Page 126 in the k-5 manual explains how to do it on the camera.

This article describes some of the details on how to go about testing and adjusting.
Fixing Front and Back Focus - Introduction -

And please be aware that AF Fine Tuning is not magic, unless you do multiple precisely controlled tests with the camera exactly in line with the target in both horizontal and vertical directions you are just as likely to make things worse than better. It is very easy for the margin of error in the testing to be greater than the AF error was to begin with.

I believe the k-5 can hold adjustment settings for 20 lenses but those lenses have to be modern enough to have ID chips that the camera can identify.
