Pentax k-5 legend!

Pentax k-5 (k-5, k-5 II, k-5 IIs) is legend! OK?
All the best from Macedonia.

It's close to being a legend, at least! I'm still waiting for a K-5 with upgraded processing and video.

It would be a legend IF Pentax could make it's AF system as good as Nikon.

For me it is already a legend.
This moaning about AF is boring. The K-5 AF is more than enough for most of us.

There is always room for improvement, but the K5 II is the best APS-C camera on the market now. To better it, you really need to go to one of the full frame offerings D600 or D800.

Not sure if Pentax can pull similar effects with the Sony 24 megapixel sensor. It really would have to keep the K5s dynamic range and equal its high iso performance to make it worthwhile over the K5 series.
