Re: Anyone buying a K-5 IIs tomorrow?

I've had the K-5 IIs on order at B&H since Photokina.

I haven't had a Pentax since the K10D several years ago. It never focused properly with any of my lenses, so I sold it.

I've been wanting to downsize from my Nikon D300 for awhile. It's a nice camera, but the body and lenses are are heavy and cumbersome, and my body isn't willing to put up with it anymore.

I've always preferred the handling of Pentax cameras, so I decided to come back when I heard about the lack of AA filter on the K-5 IIs. It's a bit risky buying an unknown factor, but I'm not so worried as it's more of an evolutionary upgrade rather than a revolutionary new model.
