Tired of my slow K-5

I just got back from an Alaska cruise 2 weeks ago. My longest lens was the DA 55-300mm lens. For years, I've read posts how slow Pentax DSLRs are but I just ignored that until now. My K-5 plus a DA 55-300mm arejust useless for taking photos of the whales and bald eagles. For instance, we watched  a pod of hump back whales  for an hour or so. I had plenty of opportunity to take the pictures of the whales. But the darn K-5 was too darn slow. When the whales surfaced, I raised the camera and try to focus, it went izzzzz izzz izzzz then... cliked. But by then... where are the whales? They all disappeared under water.  All I could do was let out some profanity and mad. It went on like that for an hour or morer. Time to switch camera brand, wouldn't you?
