Thanks everyone - I've done some more research thanks to this thread and decided to go with a new K2S. Sometimes the more economical option it's always the best.

Seems like the K2s does pretty much everything I want (low light focus, no AA, tilt screen, weather-sealed) all in a small package. I'm also considering an used inexpensive K10d / k200d if I can find one in minty shape. I loved the images on my old D70 ccd.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Update - Ordered a K2s and now while waiting for it to arrive I found a mint k5iis for a great deal.....

Mainly, I'm wondering how the auto-focus compares between these two bodies? Judging by specs I'm guessing AF will function relatively the same?

How about picture quality?

I know the K5iis is built like tank, but I prefer the smaller size of K2s - any reason to choose the K5iis over a the new K2s other then to save a few bucks?
