Is there any reason that I shouldn't buy a K-5?

I still use my K10, but since buying a k-5, the difference in AF speed is significant over the K10, and the higher ISO capability is fantastic.
I didn't want to use my k10 above 400, 800 at a push.
With the K-5, I have no worries about using 3200, but I usually set it with a limit of 6400 if need be.

For what I needed AF for, birds, and cycling events, and such like, my K10 performed well. Admittedly I don't have the fastest lenses.
The k-5 has notably improved AF, which is good enough for my needs.

Viewfinder is nice and bright, but the rear LCD is great.
All the info and more at a glance.

I still prefer the overall shape of the k10.
And the memory card door isn't the greatest as the memory card needs a bit of persuasion to get out.
The K-5 is a fine camera though.
