Interesting I have a USB3 reader also however I find that cards read and write at differing speeds dependent upon reader/card combo. I will test my cards in camera using the USB3 interface as it's likely more representative of read/write rates in camera.

For me, it's the placement of the AF button. I'm too old to go back-n-forth so, the '5 has to go.
Ok, you only asked for the first, but here are the first 3:
  1. Fast focus lock
  2. Louder shutter than the wonderfully low K5 shutter noise
  3. Can't find stuff on the new button/menu system

My 5 is gone as well, but at some point a K5II might take its place as the DR and noise performance of the 16mp sensor is hard to let go....

It was the build quality and the way my hand feels on the grip. Much better than a canon.
