Pentax K5 II is an amazing camera for DSLR APS-C beginners!!

Mark Miwords "Know Thyself", Amazon

  • Summary: Great camera for the price! Not as extensive of a lens selection as you will find with Canon, Nikon and others but the PENTAX quality is SUPERB! The 35mm and 50mm Prime lenses are the added bonus to Pentax's innovative camera.

Practically perfect in every way

J. Krolak, Amazon

  • Summary: After one year of use (abuse), I have to admit that I love this camera. It has been reliable under nearly every condition from bright days to the dimmest interior shot. I will leave the technical reviews to the camera experts, but if you have used the brand before, it is hard to go wrong with the...

  • Excerpt: I have a complicated relationship with the K-5ii. Maybe writing a review will help straighten things out. With a camera as generally competent as the K-5ii subjective impressions are going to count for a lot, and little complaints get magnified. Well, fine ...

  • Excerpt: Bought this camera body after trading in my K10d & K20d. Read all the positive reviews-very disappointed with the image quality. My 8 yr old Ist DS blows it away when it comes to sharpness and IQ. Almost every shot has to be corrected with "unsharp mask"-IMHO this should not be necessary.
  • Pros: Nice size-High ISO capability
  • Cons: Photos are "soft"

  • Summary: Magnificent camera and lens--I've had Pentax products since 1974 and this is the best so far. Shoots perfect pictures even in adverse conditions. It's a winner.

Survived the Grand Canyon

  • Summary: Survived the Grand Canyon while other people's Nikons were failing from the sand, dirt, and water. Takes amazing pictures as the stats suggest. Many customization options available to tune shooting preference.

A paper copy in English would be useful to me

  • Summary: only disapointment is that the paper copy of the operation manual is in Japanese and all I get is the PDF version of it, on line. A paper copy in English would be useful to me.

Built to last, it is capable of taking pictures to last as well.

Fordhouse "Casehead", Amazon
16 November 2014
  • Summary: Great for low light, great in general. A worthy successor to my (in dslr years) ancient but beloved K10D and lost K20D. Smaller, slightly less comfortable to hold. The K10D and K20D felt supremely comfortable and secure in my hand, even when going down the moguls on skis.
