Product Description

This new dustproof, weather-resistant and cold-resistant camera includes a newly developed SAFOX X AF sensor that delivers the broadest autofocusing EV range (-3 EV to +18 EV) in its class. The new PENTAX K-5 II / K-5 IIs offer a compact, solid body that delivers high quality image reproduction, especially when working in low light conditions. The camera’s new, highly sensitive AF sensor enables photographers to work with a luminous flux based on F2.8 levels in addition to F5.6, which increases the AF accuracy when using fast lenses. The AF sensor also includes an upgraded AF algorithm as well as the Select-Area Expansion feature, which automatically tracks the subject when it deviates from a pre-assigned selection point, by assessing data from neighboring sensors.

I am a proud owner of the Pentax K-5 and very happy with everything about it. I just received the Pentax K-5 II and tested it out. I tried it in a low light situation and the images are better. In addition, the LCD screen on the back of the camera is much better and I can better determine if the image is tack sharp or not. I would highly recommend to spend the extra amount and go for the K-5 II instead of the K-5 at a discount. PS - I believe Pentax is giving Canon and Nikon a run for their money. My advice would be to buy the body only and then invest in a good prime lens. The one to have is the 31mm. It is unbelievably sharp! I have the 100mm micro and the 55mm lenses. Both very good but, the 31mm is in a league all to itself. I hope this review helps.

I've had the K-5 for almost two years and it's been my workhorse. 30,000 photos of almost perfect autofocus, and almost perfect high ISO shooting. I was very satisfied with it, except for about 10% of my photos where the K-5 would simply not autofocus, but so wouldn't any other camera, so switching brands wouldn't help at all.

Enter the K-5II. I had many reviews and had asked people in other forums if they had found any significant differences between the K-5 and K-5II regarding autofocus in extreme low light. The responses I got pushed me over the edge so I thought I should give it a try.

Oh, man, does the K-5II deliver. Pentax built around the critically acclaimed K-5, giving it a better LCD screen, and most importantly, at least for me, amazing autofocus accuracy in low light. I shot more than 8000 photos in December, from different dance festivals, and all the shots I couldn't previously get with the K-5, the K-5II did. Mixed light, single spotlight, horizontal spotlights, all of very low intensity, the K-5II locked focus without a problem with little to no hunting. These events I shoot are essentially the same every year, with the same lights, and the previous two years the K-5 didn't help much in the low light scenes.

Other than predictive autofocus and accuracy everything is essentially the same. The autofocus speed is still great, I would say perfect for my needs. This is said by someone that shoots mostly ballet presentations.

I bought this to replace a K100D. The online reviews say it all. It is nice to be able to use old Pentax lenses and still take advantage of shake reduction. Ergonomics and menus are much improved/

I recently bought this camera body after doing a lot of research about it. It was a real toss up between it and the K 30. I decided on this one mainly because of the external flash socket since I have an older studio light I would like to use with it. I really liked the lower price of the K 30 and its reviews were outstanding. I like that both have the water resistance and temperature fluctuation ability--because I like to do outside shots especially in inclement weather. I liked that the K 30 was set up very much like my Kr and, of course, I liked the cheaper price too. However, I did buy the K5 II and I am very happy with it. Today I started taking pictures with it using it with and without the built-in flash--outstanding!!!! I tried again with the Kr to compare the two and, well, there isn't any. I have never been able to get such good exposure and color saturation with so little effort. I love this new body. I did find it to be heavier than I am used to and I will have to get used to the dial placement--but I can live with that. This camera feels very solid. If you do any wildlife or bird photography you will love the shutter--it makes almost no sound. This was an expensive purchase for me but I feel it will be well worth it in the long run. I purchased this through Electronic Basket and it came with all the kit was supposed to have--correct battery, manual, etc. The Pentax box was opened and the lens was removed--because I did not purchase the lens, just the body. I expected that it might come to me in a Pentax box with just the body and the accessories and not a box that advertised the lens as well. Not a big deal to me though. The seller was SUPER fast and was also good to converse with me before I made my purchase. No complaints.

Firstly, I am no professional photographer. Secondly, being a grad student, I have to manage my finances very carefully. With these two things being said, I find that the Pentax K-5 II to be an affordable semi-pro DSLR that exceeds my expectations. I am technologically knowledgeable enough to know that MPix ratings are not the only deciding criteria, and it pains me to see people lugging around >20MPix DSLRs, with lenses that only render close to 8MPix resolution. Heck, I met this person shooting a Nikon D5100, I think, and when I asked her what lens she had, she said she had a Zoom Prime. What a joke. Enough said.
Anyway, my inclination towards Pentax is two fold: Firstly, my dad used to have a Pentax MX-1 in the film days, and I started off with a DSLR (again I was even poor-er then, so a Pentax K-x). Loved the interface, but with a 18-55 kit lens @ F3.5 Max, there was only so much I could do with DOF etc etc. Secondly, a company without a great marketing department, if had made it this far, the weighting factor for good cameras is, formidable for Canikon, huge.
I moved from the K-x, to the K-01, to now the K-5 II. Again the 250$ difference between the IIs and II was a big deal for me. Especially since every new camera I moved to, I had to sell the older one, with much difficulty, and waiting to find a Fellow Pentaxian.
I loved the K-01, but it had trouble focusing with its contrast-detect AF. Also the e-dial broke. However, Pentax (now Ricoh) eventually refunded me the full amount I had paid for the camera.
