    I have problem to make any reply in this forum for the past week.
    Even after login, whenever i click submit my reply, it would ask me to login again. the bug keeps repeating. so I could make any reply for the whole week.
    is that happening to me only?

    I am using IE8 under win7 professional.

    Oh no, definitely not, I think the focusing and IQ are noticeably improved from the K-r and you do get what you pay for (of course, it's always exponential). And of course the quiet shutter is very amazing. Earlier on I had agreed with the Fn button issue that I think flowerpot had raised - with the K-5 I don't think it will be an issue, the only thing I change with the Fn button is the ISO and timer, and there is a dedicated ISO button! If change to timer, I will be using manual focus (landscapes with ND filter usually)... So actually the K-5 resolves one issue that the K-r has (for me, anyways).

    Aiyo, super lame la, I think it's saying that if you want to set different timer mode, you just keep pressing up... Want to set different WB just keep pressing left... Etc ....
