Your k-mount lenses will work with the k5. Best to order through B&H from here (through the forum). It helps the forum out and you'll get free access to the marketplace. You'll need to look around for a k5 - it's out of production (I believe). But Pentax has a $100 rebate this month on all bodies, making the k5ii a nicely priced camera:

Welcome to the forum, yep lens should be good, one of the advantages of Pentax ownership.

Backwards lens compatibility, some restrictions maybe dependant on lens your using.

It depends. Right now, with the $100 rebate, I would say yes. I have a k5 and k5iis. The only difference between the ii and the iis is the iis doesn't have an AA filter - it can produce sharper images under certain circumstances. It can also cause unwanted moire in your shots. I love mine and have been very happy with the results.

I say yes. But only if the IIs is paired with quality lenses (specifically the Limited primes or DA* lenses or third party equivalents like the Tamron 70-200 or Sigma 70 macro, etc). Otherwise if you're just using kit lenses, then you may as well go with the II.
