I recommend either the K-30 or K-5 II. The K-30 is better than the K-x at everything and has focus peaking. I don't trust the orginal K-5, too many user complaints of poor AF in low light and/or coloured light. I owned one for a short time, and it front focussed in tungsten light but was fine in daylight.

I swapped it out for a K-7 atm, which I may keep. Or possibly sell and get a K30.

This is concerning... As I shoot mostly in low/colored light at concerts/small venues where its dark and strangely lit. Although the reviews on Adorama seem to extremely positive and I only saw two complainers out of 50 on the k-5. Sadly the K-5 II/s is out of my price range but it is nice to dream...
