I joined back in December after moving up from the K20D. A quantum leap, in my opinion (esp. regarding autofocus and exposure accuracy), and not a single second of regret. Plus, the price is definitely right. Now Friday must seem like an eternity!

Finally arrived! Now I have to wait 6 hours to find out if everything works...I knew I should have bought a second battery & charger.

We've all been there - it seems like a very long time. It is the time to read the manual while you wait....

Enjoy your K-5 - it is a very nice piece of kit...

Updated the firmware, changed some settings, not much else I can do right now. I'll give it a workout tomorrow

One thing I did check, the shutter count was at 0.
