Hmm, I found that having the top LCD and the low shutter noise is really good for "stealthy" pictures.
The low light AF is a con though. I went on a night beach walk, and my K-5 was really hunting to focus. Needed a torch in the end. However, a friend's Canon 60D had no issues there.

I, too, was surprised at ow much quieter the K-5 is in comparison to the K-7.

Re your low light AF problem, did you have the AF Assist light feature turned on?
