The thing is the D7100 wasn't announced till after i bought the k-5iis.

I have a few Limited and love them. I wasn't really interested in that crop-ability. 
I already had the k-x and a few manual lenses I really love. With the K-5iis I also bought some autofocus primes and the da 55-300.

What I really wanted was a Camera with decent autofocus and good low light capabilities which the K-5iis has. I have done some sports of the local soccer team but I normally do portraits. I just wanted to know what i loose in the K-5iis except for the crop-ability. Is there anything else that I loose?

Don't get me wrong I really love the K-5iis the images are amazingly sharp. I was just wondering.

Thanks for all the replies!
