Donnie G: The K-5II is a nice incremental upgrade of a wonderful picture taking machine. As long as Pentax sticks to improving its current APS-C cameras and that marvelous 645D and they don't get suckered into wasting resources on doing a 35mm full frame model just to have it shot down by the big 2, like what's going to happen to Sony's A99/RX1, then they'll be alright. Stay the course Pentax. You're on the right track.
@garyknrd, I am not sure that you used latest (1.13) K-5 firmware.
very nice (the only is these trees are not birches :)
