Shutter Cable Release for K-5?

I'm about to purchase a K5iis and am wondering if there is cable release available.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.

There's some info on release cables here:

You can also use the remote control F, which lets you shoot instantly or with mirror lock up. The K-5 has an IR sensor on both the front and the back.

Look on eBay or dealextreme. I purchased a Yongnuo wired trigger (with locking function) for 1,2$, and a wireless remote is in the mail, all of 1$...
