The picture does show a WR lens. So if you receive a non-WR one, you will have grounds for complaining. Many buyers have reported receiving a WR version. It is best to check with the seller before ordering of course

The K-5 is replaced by the K-5ii. Go to DPReview for comparisons between the two. The lens is AF, but the lens may or may not be weather resistant. If it says 'WR' in the name than yes.

It uses a single SD card. With older models, they could only accept certain sizes. I have tried a 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB card and have had no problems. I'm sure it can hold a 32GB card, I just prefer not to put all the eggs in one basket.

It depends on what things you value. Image quality wise, the K-5ii and K-50 are nearly the same. The K-5ii has: - better build quality (magnesium alloy vs plastic) - Weather sealing…
It depends on what things you value. Image quality wise, the K-5ii and K-50 are nearly the same. The K-5ii has: - better build quality (magnesium alloy vs plastic) - Weather sealing - Faster max shutter speed (1/8000 vs 1/6000) although 1/6000 is very good for that price. - More exposure bracketing options: 5 frames vs 3 - Mirror Lockup mode (but you can simulate on the K-50 using liveview mode) - Slightly faster fps (7 vs 6) - A deeper frame buffer - 100 grams heavier - A hair better sensor (14-bit vs 12-bit ADC) For me the build quality and weather sealing are probably the main differentiators. If those are not important, then the k-50 sounds like a great deal.

No, it is not considered medium format. In fact, it is not even a full frame 35mm camera. That being said, it is still a fine camera and should do most photographic jobs very well.
