K-5 versus K-3

I'm one of those K-5 owners waiting for the K-3 to drop in price in coming months before I possibly lash out. The current limited edition looks nice... but I really dont want or need the grip etc. (Or want to part with $1300 plus at this stage either). With the $A around 92c, this aspect is a definite consideration.

Can any owners of both cameras possibly give me a little brief feedback on the most noticeable improvements I could expect in the K-3? Perhaps even an image comparison. Most images I've seen have not been that helpful... or have been between K5II and K5IIs. Dpreview doesnt offer the K-5 with their review comparison setup. Am mostly a landscape, portrait, concert, figure shooter I guess... with aspirations to do a little more macro. Use my EPL-5 for travel.

Thanks, Denisio F.
