The world first AA filterless APS-C DSLR deserves a thread of its own. Here you go! With 16-50. WR rocks for water sports! Please click on image for pixel peeping tom or Exif information;








Lightbulb.... I went to your Flickr posting and saw the one image that you labeled "Bad Moire". Maybe it's my eyes but, I couldn't detect it in the array of bright colors. Maybe the IIs "is" the camera for me. Are you happy with it? Incidence of moire isn't a big issue?

Haven't had too much chance to use it, but here's one from a walk soon after I received mine.

K5 IIs, FA* 300/4.5 + P F 1.7x AFA (510mm f7.7). 1/250, lens wide open (AFA converts and rounds to f8), ISO 4500, handheld. Shot in jpeg, very mild NR and sharpening in post.

Wow that's an amazing shot!

No moire on that photo but i added a moire text on it for fun to rub those iis doomsayers

So far no moire for me after hundreds photos. If moire could be easily eliminated like ca or pf, isn't it no brainer to go for aa filter less camera for maximum possible performance?

Hey, Lightbulb... I noticed in your profile that you have the 18-135 WR with the K-5IIs. How does that combination work for you? Does that lens really diminish the gain in clarity of the IIs? That's the lens I wanted to buy (WR for hiking up here in Alaska) with the K-5IIs but, without flipping for a DA* lens, I may be better off just using my 18-250 on my K20 and get something else for the IIs - if and when I buy it.

Lol resist is futile Steve!

Slamdesiak they say k5iis needs good glasses to bring out its strength. I have tested the 18-135 and obviously there isimprovement in iq. Not sure if it is the better sr or something else. The k5iis can take aggressive cropping no matter which lens i put on. Very different from my previous k5.

I will not sell the 18-135 given its performance with the k5iis.

In Australia we were lucky that the K-5 II s came out just at the right time for festival season.
