Pentax K-5 ok for action?


I'm new to DSLR and I am considering several for my first. I really like the Pentax WR since I want to be able to bring my camera in most kind of weather (even cold, I'm Norwegian).

But I am unsure if the Pentaxes AF is quick enough to do sports, animals in flight etc. (will also do other kinds of photography, but what it to be able to do stuff like that too).

I know I have to practice my aim and timing etc to get good action shots, but I would also like the camera to be able to handle it.

Does anyone here have any experience with Pentax K-5 for that? (ie w/18-135 kit lens)?

I think the K-30 RAW buffer is a bit small and the K-5 II is a bit expensive, but I could consider that too.

Thanks for any advice!
