You should get into manual focussing. It will make you a better photographer and the K5 has Capture In Focus and Focus cofirmed/lock to help you manually focus. the K-30 also has focus peaking which I don't think the K-5 has although you don't need it.

I only started 3 months ago and I only ever use manual focus.


Can you elaborate about how manual focussing makes one a better photographer?  All it made me do was wish for high quality autofocus at he end of a long day.  It is required for some types of photography I admit but I don't see it in this case.
