Pentax K-5 IIs wins Cyberphoto.se "Ace of the year Award"

The biggest and best (most award-winning) Swedish online store Cyberphoto.se has given their awards of the the year and the K-5 IIs won their "Ace of the year Award".

Ace of the year - Pentax K-5 IIs
"A robust, good-looking, well functioning and good priced camera. Also very flexible as it got the same K-bayonet as Pentax launched 1975. The S-model, like the Leica M9, lack the AA filter. Nikon 800E has a modified AA-filter. Pentax K-5 IIs is substantially cheaper than its AA-lacking counterparts. The lack of AA-filter gives a noticeably more details. The backside is that the risk for moiré increases. Pentax shows that they can. The award "ace" ("ess" in swedish) obviously is connected to the letter "s" in the product name if somebody missed it. It gets the award because it's worth the exposure."

Nice find. I wonder what Pentax has next. K-3?

Off topic, Strange that the Padfone would win over it's sucessor the Padfone 2.
Was considering the Padfone 2 for sometime... Then... jumped on the iShip.

Maybe it's too new as it was pretty recently released?
