lol those aren't cookies yet!
But the camera really captures the texture and details of the dough. Makes it look like I could just reach in and grab some

I have just been goofing around the house with old manual lenses and this camera is an absolute riot.

So much fun to use.

Any specific reason why you feel the k-5II is so good with the manual lens? What was your previous camera?

Haha.. Previous Camera is a truckload of Film cameras.

From 6x6 bellow folders to Nikon F's.

But back to your question. I Find the K-5 IIs Very easy to use in full manual mode and at least for me a very good Ergonomical fit.
A really easy camera to just have on you at all times. With small primes that is.

Thanks for your response, I do enjoy holding the k-5 (don't have one yet, tried it in store) and will be getting the k-5IIs in spring. I was more curious because I know it's kinda tough using manual lenses on my k-x, even though it can be fun.

I never used a K-x, But I find the K-5 IIs an absolute natural for manual shooting with manual focus lenses.

But hey, Thats just me.
