Honest question, I am not trying to troll. I've never shot Pentax, though a good friend is very happy with them. I've just got a lot of money wrapped up in m43, an OM-D order, and I'm starting to wonder if maybe I've gone crazy. By the spec sheets, they seem like awfully similar cameras with the hard numbers tipped in favor of the K-5.

Is it just down to (good) live view and size?

K5 is the better IMO, but seeing as most people seem to change cameras every five minutes might as well get one of the retro cams now, and flog it before it becomes cringe worthy.

You'll always be able to buy a k5 equivelant, but there is only this year an possibly next to satisfy your retro craving before it becomes passe. Fill your boots while you can.
