K5: Testing RAW Continuous Shooting

One of the only issues I had with the K5 specs is the size of the RAW buffer during continuous shooting compared to the K5. I picked up a K5 this afternoon and in one quick test was only able to shoot 5-6 RAW files before the buffer filled up. This was done under less than ideal conditions indoors. I will continue testing but hopefully i can get better performance as I like to shoot RAW even for wildlife. I may end up keeping the K7 as a backup body as this is somewhat of a disappointment. Overall, the body is exactly the same as the K7 so neat that way. All that was required when taken out of the box was to put in the spare K7 battery, attach the straps and then setup the user menu. Piece of cake. A quick shot at ISO 25600 looked quite good, at least on camera LCD.
