Answer:
The Pentax K-5 II and IIs cameras can accept SDXC cards with a firmware update. The theoretical limit of SDXC cards is 2Tb, although I don't believe any card maker produces anything that large. As far as I know, Pentax (now owned by Ricoh) has not established any limit on maximum card size.

Answer:
I own K-30 and K-5 IIs. I had a Sony a35 and Nikon 5100 - these two were sold. I'm happy I tried Pentax, K-30 is already very good camera, but K-5 IIs is a blessing. The auto focus works so nice and precise that I couldn't believe while first days using it. It takes perfect focus even when my eyes can't see the details… see more I own K-30 and K-5 IIs. I had a Sony a35 and Nikon 5100 - these two were sold. I'm happy I tried Pentax, K-30 is already very good camera, but K-5 IIs is a blessing. The auto focus works so nice and precise that I couldn't believe while first days using it. It takes perfect focus even when my eyes can't see the details. In four months since I bought my K-5IIs I saw it using the focus light only once. The shutter is smooth and low noise, ultrasound sensor cleaner, perfect layout of controls, menus -- everything is intuitive and human friendly. The embedded flash is intelligent and absolutely useable. When I shown my X-mas party pictures to one of my mates, those were all taken with 18-135 lens using the embedded flash, he couldn't believe. He told me that his Nikon D800 is great camera, but its embedded flash would never let him do anything close to my shots in such a situation, he says that all Nikon embedded flashes are next to useless. He was looking at the picture of bottle rows which I took in the barman corner and couldn't believe there was flash used. The guy even opened that image in Photoshop to inspect the histograms :) . This camera delivers tremendous dynamic range, which always gives me last chance in case if there is under- or over-exposed shot or too dark or too bright part of image which I want to recover. I can hardly imagine what else would I want to expect from a DSLR camera.
I'm checking K-3 sample photos on the net and thinking that I wouldn't exchange my K-5IIs for K-3. The sensor of K-5II is a kind of 16Mp technology apogee. Look, FujiFilm, Olympus and Panasonic stick to 16Mp in their new mirrorless cameras. 16Mp is enough to print a 6ft poster. The 16Mp RAW files are easier and faster to post-process on your PC. I think I'll keep/use my K-5IIs for years to come. see less

Answer:
No problems, at all. Pentax cameras use K-mount lenses dating back to 1975. However, the newer lenses are optimized for digital.

Answer:
If money is no object, get the FA 77mm Limited. It's the legendary Pentax portrait lens that we all dream about. Otherwise, I'm sure the DA 50mm 1.8 that's been recommended is a fine prime lens. The WR 18-55 and WR 18-135 (the one I purchased) are good general purpose zooms.

Answer:
The K5iis is a more advanced camera but it certainly does a wonderful job in photography. If you can read the manual and know a little about the SLR then you will n go wrong with this camera.
