Default Any K-5 IIs'ers our there?

Hi all! Wish I were not such typical first-born perfectionist, but like I did when I bought my K-7, I am debating whether to get the K-5 II or the K-5 IIs. If anyone has any of these cameras, would you be willing to say how do you like your camera? I also keep thinking (dreaming) that somehow, prices will fall... or drop a little, but the K-5 is still quite expensive.

Anyway, here in Finland, just this weekend I saw the first leaves beginning to bloom on our lovely Birch trees... I took this shot of some bark (sort of design photo), using my Pentax K-7.

Many thanks.


P.S. Oh, one nagging question... I understand that the K5 IIs has no Flash Hot Shoe. So what is that all about if one wants to do some serious flash photography. I wonder if it would be better to just go with the K5 II.
