My 2011 Special Edition came with a notice that lists the improvements over the Standard K5:

Custom Grip
Reinforced glass for the LCD panel and monitor
Supports SDXC
Enables use of all ISO sensitivity values with exposure set to B.
Improved operating sequences and focusing speed for Contrast AF.

I suppose the last three could be firmware updates, but the grip does look different from the new Special Edition. Can't tell about the reinforced glass by looking at it. But it looks great next to my K1000 and ME Super which I use as bookends!
