Differences between K-5, K-5 11, K-5 11 s ?

I have a K-5. Love it. great camera.

The K-5 11 and 11s have been introduced. I know that the 11s does not have an anti aliasing filter (I think that's what it is) and from what I understand that means the 's' is capable of more resolution and something about 'moire'.

Not sure what other differences there are between the K-5 and 11 and 11s.

I'd appreciate an easy to understand explanation of the differences.

Thanks in advance.

1 Improved auto focus
2 Improved screen on back

I think that sums it up.

There is supposed to be slight image quality improvement and better focus performance in with f2.8 lenses. Improved auto focus with speed, less hunting, and lower light performance(Down to -3EV) The screen is easier to see in sunlight and more durable.
