Waiting could mean getting something with improved AF, larger sensor size, more bells and whistles but it would also cost a lot more than the current K5 price and I'd have to wait until all the early buyers enabled Pentax to sort out the inevitable bugs in a new product.

On the other hand, the K5 is a whole lot of camera for under a grand.

Curious to hear some opinions.

I think you are already there, decision wise. I upgraded earlier this year for the same reasons. The bugs have been worked out in the later K5's (at least mine) and the prices had dropped and have now dropped some more. Its an awesome camera that for me anyway will most likely be my last DSLR for a very long time.
