Summary: I bought Pentax after a time of using Olympus FT system cameras. Pentax is great for low light scenes and portrait too. It is light weight and small size (for DSLR) but comfortable for using it with gloves. K-5 IIs have useful analog switches! After Year of using it I found one disadvantage - slow work with a memory card (I have fast card).
Excerpt: I have had no problem with this Camera and i take all kind of photos but i also use very good Glass on it...One thing that i know it don't matter how much you pay for a Camera...with out good Glass your photos will not be the best they can be....
Summary: I doubt I'm able to add something new about this camera. There are long, detailed and nice reviews from experienced people here - check them up. I already have a K-30 and was impressed from first shots using Pentax camera. It was my 3rd camera after Sony and Nikon (I sold them all including lenses and flashes) and I've finally felt that I found right path.
Summary: This is my first DSLR, so if you're a seasoned amateur or semi-professional, you're not going to gain anything from my review since I have no technical lingo. However, if you're kinda new to this and seriously wanting to invest in a nice camera for the long haul, en I can offer you some advice. I was looking for an entry level to mid-range DSLR. I researched for a two months before my purchase.
