With its fully weather sealed and cold-proof design, the Pentax K-5 IIs is a great companion for active lifestyles. It's ready to record every action in striking imagery with its 16.3 MP CMOS sensor and 11-point SAFOX X autofocus system. Built with no anti-aliasing filter, it brings out the full potential of image sensor's resolving power to deliver exceptionally sharp, finely detailed images. And with its sturdy stainless steel chassis and superior shake reduction, this is the camera you'll need wherever life takes you.
16.3 megapixel CMOS sensor The high-resolution 16.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, with integrated analog-to-digital (AD) conversion circuitry, captures outstanding image detail with pixels to spare.
PRIME II Engine The K-5 IIs features the proven Prime II as its imaging engine, which processes 14-bit, multi-gradation image data at high speed. It produces high-quality, finely detailed images, with approximately 16.28 effective megapixels, that are rich in gradations and fine in resolution. With its advanced noise-reduction process, this imaging engine also helps the K-5 II attain these super-high sensitivities.
Fully weather sealed The fully weather sealed and cold-proof design resists water, fog, snow, sand, dust, and more, for top performance in extreme field conditions as well as in the studio. Durable magnesium alloy covers surround the sturdy stainless steel chassis.
11-point SAFOX X autofocus system The highly advanced, and accurate 11-point SAFOX X autofocus system offers the widest EV focus range in its class, and is ideal for focusing in low conditions – as low as -3EV.
Anti-Aliasing filterless design The anti-aliasing filterless design achieves superior resolution for rich, detailed imagery at supreme resolution where camera settings, lens selection, and shooting conditions are controlled to prevent moiré.
Shake Reduction The Pentax body-based shake reduction (SR) stabilization system is compatible with every Pentax lens ever made.
This review is from: Pentax K-5 IIs Digital SLR Camera Body
Pros: Does well in low light situation. Takes great pictures.
Cons: Small view finder is difficult to use when manual focusing. I think most DSLRs have this problem. Adding a focus prism helps, or focusing using the live-view mode.
Other Thoughts: I chose a Pentax camera because I had a Pentax film SLR and they still use the same lens mounts which saved me a lot of money. Even if I did not already have the lenses, this camera would have been worth it.
