  • Excerpt: This camera is a stellar performer, I just love handling, sensor (dynamic range, level of noise at high ISO, no AA filter), weather-sealing, burst rate. Great for still shots. AF works perfectly in low-light. On the other hand, it is not so good for action/sport, continuous AF is just not good enough in following the moving subject.

Shoots well with nice sharp images.

  • Excerpt: There are a lot of settings and menu options. It takes awhile to get the settings dialed into one's particular style of shooting. Nonetheless, the images are very sharp. The white balance is OK… could be better but since this camera is 2-3 years old now, it's about as good as other cameras from 2-3 years ago. Very good grip and ergonomics. I have a largish hand and did not find this camera body uncomfortable to hold.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor white balance

sharper than plain K-5

  • Summary: it is definitely sharper than my plain K-5. I did see interference patterns in a photo of a television screen, but such closely spaced patterns are rare. the new K-3 has been announced... upgrades sensor, etc it is a five star product, except for the fact that a newer model is available.

Great camera!

  • Summary: Very happy with the camera. Efficient service. I upgraded from and *istD and this camera definitely has more "bells and whistles" than the old camera. My only complaint is that the camera did not come with the owner's manual. I had to print it off of the computer.

No owners manual

  • Summary: The camera itself is really a work of art. Looks and feels very well made and ready for action. I picked this model and the Pentax WR lens as I am going to use the camera on my trip to Europe and I wanted a rugged and weather resistant camera and lens. However, I was surprised that it did not come with a printed manual. It had a cd with the package with no instructions. Not only no printed manual but not even a quick start guide.

  • Excerpt: Поменял Pentax K-5 на сабж, чего и всем советую. Хотя один момент таки есть. Если сейчас сложить все затраты, можно было-бы взять ФФ и неплохую оптику к нему, хоть и в одном экземпляре. Вот и думайте, куда двигаться.
  • Pros: Точнее, резче, увереннее в слабом свете чем простая пятёрка. Теперь мой 77 лим попадает туда, куда мне надо и на открытой.
  • Cons: Цена. Жулики от торговли доводят цену до абсурда. Но тут уж ничего не поделать, воровская государственная идеология правит бал.

  • Excerpt: Хороший аппарат за свои деньги, но не без недостатков. В основном меня достает невнимяемая работа баланса белого, на Pentax K200D у меня проблем не было, только изредка ошибался автомат, а на К5 целая проблема... неправильно подбирает цветовую температуру. В студийной съемки не могу добиться естественных цветов. И как по мен плохо работает следящий автофокус, часто мажет. Больше сказал о недостатках так как о достатках пишут все..
  • Pros: Резкость, низкие шума на высоких ISO, скорострельность, работа от родного аккумулятора до 1200-1300 фото в RAW, цепкий афтофокус даже при плохом освещении, тихий, пиле-влага защитный, прочный корпус, интуитивно понятное управление, небольшие габариты.
  • Cons: Баланс белого, слидяший автофокус, видео, моно звук, в комплекте был китайский ремешок не акти качества(, картинка аля NIKON...

  • Pros: Уже как неделю юзаю эту вещь, очень даже не плох. Объектив брал отдельно SMC 18-135 DA как бюджетный повседневник.
  • Cons: Пока еще не обнаружил.
