Thanks, Robert! Guess I'd better start saving up my pennies for the K-5IIs plus grip! I might skip over the K-30/50 models and get a K-5II to go along with my K-x and K-01, so that way I'd have three different K-mount cameras for different purposes/sizes:

K-5II: WR for bad weather and also uses battery grip for heavier lenses
K-x: smaller, lighter size with good ergonomics and viewfinder
K-01: for video capture, and most compact outfit with DA limited primes

Yeah, that's the ticket!

I had a K-x and loved it. I upgraded from the 5 to the 5IIs and find it a significant improvement. I have a K-01 because I got it for $155 out-the-door and for an APS-C K-Mount camera with the same sensor as the K-5 that was too much of a steal to pass up. It serves as my backup for the K-5IIs. I have the Q and use it when I need small, and with the 06 at f2.8 and ~250 equivalent that is a very nice combination. But when I want to do some "serious" photography I pick-up the K-5IIs.
