After careful consideration, the K-5IIs is...

...disgustingly sharp. This thing is unbelievable. I haven't shot anything I'm allowed to share yet, but I will as son as I can. I'm psyched to work to start coming back from the printer and see how it looks on page. But on screen this beast is blowing my mind on a daily basis. Especially when paired with the 31mm Ltd. Razor sharp. More to come!

Oh, I meant the good kind of disgusting. Like how Michael Jackson was bad, but it was a good thing.

Everything is better with lubrication, so put some vaseline filter on FA31 (;

Also, the AF in lowlight and tungsten in unquestionably better. Less hunting, faster lock, more accuracy. That is all for now. I'll just keep live streaming my thoughts. Pix coming soon!

Looking forward to your image posts especially for landscape

The K-5 IIs + FA77 can show so much detail on hair for portraits, it's scaring me.
