K-5 Reviews with example images?

Does anyone know if there is or are a review(s) out there yet with actual samples of images taken with the new K-5? Stats alone mean very little to me as well as "unboxing" videos.

If you know of any, post them here!

I can work on getting some for you, but I would officially not get too excited until the body becomes available in October.

Adam, this would be awesome. Especially shots at iso 80 vs iso 100 and high iso shots (iso 3200 and above).

That's just it, I am not the least bit excited at the moment and wont be until I see some examples and real world, hands-on reviewing. Seems other makers have hands on reviews out already and makes me wonder if anyone has really handled the cameras yet in real-world situations.

I've been posting all sorts of such comments in several threads, and I totally agree with you:

Until we see some REAL users' tests, and especially for the ISO performance, I will try not getting too excited.
However, some videos posted by JohnB appear to give the K5 top votes for, at least, the LV-AF.
Let's hope the trend will continue and we get more good surprises.

Adam:

I believe this would be a little early to post some pics taken with a "preview" K5.
I am sure they are still working on some last minute details before the actual sales.
Wouldn't you think that posting "almost-ready-K5" shots would start another round of negativity?

Just my thoughts.

It hasn't been released yet. Still beta firmware. You'll need to be patient to really know what you'll be getting once it ships.

Otherwise Pentax has published a series of photos on their site, resized and all that comes with that, which someone re-posted in the main k-5 announcement thread.

The old "RAW" button has been updated to be able to be reprogrammed as a "function" button. That's all.
