Editor's Review

The K-5 is Pentax's latest enthusiast/semi-pro dSLR, an update to last year's K-7. It's remarkably similar to that camera, with a few upgrades including a 16.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, expanded ISO range (up to 51,200 expanded), faster continuous shooting, and a true 1080p video mode. Reviews of the camera are overwhelmingly positive, with reviewers noting best-in-class image quality, the solid weather-sealed body, and diminutive size. Pentax has since come out with a couple cameras, the K-01 and new K-30, but at the K-5's current price point that's probably the one to get.
