Pentax K-5 IIs

PC Magazine
10 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Pentax K-5 IIs omits a low-pass filter in order to capture extremely fine image detail, but its video capture capabilities are behind the times.
  • Pros: No low-pass filter. Excellent viewfinder. Fast 6.2fps shooting. Good high ISO performance. Weather-sealed design. In-body shake reduction. Compact for its class. Excellent control layout.
  • Cons: Disappointing video experience.

  • Pros: Enestående detaljeskarphed, Rene billedfiler med høj dynamik, Gennemført brugervenlighed, Kompakt og solidt kamerahus
  • Cons: Ingen manuel kontrol over video-optagelse, Træg følgefokus, Lang lagringstid

Test: Pentax K-5 IIs (DSLR über 1.000 Euro)

CHIP Online
5 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Pentax bietet die Neuauflage der DSLR K-5 in zwei Versionen an. Das teure Sondermodell K-5 IIs kommt ohne Tiefpassfilter beim Bildsensor aus. Das rechnet sich jedoch nur für echte Schärfe-Enthusiasten, denn die S-Klasse bringt ein Quäntchen mehr Schärfe als das Standard-Modell.
  • Pros: Hervorragende Ausstattung, Feine Konfigurierbarkeit, Robustes, wertiges Gehäuse, Lange Akku-Laufzeit
  • Cons: Autofokus im Live-View und bei Video, Video-Funktionen bleibt funktional hinter der preislich ähnlichen Konkurrenz
