Difference between K-5 II units sold in Japan vs. America

It's time to upgrade from my K-7 to a K-5 II. I'm seeing that most of them on offer at ebay are coming from Japan.

Is there any difference between a K-5 II sold in Japan vs. one sold in America? Is it just a matter of what language the menu is set to, or are there any other differences?


Thanks,

Greg

I think those only have a different localization setting (=language). Might I suggest the K-3 or at least the K-5IIs instead?

I don't think there's any difference in the camera itself. Lately all languages have been available in every region.
