Mine is packed up and ready to be returned over this wknd. as well....I have the K-7 and that is nothing short of an absolute joy to use, the K-5 with it's inability to focus under low tungsten light and inconsistant flash expsoure is not. As I have the K-7, it's an easy decision....I can't wait for Pentax to deal with this, as it is an amzing camera otherwise (with miraculous high iso and DR).
