2.5 years AU warranty left with Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5 - great lens but I already have two of them!) to arrive.
then all dilemmas, what to keep and what to sell, most likely will keep K5 + Q and sell KX+K7+Canon SX20 but it might change

It just came in today - already tried it out. Everything feels solid, though the digital level seems a bit off - and I tried it on a very level service. Excited to go out and shoot.

Not-so-very-patiently waiting for the postman to bring mine. I've bought a low-mileage used model from a reputable dealer over here in the UK. The postie should also be bringing a 16-45 bought privately, so I will have something to play with and learn the secret arts of the K-5. Then I plan to explore the mythical powers of the Limited Primes. Should be fun!

I just received the 70mm limited and also just got the 16-45. It's only been a few hours, but there is something about the K5 that really feels good in the hands. It hasn't even been a full day - but I am enjoying!

Juuuuust put in my order for a new K-5 a couple of hours ago. (Is it here yet?? ;-) ) Looking forward to using my new toy for many years to come. I think it's the right fit for my wants/interests/style.

Woo-hoo!
