Pros: 1) It's Pentax 2) unique and beautiful black and white with infrared filter and other filters 3) always beautiful color 4) Pentax lifestyle and philosophy 5) battery life seems very high 6) high-end shooting mechanism, soft touch 7) Silkypix software and complete manual both paper and pdf supplied 8) screen with sophisticated anti-glare vision technology 9) screen information on the screen changes orientation, when shooting vertically 10) it is robust and tropicalized 11) stabilized sensor 12) no AA filter 13) etc etc

Cons: It weighs and clutters a bit (but it doesn't matter - it's a Pentax)

Opinion: Finally, after years, I found a used Pentax at an affordable price and I happened upon this K5IIs that is on a level I have never tried so far. Years ago I had a K50 that I loved and I sold it for little, for an unforgivable error of judgment. I waited a long time before I could go back to Pentax but it was worth it. Although this K5IIs is older, it is much more advanced and sophisticated than the K50: metal body and structure with tropicalization, soft touch shooting, adaptive orientation screen information, screen with sophisticated anti-glare technology, no AA filter, Prime II processor, 16 Mp sensor but with 4 stars (degrees) of jpeg file quality and universal raw format availability. The battery life seems very high. Full menu. Lots of adjustments for color and b & w, each with its classic fascinating geometric graphic, 15 stops of screen brightness. Gorgeous Black and White, for my taste - as in all Pentax. Even the color photos are very nice but with a b & w so beautiful one does not notice. It weighs and clutters but it's worth it. It would be to carry it always with you. Born for photography but if you happen to make a short unpretentious souvenir movie, I think it's fine.

Pros: Ergonomics, sensor, weight, operating speed, autonomy, price, build quality, ISO, stabilizer

Cons: Autofocus, Video, unfortunately hard to find

Opinion: The latest Masterpiece APS-C Pentax, fully tropicalized, image quality from full frame. Penalized by an AF not really modern, it must be used in the old way... Autonomy of about a thousand shots, with the possibility of doubling it through battery grip, little curiosity on the BG, inside it is also placed a spare SD, very comfortable. Operating speed from real flagship, incredible ergonomics, all the keys placed in the right place, not to mention the AFS/AFC/M lever, removed on the K-3... Comfortable USER mode, very nice JPEG, light RAW. 5000 ISO fully usable, at 100 ISO moves from how clean it is. Very solid body, in my opinion a trickle worse than the K-5 (but this is my feeling) unfortunately difficult to find, there will be a reason if the owners keep it... Dom

Pros: major upgrade of the K-5, autofocus, LCD gapless, IQ and amazing definition

Cons: more expensive counterpart K-5 II, there is no escape to moiree, I would have also liked other updates

Opinion: 6ograve; here not ritroveremo.rnrnQui Ricoh, as seems to be tradition for versions II of its models, it has made little upgrade, but they are killer features. The body design remains unchanged except for the functional differences: the gapless LCD, brighter than the classic one, is now more incassato.rnrnE this is the first change, the second is the autofocus, often criticized and actually a bit 'lacking in K-5. The new SAFOX X module differs in the sensitivity of their points that now comes to -3EV and the central point at f / 2.8 allows greater accuracy with very fast lenses, and resolves some known issues in the previous module, which varied depending on the behavior type of ambient light (incandescent or fluorescent). Even the contrast autofocus, in my opinion already handsome on the K-5, is further migliorato.rnHo noticed a drastic improvement in the accuracy on the DA * 55 / 1.4 and the DA * 16-50 / 2.8. The K-5 II / s no longer loses a stroke, and wasNow. And it offers the best of themselves with poor luce.rnrnInfine we come to the key point of the S variant of the K-5 II: the absence of lowpass filter. I recommend this model only to advanced users who know they are going with this particular feature. The definition is greater and valuable, but the artifacts are around the corner and can force frequent interventions in post-production when photographing because garments of fine textures (so most of the photographs of events, reportage and portrait). rnPer me pay the price of moiree it's superior image quality, but for the type of photography that I do take a long time to postprodurre my photos. Not that everyone can feel the same way. I repeat, it is a specialized camera, and those who want the advantages of both technologies depending on the moment can orient themselves on the latest K-3 who own a definitive antialias.rnrnIn filter simulator, another very successful Pentax camera ch and he is also suitable for professional use.

Pros: Sizes, weather sealing, the sensor stabilizer, construction, absence of AA filter, customization, value for money.

Cons: It 'a Pentax, less marketable and less choice on second.

Opinion: In my opinion one of the best APS-C in circulation. Its 16-megapixel Sony sensor fusion remains a perfectly balanced between resolution and overall performance, including high ISO. rnPentax offers very compact camera bodies with a very high quality construction. Magnesium body, tropicalization really effective, smaller burden, great chance to personalizzazione.rnIl sector AF seems reliable, with the central point manage to connect with precision, even in situations of very low luminosity. I do not pronounce on the ability of tracking because it is a genre that is not practical. Very good dynamic range and resilience especially in the shadows (so in scenes with high contrast display for better preserving the highlights and then recover the shadows). The yield at high ISO is at the top in the segment APS-C, and 6400 ISO there are still usable photos with good detail, unless of prints to huge sizes. rnTra the pluses would remember also the stabilizer on the sensor, effective enough, and the absence of AA filter che enhances clarity (at risk moire, but I so far I have not found) .rnConsiderazione personal combined with limited fixed un''ottima can become an alternative to the SLR mirrirless in terms of reduction of weight and dimensions (a kit reflex and 5 stationary in less than 1500 grams is not to be underestimated ....)

Pros: solid, simple menus and intuitive even if you are a beginner, sharpness, tropicalization

Cons: I personally find just a little 'uncomfortable button AF point and the hook of the strap.

Opinion: and 'my first SLR and I can not help but speak well. As soon as you pick it up it soon becomes clear that it is a machine built seriously. Beautiful massive menus are accessed with ease. Convenient button lock nut. I am a beginner and do not want to get too technical. However fully satisfied purchase
