Or just bracket. One push of the button, done.
Yes, and I bracket on top of spot metering to correct for lens aperture error, it's even better, the exposure is right straight out of the camera. Also, I carry a Cokin P series ND grad filters kit which helps to relax the constraint of dynamic range of sunsets. Having to install gradual ND filters is cumbersome but they are relatively cheap for the benefit they bring. For the best results, one could use the ISO80 of the K-5 and a 2 stops or 3 stops ND grad filter. ( http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/387434-REG/Cokin_CH250_Graduated_Neutr...ty_Filter.html ) . $57 is way cheaper than a FF camera...for gaining up to 3 stops of DR.

I was under the impression that extended ISO 80 provided maximum image quality, but there was something unnatural about the images, especially the highlights.
If you're shooting JPEG and already using D-range extension in conjunction with ISO 80 then there are going to be things that are bound to look off, especially if you have highlight correction turned on.

I think just about all the regular posters on PF shoot RAW (.DNG) - and for good reason.

Can't be using ISO80 with high light correction ON, it's going to be ISO160.

The fact that I only barely remembered that tells you how much I use that feature...

I don't have a single image to give an example of what I say by 'compressed highlight look', and even if I did at web display size it will not be objective enough..
You can link to full size images hosted elsewhere or you can post web sized jpegs + 100% crops of the highlight areas.
