Why is this K-r's Menu in German? And why do some people have a K-5 while others don't even have a vendor with reliable information

Just un-boxed my K-5 and the first thing I did was stand by the road and shoot cars coming towards me. I used my sigma 70-200 set at 2.8 and shot on afc at wide open.

The cars were traveling at 60 miles an hour approx and all shots were in focus as the af tracked the cars. Only ones OOF were when they came too close and were beyond the MFD of the lens.

Also did some panning shots of cars going behind trees and bushes. The tracking di pretty well and picked the cars up each side of objects. Not so many keepers as the head on shots but good enough.

I did try raw and JPG and I would I think use JPG for this sort of shooting. You can rattle off more shots than you will probably need I was shooting a 1/1000 and it seemed pretty fast to me. Far better than the K-7 and K-X.

Impressed with the camera on first look. Will have to play with the menu settings and dial my lenses in to get the best out of it but on first look I think it's a keeper.
