Just wondering ... It's not too much bigger than the GH2. But a whole lot heftier.
Found this on flickr for you

Yes, to me it is, go ahead !
I do hereby grant you Pentax K-5 absolution - please do share your thoughts and photos from it. It's serious and it is more compact than all many other cameras.
I always liked Pentax. They are a real camera company.
I used to carry an H1a as a backup for longer lenses.
It was sooo much smaller & lighter than my Nikon's.
If they don't let you on over here, I'll make a spot for you across the street...
Hey, if I can have a medium format "small" camera, your Pentax is small enough.
No poaching Don...oh wait, Armando lives here and over there, too.
yay I've been trying to control myself from posting my k5 images here for quite a while, its great to hear its been 'green-lit'. Hope to post some more k5 photos soon (just did)
K-5 want has overcome me. I was holding out fine but came across a price too good to refuse .
Drum roll for succumbing to GAS with the "a price too good to refuse" reason!
Perhaps this is really more of a syndrome than a disease? I'd say this iteration is called GAS: The Godfather Syndrome - AKA "a price that was too good to refuse" syndrome.:tongue:
Looking forward to a big bump in Pentax K-5 photos down the line!
Just think of all the money you've saved by buying at a great price.
I use that one all the time for lots of things!
Welcome to the K-5 club! Maybe I won't return the K-5 then. I keep thinking it's too big for me.
The GAS is spreading ...
The way I see it, for this price I can give it a good tryout over a significant period of time and still sell it without much loss .
I'm sure that it will be too big/heavy to be my primary camera, but as a second camera to keep things "fresh", it has a lot of appeal. Should be here tomorrow, along with a DA 70/2.4 :smile:.
Nice choice of lens. How did you make your lens decision?
K5 - 35mm 2.8 macro Limited
Having had this camera for the last couple of weeks I've finally taken some pictures I'm really quite happy with The camera is a solid fellow and I find it's fairly comfortable in my hands. The first lens I ordered, the 40mm Limited pancake, was faulty and I returned it for the above 35mm macro as I thought I'd get more use out of the macro feature. I've spent the last week trying to calibrate this lens without going through all the chart/tripod/measuring palaver and I think I finally have it to where I'm reasonably happy at +2 in the adjustment menu. Only time will tell as I'm a terrible pixel peeper. I spent today just taking random stuff and trying to get a feel for the camera and lens together and here are a few I've processed the way I like them. Not all are razor sharp but they have a feel that I like in a photo and I use the Ricoh and pp in a similar way so they are essentially "me" so to speak
These are stunning Christilou, I especially like the first two.
Well, what a difference time makes, eh, Christina?! These look really great to me. So the Pentax K-5 is a keeper after all?
Yes, BB! I'm beginning to see that it has possibilities for me
