Yonguno is my preferred speed light choice with the K5's. I had unpredictable results with pttl, but if you use radio triggers (like I do), you must shoot in manual anyway. Regarding lag time: I shot (in raw) until the buffer was full and shots slowed down (more than twenty something). It took 28 seconds to review. A single shot is reviewable in less than 2 seconds. I have never felt constrained by the time it takes to review single shots. I don't shoot multiples that often, and then for just a few. I would say it takes @ 1 second for every shot you shoot.

If you go for a K5, go for the K5iis. It's an amazing photographic tool, and incidents of moire are negligible.

Yep, I'm looking towards the K5iis. It's such a bargain right now for the level of quality. I also think it give me a way forward. The K-3 may be better, but not enough for the price difference right now.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
