Welcome! I picked my K-5 before all the reviews were in - I notice now that dpreview gives a silver and 75% to the a580, and a gold and 83% to the K-5. When I bought mine I just knew that it had all of the features I was after, fit my hand perfectly, and could use a bunch of easily available older lenses.
Good luck with your choice.
