Generally, unless in cold conditions, my K-5 will give a sensor overheated warning after 2-3 4Gb recordings at max quality. It does seem to be temperature dependent and varies in number of recordings it takes, so imagine I there is something to it.

There is also the problem of relatively low bit-rate compression. I also have a panasonic GH-1 with high-bitrate hack applied, and it handily outperforms the K-5 in video despite having an older m4/3 sensor. It's a shame, too, since the K-5 smokes it in dynamic range. You just have to look at the K-5 for what it is, a very fine stills camera with limited at best video capabilities.
Oh yes I seen videos from those Panasonic cameras they pretty sharp.
Here is video shot with Panasonic LUMIX GH1 and of course this for the Panasonic's Toughbook.

I've wrote a post to moderators about my topic they've closed : Is it a correct place to talk about video waiting them to open it again ?

"I perfectly understand why you closed this topic, sometime user are just chatting with a poor level.

But I think talking about video on the K5 is an interressant subject.

Some think it's useless, some thinks Pentax lakes quality, some thinks it have a very good quality.

Some of the critics are constructive some are a little useless.

So I think it could be usefull to open it again and try to give a better level to this discussion.

Could you do it."
