Pentax K-5 User Review

Photography is back on my website!

The Pentax K-7 was a great camera but had some flaws. I' was looking for faster AF, better sensibility and reduced noise. All reviews I've read about the K-5 were positive on those points.



Combining the Pentax 100 € cash-back program, a 10% discount from the reseller and a fair price for my former K-7, I decided to update my dSLR for a Pentax K-5.

As usual and as I did for the *ist, K-10D and K-7 as well as for the SDM lenses and accessories, I'll share my discoveries on an on-the-go basis. Stay tuned!

The first impression when switching from a K-7 to a K-5 is the lack of surprise. I felt as I hadn't changed my camera: I was at home!

Nice point, all the gear I used with the K-7 is ready for the K-5, lenses, accessories and flash.



The ergonomics of the K-7 were excellent, but Pentax pushed them even further, refining some details on the K-5.

How does the Pentax K-5 perform in difficult conditions, as low light or mist?

Just a quick note about my website.

I closed all the accounts linked with Google, including webiste, mail, pictures, videos, ...

I've launched a new website about photography, available at here.

The content is currently being transferred to the new website.

Enjoy
