I have the K5IIs.............

Pro's:

IQ, especially in RAW files, great Dynamic range, battery life excellent, Can focus on a black hole in a dark universe.......so good in low light.

Great ergonomics.

I am using the Metz 58 flash at the moment and looks great so far............no issues with bounce or diffused light

Cons:

Write speed is generally slow even with a fast card, almost as if it needs to warm up(I shoot mainly RAW), then after a while it's writing instantly (bizarre?) ....maybe I need to look at firmware updates....

Research your lens AF speeds. 18-135 is noted as being quick, but the 50-135 is a bit of a slouch, but my Sigma's seem quick enough. (17-50 f2.8 is an absolute peach!!)
