About the Pentax K-5 IIs

Pentax is carving out a substantial niche for itself by focusing many of its products on the outdoor and adventure market. Today the Ricoh-owned camera maker introduced two new flavors of its top line camera, the Pentax K-5 II and Pentax K-5 IIs. Both cameras feature a rugged body construction that is water-, cold- and dust-resistant, and are built around the same 16MP APS CMOS sensor. The main difference is that the K-5IIs comes without an anti-aliasing filter, making it better suited for commercial and studio photography, while the K-5 II is designed to be taken to places where the photographer may not necessarily have control over lighting.

Pentax K-5 IIs Key Features:
16MP CMOS sensor
No anti aliasing filter: improved sharpness and detail
ISO range 100-12,800 native, expandable to 80-51,200
3-inch, 921k dot LCD monitor
Weather-resistant
Shake Reduction Optical
Viewfinder with 100% field of view
7fps burst rate up to 30 consecutive images in JPEG
18 digital filters
RAW or JPEG format

The Pentax K-5 II's magnesium alloy exterior and highly rigid stainless steel chassis is sturdy and lightweight, with 77 seals to keep out dust and rain. The camera i s claimed to offer reliable operation down to 14 degrees F, and has a shutter release with a top shutter speed of 1/8000 second, rated to last up to 100,000 shots.

The glass Pentaprism viewfinder offers a full 100% field of view, with a Natural-Brigh t Matte II focusing screen for easier manual focusing. The camera has a Shake Reduction mechanism that can compensate for up to three stops worth of shakiness, according to Pentax; helpful features include an electric level function with a vertical level scale, automated compensation for distortion and lateral chromatic aberration when using Pentax's DA, D, FA and FA limited lenses (all of which are available at Adorama). You have a choice of three grid patterns while in live view mode.

The difference between this K-5 IIs camera and the K-5 II version is that this K-5 IIs does not come with a built-in anti-aliasing filter. The filter reduces digital distortion, in particular the moiré pattern found in certain shots, however it also decreases detail resolution. Removing the anti-alias properties means the K-5 IIs offers superior resolution and intense details and is ideal for photographers who shoot in RAW and can control better moiré and distortion without the in-camera filtering.

The Pentax K-5 IIs is commonly used for Family photos, Landscape/scenery, Low light, Sports/action, Travel, Video, Weddings, Wildlife and more.The Pentax K-5 IIs is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Photo enthusiast, Semi-pro photographer among others.The Pentax K-5 IIs is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Pentax K-5 IIs: Easy to use, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fast shutter speed, Good image quality, High ISO performance, Image stabilization, Large clear LCD and Quiet.
