You could look for a K-30 - or if you want to look in the used market, a K-r or a K5. If you have events in the rain, definitely look for a K30 and 18-135 WR kit. That will pay for itself at your first rainy atheletic event.

Of course, if you're a pretty technical shooter, the K5 or K5II series would be tough to resist.

Welcome, the K-5 IIs is certainly a very competent piece of kit, it just depends if it meets your needs.
