I wrote a review about the Pentax K10D when I bought one several years ago. Lots of shutter actuations later (I mean LOTS) it was time to relegate my trusty K10D to a backup role. The K5 was the only choice. I tried one at one of the few retailers on the High Street that stock Pentax these days and fell instantly in love with it. It has many features added over the years like liveview and a sensitivity priority mode. But, lighter and more comfortable overall, it feels crisper, less 'clunky' with a shutter that's so quiet by comparison that you wonder if it fired if there's any background noise! The autofocus is faster - although it does miss from time to time if the subject is difficult. The sensor works fine at fast sensitivities where there's little evidence of intrusive noise until you really push it up. Yes, it's a fine upgrade and retains my loyalty to the brand. It has just been discontinued by Pentax and I wonder what the next generation will offer. If the K-5 is as good as the K10D, I'll be keeping it for a while...

This is the top dog in the Pentax range with a excellent clear CMOS sensor with a 16.2 megapixal sensor for great grain free shooting and image print upscaling. Great benifits is that the Shake Reduction tech in the camera for blur free pictures is actually alot harsher and sharper meaning your photos are cryistal quality also it has 77 seals for a weather resistant body so its great in all weather shooting conditions

Overall a amazing camera and value for money this cheap its a steal the camera for those unfamilier with Pentax is Equivilant to the Canon D60 or the Nikon D7000

Bought this on ebay to upgrade from my K20D which I passed along to my son. No regrets.
This is an awesome camera. I was primarily interested in ISO noise reduction, and the expanded pixels. Could care less about video. I can do that on my smart phone. As with the K20D, I really like being able to use my many 35MM Pentax primes. I seldom shoot in anything but manual mode as I develope and print B&W in my darkroom. Habit has carried over to digitals. Highly recommend this camera and would give it a 9.5/10 for my needs.

I already had a K-7 and needed an additional body. I love this as much as my K-7 and a lot more as it has so many extra features that I will use (it won't make my K-7 redundant though). The picture quality is better than the K-7 but only if you were to be really picky. All in all great camera and it competes really well with Nikon...about time too!!
