Default K-5 or K-5II

Considering an upgrade to one of these. Can get the K-5 body for $679.00 or the II for $839.00. Is there much of an upgrade getting the II. Have never seen either one-don't know big or heavy they are. Looking for a faster focus and true skin tones.

Thanks

From another forum, this is a comparison chart for the iST DS, K5 and K5 II/K5 IIS. It may help with making an initial comparison.

I have the K-5. Love it. But I bought it back in November 2011. A friend of mine just bought a K-5 11 S. If I were buying now, think I would get the K-5 11 S, rather than the K-5 or the K-5 11.

I'm perfectly happy with the K5. But, then I've never seen the others.
