I upgraded from the K10D to K5D, and it's a world of difference. I don't use a battery grip, I like the small size and use a Lens Loop strap so it hangs at my hip.
I will think about a K-3s, though.
It's here!! And after literally 20 mins of walking around and taking a few shots I'm freaking hooked!! Compared to the K10D the K-5 IIs is razor sharp. And it still works well at high ISO! The second shot I took was at ISO 16000 and it looks pretty sharp using the rear LCD with little noise.

Now I just have to figure out how to work this marvel. Also, I think I need the battery grip. After having it for so long on the K10D it just doesn't feel right without it.

I'm sure there are many pics to come from this happy new owner!!

congrats mate. I don't have the IIs, only the K5, but take it from me, you'll probably still love the K10. it's a beauty in its own way.
