DPreview compare between K-5 and K-5II

So based on the Dpreview comparison between the K-5 and the K-5II the only difference I can seem to find is the addition of a focus assist lamp (which apparently weighs 20g) and allows the camera to focus one -EV down from before...

Is this primarily a software update?

(fyi I'm currently a longtime user of a k20d and have been considering a k-5 update for a while... now I'm debating what the K-5II has that the K-5 does not and its looking pretty thin for the extra $500)
