I have a lot of experience with Pentax 645D and Sony and Nikon and Canon. I have Never tried Pentax DSLR cameras or their lenses. I need; Excellent Skin tones out of the camera using AWB, ISO Max 1600 with No noise, Reliable AF and Easy to use Menu system. Zoom lens in the are of 24-105, 24-120 . Any suggestions and Images that you can share. Thank you
Either the K5II or K1 for bodies. Previous bodies had somewhat unreliable AF in studio situations and were noisy. The 24mp APS-C cameras are a bit noisy at 1600ISO. I don't have a problem with it, but it's still there. The K5II has a good noise free sensor and good AF, the K1 follows in the K5's footsteps this way. I've rarely had Pentax's AWB get fooled. I'm not a zoom lens user so I won't comment, but for primes, the 50mm lenses, particularly the DA* and D FA* versions are spectacular, and the 70mm and 77mm Limited lenses are pretty legendary as well.

Starting with K-5, you can use any DSLR from Pentax with fixed or zoomed light lenses, for wedding photography. /
For a portrait photo, you can use any DSLR of this brand and the cheapest manual lenses.
