K-5 Size and Weight Comparison

Hey all,

I realized that there isn't anything out there on the web that allows for fast and easy size comparisons of the K-5 to other cameras. There are older K-7 ones, but those don't have the newer competition cameras. There is, but there wasn't anything completely comprehensive and quickly viewable in a .jpg image. I hope this helps, as it has certainly made it a lot easier for me (and once it's done, never have to make it again! lol).

I got all the images from and imported them into Gimp, where I compiled them all with layers. Yes, it took me forever lol.

Let me know if you can see any room for improvement

Nice comparison. I'm surprised by how close in size the Canon T3i is.

Thank you for the hard work. It's a fantastic comparison. This would be really useful on Amazon's product review page.

Very useful. Inspired me to make one of the various pentax mounts. If anyone has some side and top elevations of a 67ii, I would very much like to add them.
