Pentax K-5 II Review
4.5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Jun 4, 2013

For the third straight generation, the Pentax K-5 II retains the surprisingly compact body that debuted with 2009's K-7. That's great news because it's still one of our favorites, pairing great ergonomics and a generous array of external controls. The Pentax K-5 II also retains the 16-megapixel image sensor that debuted in the K-5, and while that lags some current rivals in terms of resolution, it still impresses with swift burst shooting, great image quality and a wide sensitivity range. What's new? There's a tweaked AF system that focuses better in low light, and a more rugged tempered glass cover over the main LCD panel. Pentax's enthusiast flagship also carries more sensible list pricing than did the K-5. Sure, it's a relatively modest mid-term update, but given the popularity of its predecessor, that's no bad thing. If you're a still image shooter in the market for an enthusiast SLR, the Pentax K-5 II is a camera we're happy to recommend!

Awesome Camera
4 Star Review   By Blacknight659 on Adorama - Oct 23, 2013   

I switched from Canon to get this camera! Wow, its wonderful. I love the image quality, lens selection, and weather sealing of this camera system. Overall I would say this is a absolutely wonderful system! I feel Pentax releases more Winner lenses than any other manufacturer. Because of the clean image high ISO can produce, you can often times get away with a slower lens. This makes the system WAY more affordable. I highly recommend this camera and the Pentax System.

Great Image Quality, Reliability Issues?
4 Star Review   By DangRabbit on Adorama - Oct 17, 2013   

I've only recently started using my K-5 professionally, and unfortunately, thought the dynamic range and image quality are outstanding, the camera ended up needing to go in for service. For a camera I really haven't used all that much in comparison to how some people shoot, it really should have held up better. Dust under the LCD was an issue from the beginning, but Pentax will fix that, but a $300+ repair for a camera body that hasn't been abused and has low shutter actuations is really quite frustrating. I will say, I've convinced quite a few people to switch to Pentax from other brands... it's an amazing camera overall and their selection of lenses, especially primes, is mind-blowing... which is why I stick with the brand. I bought a K-01 as a backup (luckily), and got it real cheap... and as ugly as it is, it's a great tripod camera. It's the image quality that matters, and in this way Pentax delivers.

4 Star Review   By Phorock on Adorama - Oct 14, 2013   

Used for a variety of uses, sports action photos for school, family portraits, nature, landscapes. The options available make it very adaptable. Controls are pretty straight forward, easy to use.

All what I need
5 Star Review   By M. Zein on Adorama - Oct 14, 2013   

I bought my k5 ii a month ago, and I am so far enjoyed shooting with it in different environments. I have actually shot in a TV studio, in night clubs, in daylight... I shot all of my pictures in RAW and I find that to be a very good idea to take advantadge of the k5 ii full potential. Cropping, Adding some contrast and sharpening is usually all what i need in post processing. All in all I am very satisfied with what this dslr delivers. Read more at: www.pentaxforums.com/c...

It's better than the k-5 so get it!
5 Star Review   By mattieyp3 on Adorama - Oct 14, 2013   

I'm not a professional but have been practicing photography for around 15 years. I own the k-5 and I love it. It feels good, the controls are perfect and it has a ton of features that someone like myself wants. I've been shooting long enough that I need more than an entry level camera and this camera did it! It's got pro-level features without the pro price. Plus, the The k-5 II is only the next step up from the k-5 so you can't possibly go wrong.

Pentax K5
3 Star Review   By bornamachine on Adorama - Oct 14, 2013   

I have owned a K5 not the K5 II and decided to sell it. K5 II has addressed some of the bugs I saw in k5 from what I understand. Things I liked. Design Build quality Battery Life Things I did not like. Hard to capture a SUPER sharp photo Auto focusing is not good. Flash is horrible as it over exposes everything Video offers no options and no compression offered Things that made me sell. Operating this camera is like driving a manual car, you cant just give it to someone to take a picture of say yourself and your wife and have it turn out perfect. Pros: Did take some amazing pictures with this cam!
