Get the K-5 IIs instead, but the K-5 is still better than a K-7 or before.

E. Ongerth, Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: If you're considering a K-5, it's an improvement over the previous K-7, K-10, K-20, K100D, etc. And it's cheaper than the newer K-5 II and K-5 IIs. But spending the extra for the II, or (especially) the IIs is worth it.

28 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Excellent sensor and generally good ergonomics with a few niggles - I am a left eye shooter who uses focal point selection often, and it is easy to accidently engage live view. Live view much improved over K20D, fps and buffer size (RAW) allow proper action photography, good high ISO if you do not...

  • Excerpt: Because I had the D90 late, I also didn't feel too pressured to rush over and buy the K5 as soon as it came out. Not that I didn't dream about it. The K7 that I tried before felt so great that I knew I couldn't resist a similar camera with a better sensor.

  • Excerpt: I have had this camera for 11 months now, and over 9000 shots later, I thought I would write a review. Lets just start by saying that this is the finest Pentax DSLR that has ever been made. Why? Well as an owner of the *istDS, K10D and K20D I think I might be a good guide on this.

PENTAX K5 vs the D7000 had both...

Radio Man "yarns13", Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: I saw all the rave reviews from both buyers and camera review sites on the K5 so I just had to have it. I recently sold my Nikon D90 and was in need of an upgrade. The ergonomics of the K5 are JUST great. It makes you want to pick it up and use it.

A superior camera

Sifu, Amazon
22 September 2011
  • Summary: I am going to write a short and sweet review. I will also keep it not technical that has been done well above. I started digital with the K100D the moved up to the K20D which is a very good camera. I was a pro for many years during the film days and once I got shooting again I love digital.

Great Alternative to Mainstream Cameras

Andrey Kirillov, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • Summary: Pentax K-5 is a great camera and should be definitely considered as a good alternative to mainstream brands. If you consider buying a DSLR give this camera a chance. Do not listen to those who say that you'll be stuck with limited choice of lenses or worse shooting range.
