New to Pentax

I just picked up the K5 after amazon dropped the price to just over $1000-. So it only made sense to register here and learn from all the pentax pros out there. I've been using a smaller system- Lumix LX3, which is an amazing platform, but I'm eager to take photography to the next level. As I looked at MFTs cameras to upgrade, it made more sense to go with the K5, which by everything I've deduced thus far, will be perfect for my needs. So thank you in advance for you insights and expertise.
