Re: nice summary

I've read that the K5 has twice the buffer depth of the D7000 and does 20-25 raw images in a burst IIRC, so that's pretty good. Not sure about AF speed - seems like I get conflicting reports everywhere. Pretty much everyone seems to agree that the K5 is an improvement in pretty much every regard over previous Pentax cameras though.

Anyway, I went ahead and ordered a K-5 today. I'm willing to overlook the movie limitatons and possible focus issues on account of the great image quality and ergonomics and rugged build. And I got it $600 cheaper than a 7D.
