Re: Difference between K5 and K5IIS

I think what the OP is stating is that there isn't enough difference to cause him to run out and upgrade to the II or IIs. There are many who purchase the upgrade as soon as it hits the market. Then there are others who evaluate the upgrade and determine whether or not the upgrade has value to them. I made a similar decision with the K20D. I had purchased a K10 and was contemplating a K20 for a second camera, but I made the decision to purchase another K10 (I got a great deal). For my situation, at the time, the upgrade to more mp (and some other options) did not have the value as it did for others. I didn't upgrade until the K5. The situation is different for each person and their needs/requirements.
