Should I buy K-5 or buy more glass? I just got a new K-r for next to nothing.... but a K-5 would get me more MPs and better sensor.... Or do i just add to my collection of glass?

If you just got a K-r I'd stick to that and use it until the K-5 successor comes out. With that said, the K-5 is a much better camera no matter how you look at it

yeah... i had the k-x for about 2years.. then i got the k-r cause it was such a good deal.. sold the k-x recently and i figured I would be good.. but these seem to be pretty good prices.. i know I won't be able to afford the initial cost of around $1499 or anything in that area... hmmm something to think about...

So much for the earlier "at the end of the month, the price of the K-5 will go up by $300 and stay at $1299 until it's discontinued."...

Actually, you do, $75 worth! (of complaining). Pentax K-5 Body Digital SLR Camera K5 DSLR - FixShippingFee- - TopBuy.com.au

You also could have got it from Teds for $999 + 9.95 shipping with Australian CR Kennedy backed warranty.

Amazon now at $897.21 - now I am wondering how low it will go.

I told myself I just might pull the trigger if it broke the $900 barrier, but now not so sure as I am still searching for my ultimate long lens.......
