Does anyone have a K-5 in the detroit area

Hello everyone,

Ok, it's been suggested to give Pentax another chance by going from a K20d to a K-5. Before I do this I would like to take a look at a k-5 (physically handle one and test it out). Since no store really sells pentax k-5s in my area I'm looking to see if anyone in my area ownes a k-5? If so, I want to see if we can meet up (maybe at a coffee house) so I might be able to do a short test run on the K-5 before I decide to buy one or move to a Nikon d7000. If so send me a PM.

Thanks everyone for responding. I was able to meet up with a Pentax K-5 user who works 2 miles from where I work. Thanks again Dave for meeting up with me and letting me test out the K-5. I am going to compare images to the Nikon d7000 this evening and will make my decision from there.

I was still supprised as to how slow the Pentax da*50-135 lens was to start working. Maybe there is something wrong with the motor. Now I have to test how sharp the pictures are.
