Or the K-5, or the K-5 II- yes! The IQ is significantly better

Just got word that this offer is *ending soon* (not on Monday) because this is the lowest price online.

They ran out of stock, normally they don't accept orders on stuff that's not in stock, so they're making it as pre-order to be able to accept orders You'll should have your camera before the end of the month though!

I agree, go for it! I've been pretty unhappy with my K-7 and just minutes ago "pre-ordered" the K-5 IIs. I looked at a ton of K-5 II/IIs samples online, including DPReview's multi-cam comparison, and am already excited about going out to shoot again (which I haven't been for awhile).

From Kx to K5IIs is a huge jump. I'm sure you'd love what you are getting from the new camera Congrats!
