Same here. But I do quite a bit of PP to achieve final look I am looking for.

I would agree with your thoughts .... although I have a K5, and know it to be a beautifully built thing, with semi-pro features etc ... I am still wedded to the way I used to take photos in my youth, with the brick-like Konica A Autoreflex, Zenith E et al .... So I rarely, if ever, use those multitude of features such as bracketing, motor drive, mirror lock-up etc. Simpler I find is better. Timing and exposure accuracy is all, and I try and get that right ... afterwards, a bit of minimal PP.

The prospect of a K5 sans AA filter is exciting I have to admit, but prices will fall, and lenses are what I prefer to concentrate on for any future purchases.
