I got into the K-5 when I couldn't play with my Panny GH2 'cos it was raining.  While I really did notice the increased size and weight, I was happy with almost everything else.  Pentax ergonomics was really something else, the green button was special, the control over the auto ISO ramp terrific, image quality excellent, great range of lenses (on paper).  Then after a couple of months, my zoom started to get dust inside, the Pentax WR 18-135, it's a WR... huh?  I bought the Pentax 540 top-of-the-line flash gun, it failed on the fourth shutter press...  whoa?  I bought the DA* 55 prime, it was soft in the corners... Argh!  I backed out of Pentax 'cos I lost all confidence that, when I bought something, it would just work.  Sad, really, I loved the kit when it did work.
