What are the differences between the FP-2 and the FP-5? I'm told the FP-2 is more recent, and have overheard it has a few less, functions, er...sounds? I could get my hands on an FP-2 faster, so if there aren't really any notable differences (this will prolly come down to my opinion), I might just go and buy an FP-2 instead of waiting for a new FP-5 to be shipped into my area.

I thought the fp2 felt a bit too synth-like. You can find more opinions here:

I am going to play the FP2 later today and consider its action. I will also listen to the clarity of its piano sound and how is responds.
