Product Description

Pentax K-5 IIs 16.3 MP DSLR with smarter design and operation

When the K10D was released it was Pentax’s first venture into the ‘enthusiast’ DSLR industry, aggressive at enough time with opponents such as the Cannon EOS 30D and the Nikon D200. Four decades later truly the fanatic industry of the industry is as aggressive as ever and the K-5, Pentax’ newest providing to the ‘serious beginner photographer’, will have to battle for customers’ interest with companies the Cannon 7D, Nikon D7000 and D300S, and the Olympus E-5. At a release RRP of $1600 (body only) the K-5 is currently at a identical cost as its primary opponents but we would anticipate the road cost to go down earlier rather than later.

In first vision the K-5 is almost indistinguishable from the K-7 (in some marketplaces the K-7 will stay in the Pentax line together with the K-5). Apart from an additional ‘Fx’ (which appears for ‘flex’) brand on the personalized RAW key and a simple upgrade of the AF change on its back there are no easily important variations between the K-5 and its forerunner the K-7. However, there is more unique to be found under the bonnet – the K-5’s most important new element is a 16.3 mega-pixel CMOS indicator, which is probably carefully relevant to the receptors within the Nikon D7000 and Sony models SLT-A55. The new indicator delivers with it a greater maximum possible understanding (ISO 51200 in extended method, the biggest on any APS-C photographic camera to date), quicker ongoing capturing (7.0 fps vs the K-7’s 5.2fps) and a 1080p full HD movie method (the K-7 provided a rather non-standard 1536 x 1024 p maximum possible movie resolution). Other developments consist of an enhanced SAFOX IX+ AF system, got from the lately revealed medium-format 645D, which functions color-detection, broader protection of the AF factors and enhanced rate. Also new is a dual-axis electronic skyline (now with message as well as move indication) and a few extra electronic filtration and customized picture ways. Despite the changes, however, current K-7 customers will no question need very little modification time if they choose to update to the new design.
