Stunning photos I think the DA21 is under rated on this forum, pic #4 shows just what it is capable of.

My only reservation about the K5 was if it retained that rich Pentax color (I shoot the same stuff as you) at low ISO.

To me the reference colors are what Zeiss glass gives me on my 5D MkII.
I can tell you K-5 is better, no kidding. The main difference are shadows,
they are not lost or clipped, they are colorful as well

From what I have seen posted on the web, I think that the K-5's huge DR and amazing ability to retain shadow detail are its greatest strengths. BTW, why don't your images look soft, like the test samples posted on dpreview?

my surprise is how good my 15 and 21 are...
Yes, I want to add them at some point too... but right now CBA is stronger than LBA

I was thinking about getting a 5d II for landscapes in the next months... maybe christmas but after seeing this thread grrrrr

My purpose, I'm having demand for large printing and 5dII would be better then my k7. (I'm not selling pentax, the idea was to add a 5dII plus 17-40/4L)
