Amidst all of the K-5 II and IIs excitement I decided to opt for the K-5...... Very pleased so far.

I'm a "bang for the buck" guy and just upgraded from a K-x to the K-5 about 6 months ago. Looking at the K-5 body prices today it is an absolute no-brainer. I think it is interesting that the original K-5 has been out 2 years and still has not been surpassed by another APS-C camera. If you look at Amazon's owner reviews it still gets 5 stars (overall). Not too many cameras with that kind of satisfaction level. (Heck the vaunted Nikon D800/E are both at only 4 stars (overall).

I think the K-5 is just a stunning achievement and, while I hope the ii/s models are more of the same, I personally would not get rid of my K-5 before it was proven.
