think i'm gonna learn to live with the smaller buffer and hope the faster write speeds of the new sdxc cards (when it gets the firmware update for them) will clear the buffer faster letting me get similar performance as the k-7 - as this cameras autofocus and low light capabilities just seem outstanding
There seems to be a lot of mis-information on the web & indeed even on Pentax's various websites in different languages because the German one has much higher figures than the English one !

DCR got their hands on a K5 at Photokina and reported that you could shoot jpgs at 7 fps up to 22 frames max (not as much as the K7's 40 but more than enough for me - i'd never need to shoot for more than 3 secs non-stop) and RAW up to 15 frames (again enough for me) but the camera was in fact still shooting. They also reported the AF was superb focusing and shooting just as fast as they could point it around the room.

Done deal for me.

My K200D is still filling all my photographic needs and then some. Any future purchases will be lenses.
