One more thing: between a K-5 and K-5II, definitively get the K-5II.

I've gave up on my Pentax dreams with the AF on the K-5. I know Pentax claims that the K-5II has improved AF, is that something you can confirm?

AF issues with the K5II and K5IIs are now sorted!

Same applies to the K30 and K-01.

Yes, AF is sorted. In body SR has been improved also. The pentax K5IIs is the near perfect APSC camera, at an unbeatable price for the quality you get. If I were Olympus, I would simply copy it, with the 5axis IBIS, and together with the zuiko lenses, wow!
The zuiko SHG lenses are still well above the best pentax lens offerings.
Pentax has the cameras, Olympus has the lenses.
