I am crossing over to Canon EOS 5D Mark II and found that it is a great camera. However, Pentax K5 is superior in every aspect of it, except of course that Mark II is FF. The high iso, the high fps, and the stealth shutter made the K5 the best camera so far. To the point that I will continue with the Canon, the lenses are absolutely great quality, and the CANON AF is second to none. but I will keep my K5. That being said, I miss my 1.5 crop for wildlife shooting. I may end up buying a Canon 7D for that purpose.
What do you mean by "Stealth Shutter"?

The K-5 has a very quiet shutter for a DSLR, I imagine that is what was meant.

Ditto. The K5's shutter is very quiet especially compared to my K-x

This my first DSLR. It certainly is quieter than my LX which rings hollow.

yes, thank you, I read that already, but I want to know if you have any news about that, because I am from Argentina and I wanna get the K-5 in November, because I know a person who comes here from USA, and the price is very accessible (here the K-5 costs almost 2000 dolars, so it's such a big difference).

Well, I will wait to see what's happen. Thanks

Now that the k5 is at $849, do you know how much time will last the selling of this one in B&H? I mean, 10 days, 15 days, 1 month? What do you think?
I am not able to ask b&h in the forum, so I ask you if you have any clues of this. Thanks

I was told that this is the last shipment- so it really depends on interest. B&H's Pentax shipments are usually in the 50-100 unit range.
