I've just moved from a K-7 to an OM-D; see my post on the pentax forum.

The OM-D isn't a better camera than the K-5, it's just different. If size matters, get the OM-D, if ISO matters, get the K-5. Depends what sort of thing you'll photograph also - there are no fast zooms in M43, but does that matter to you?

I wanted a low light champion and bought the K5 with some limited lenses.

The theory was good but it did not work out as the AF of the K5 is very unreliable in low light conditions. I am getting substantial better results with Olympus EM5 in low light.
The micro 4/3 primes are amazing.
