As i understand that the K5ii is using the current K5 Prime II image processor whereas the K30 is using the newer Prime M image processor, i'm hoping someone could help compare the differences between them, especially in high ISO shot..

Or would a high ISO comparison shot between the current K5 and K30 be exactly what i am looking for?

I just talked to some one at Adorama this morning. Looks like they got the k5II 18-135mm kits in, but they can't ship my order due to the Hurricane. Looks like Mother Nature herself doesn't want me to get this thing All kidding aside, I'm glad that they finally got it in and I hope to receive it before the end of the week. bgh

Either Mother Nature is giving me a sign, or just playing a joke on me. As I mentioned before, this will be my first Pentax and every single day I hear of a slight delay, is a day in which I slightly rethink my choice, then I read more comments on the new and better auto focus and still the above par IQ, and I wish I had it with me already. I'm dying here.

What is crazy about this is that I was about to cancel my order with Adorama and order from B&H because Adorama had no clue when they would get them in. I called B&H this morning and they were closed and their website said out of stock. The B&H site also no longer had the arrival date of 10/29. I then checked Adorama site and they actually showed it in stock! I hadn't received and shipping email, so I called and they informed me that they were in the process of completing my order and it should ship with in 48 hours do to the Hurricane.

I just want my PayPal account to get charged. This is the first time in a long time that I'm eager to see my funds go down.

Mine still says "Pending". When did You order? I ordered the K5II + 18-135 WR

Edit: I just saw on a recent post that You ordered on the 10th. I did on the 4th... what's up with Adorama?

Yes, the K-5II uses the PRIME II processor. I actually contacted Pentax because the box where the camera comes in says PRIME M on the side. Pentax USA was not aware of this, they checked some boxes they had in their place and realized the mistake.

Finally, mine is on its way. It seems that Paypal wouldn't complete the transaction because the pending payment was too old.
