I'm much more confident in the low light focusing - I got shots before w/ the k5, but the k5iis is just a big step up in reliability and speed. Of course the sharpness is great, but the focusing is the key for me. The k5 is an amazing camera, no doubt. But the k5iis is a significant improvement... if you shoot low light, seriously consider the k5ii(s)!

Here's some snaps f/ a few get togethers...


Settings: 1/100 ƒ/2 ISO 3200 55 mm


Settings: 1/125 ƒ/3.2 ISO 12800 77 mm


Settings: 1/125 ƒ/2 ISO 3200 77 mm


Settings: 1/100 ƒ/2.2 ISO 3200 55 mm


Settings: 1/100 ƒ/2.5 ISO 800 55 mm

As far as I can tell, the k-5IIs and the FA31 were made for each other.

Agree, I am VERY pleased with my k-5iis and the FA31. Upgraded from a K10d so I expected a big improvement, but the k-5iis with the FA31 (both new to me) is extremely sharp. I shot some portraits (at f1.8) of my grand daughter that came out great.

FWIW: No moire on hundreds of pictures taken - inside/outside, people (clothing), backdrops at a car show - NONE. I wonder if the sharpness of the FA31 is a factor?

If anything, it's sharpness should induce moire - moire occurs when a pattern's lines match the size of a pixel on the sensor, and sharper lenses will allow for finer lines.
