That's exactly what I have found Sue in looking around to see what my s/hand lens choice might be if I go for the K5. Lens choice is the only thing that is holding me back from a K5 purchase instead of the more logical (for me) D7000.
I am also finding difficulty in establishing whether any TTL metering is available on the K5 when older K/KA mount lenses are used. One of the several improvements in the D7000 over the D90 is that it will allow TTL metering of up to 9 of my old (but excellent) Nikkor AIs lenses. The use of 35 years or more of Pentax lenses with full SR capability is loudly trumpeted by Pentax in their K5 promotion but the lack of mention of TTL metering suggests there is none
