I'm afraid that your photo site won't display to either this Forum, or loaded directly as a URL in a web browser.

Quite a noticeable difference. The K-5IIs shot of the rooftops is blurrier than the K-5II, but even so looks like it has better detail. The tile shots have such a pronounced difference it looks like the K-5II one is out of focus.

Peer if you have the original prints or have at least examined them: what differences do you see, and how big are these differences?

conradj, no - the samples are from the internet - and the url i cant find anymore.

PS: ..on my meaning of the differences to the pics ontop: the larger datails of the IIs is awakened a bigger depth dimension ( in MY mind )

This is a sample of moire from a K-x...



now with the AA filter missing in the K-5 IIs, does this mean cases like in this photo will show even stronger moire?
while web viewing will make the strange color pattern negligible, if it shows up more pronounced in print... I'm going to have a headache in PP

Someone in the other web site was saying this sample images taken only by K-5IIs use extrasharpness and others were not. Is that ture?

Yes, it will.

I don't understand this craze about amputated models like the K-5 IIs or the D800. The AA filters in Pentax cameras are not too strong as they allow some moiré still to occur.

If that were true, the deception would soon be discovered when reviewers actually got their hands on the cameras. I personally doubt that any manufacturer wanting to stay in business would sanction such blatant manipulation. The last time I recall anyone doing that was Isuzu in the 1960s, when they grossly exaggerated performance claims for their small sedan, the Bellette. They were quickly exposed by testers, and just as quickly withdrew the ads.

If there's any single thing you should beware of on Internet forums, it's FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt). Enthusiastic hyperbole possibly runs a close second, but often is less easily spotted.

I don't understand this craze about the IIs moire. Since we still have very little to show that. and what we have is not from everyday day use from owners.

I promise as soon as I get mine, I will spend a week running around taking pictures that will show moire so that all of you can rest in peace.........or not.....

Using what RAW converter?

When I upgraded from Lightroom 3.5 to 4 I noticed an increased amount of moire on my photos. Before it would only show on extreme cases whereas with v4 i see more a lot more often.

This was using my K-x and now K-30.

If it's that bad using a dSLR with AA, then using one without the filter is going to be hell.

I just hope they do something about it through software. I'm not sure how Nikon did it for the D800E, since it's not technically an "AA-less" camera, they just created a workaround for it, but there's still something in front of the sensor.

I tried out Capture One v6 (used Photoshop in ACR 5 before). Not sure if there's any increase in moire between the different programs but AFAIK I saw them in both. Only now that I was thinking of upgrading the the II-s did I really think about moire.

It is not a 200MP sensor, so you'll see moiré. No need to wait for user reports. The D800e has the same pixel density and one can already look at examples showing moiré. As a matter of fact, when considering equivalent images, the 16MP K-5 IIs will show moiré more often than the 24MP D800e.

I'm sure many users will report back that they aren't getting moiré in practice. These users, however, should ask themselves whether they are really exploiting the potential of an AA-less camera.

Not possible, in general. Moiré is the result of spurious information being recorded (that should never have been recorded in the first place) and there is no way in which the destroyed information can be recovered.

The cleverer moiré fixing software will become, the better it will be able to patch things up so that it looks inconspicuously, but in general nothing short of content-aware filling will be truly satisfactory and I don't see that coming to standard software solutions anytime soon.

The "something in front of the sensor" are two birefringent plates that cancel out each other (rather than two birefringent plates that scatter in two orthogonal directions).

This is just a particular solution to not have any "AA filtering" effect, but it is equivalent to having no filter at all. Completely omitting the filter would require a different sensor alignment and this is just more difficult/costly to handle compared to choosing between two part types.

You people wear me out.

Here's some Moire from a scanned film shot just so you all can obsess over it:

While we all await more sample images, here are a few more photos from the Pentax K-5 II / K-5 IIs debut events in Japan, from flickr user HAMACHI. These were taken on 6 October:

This was one of the focus targets in the 'dark area':

That is cruel and unnecessary punishment. I for one would like to know what that K-5ll did to deserve this.
That is banned in my country. Barbaric.
