Luminous Landscape: A Little Love for Pentax K-5IIs

I've enjoyed Luminous Landscape Photokina 2012 daily updates.

They gave a shout out to Pentax on the final day:


Oh, god, poor Pentax. They invented the SLR, though you would never know it. Their cameras have always been excellent. Their lenses have always been excellent. Their marketing? Face-palm! Pentax had but a fraction of the physical presence of the other major makers, and nothing to push their innovative products. The foremost of these is the K-5IIs, which, hugely, looses the dreaded Anti-aliasing filter. This is the first APS-C sized camera to take that brave step, following in the D800E’s lead. This is potentially a big deal, but I could barely get anyone to even explain it to me. Ugh.

I do, however, hope to have Pentax’s superb western Canadian rep, Bill Gouge, get me one to test, because landscape photographers should be seriously interested in this camera. If they ever hear of it."

Photokina 2012

I see K-5IIs "October 15th" market arrival date is not that far off.

So why is this posted in the non-Pentax section?
