PENTAX K-5 easy to spot in a crowd of K-7s (K-5 photo)

As some users already have noticed the PENTAX K-5 appears to have four rows of knurls on the mode selector vs. the K-7's three! Reminds me of the subtle difference between the K10D and K20D - the color of the shutter button!

Plus the front, and maybe back, e-dials have different look to them - spot them a kilometre away!

That 4th row really does add a certain steamy je ne sais quois!

But is there really such a thing as "a crowd of K-7s"?

It's possible, but they would be spotted at high noon.

I kid, I kid...
A poor attempt at a little sensor humor

What a find!

... just being sarcastic.

Which shows that it should be the same size as the K7 and that the grip will be useable on the K5 ??

The type and degree of upgrades with this camera reminds me of how K10D became K20D.

Hey, no one pointed this out but you can't see the flash cutout line on the K-5 photo, while on a K-7 you can see it in the prism housing... for example, right above the "Pentax" Logo!

That's obviously because it's full frame.
