Again, Worth the Wait

Because I had the D90 late, I also didn't feel too pressured to rush over and buy the K5 as soon as it came out. Not that I didn't dream about it. The K7 that I tried before felt so great that I knew I couldn't resist a similar camera with a better sensor. While I love the smaller size and even better build, I feel that some controls were better on the K20 and K10. Focus point selection for example. I also felt that the ISO button could have been used for something else since adding it seemed like Pentax only caved in to those users who couldn't bother to read the manual to know that the OK button doubled as an ISO button.
