I am new to this forum and hope you are accepting the girls.
About the K-5, got mine in June 2011 and fell in love with the camera the moment I took it in my hands! It took me some time to really learn all the settings, so I don't have to think where is the one that I need. But now, I am absolutely enjoying using it. If only I would have more time for that!

Welcome to Pentax Forums! Yes, the K-5 is a wonderful camera. Like you, I find that it is a joy to use. We hope you can find time to post some of your images.

I just did six hours of action shots with my K-5, and the battery life is awesome! I had three batteries with me, two in the camera & one spare. I took approximately 1,100 shots and one short video, and when I was done doing that I was only about 1/2 to 3/5 of the way down on just the primary battery! Then I went home and did about 3.5 hours of on-camera viewing and deleting of images before the battery finally started to indicate it was drained. Fantastic!!!!!
