HDR?

It can be done in some cameras, but mostly post processing. It stands for high dynamic range. It can be accomplished with one picture, but it works better if you have 3 to 5 to work with in layers.

The K-5 has so many features in a smaller body. I do construction documentation and I don't need full resolution most of the time. When I'm not needing more than 16MP I'm missing my K-5.

I got my D800 about a month ago and I love it. I have the 24-70mm f2.8 and the 70-200mm f2.8. I had the K-5 and all of the DA* lenses. Here's what I found.
The D800 is almost perfect IMHO, but it is a bit bigger and heavier (see picture). After getting the D800, I sold off the pentax gear because I couldn't afford 2 systems.
I realized that the K-5 was a great camera. The many features I like about the D800 were on the K-5. The conclusion:

If you don't need the full frame, super high resolution, stick with the K-5. It's a great camera.

Wow!
I know this is an old post, but Wow! I wonder how many of these lenses are still out there in useable condition. I also wonder how many were made by Pentax.

I guess it depends on who's life you're talking about. If you're talking about the dealership's life, well it's right on the money.

Yea, that's my point. The price dropped fast. I'm hoping that it IS something on the horizon.

I guess I was really wanting to know wether Pentax is planning to come out with an upgrade to the K-5 any time soon. The price drops I've seen "could" point to that. Maybe it's just wishful thinking. ( By the way, I LOVE my K-5. I don't need an upgrade, just want one. )

I noticed that I can buy a new K-5 body on E-bay for under $1,000 now. That is a huge price drop. Is Pentax being generous, or are they making room for another, newer model?
I love my K-5, and I am thinking about getting another one. But if they have something new coming out soon, I may just wait and see what it is. Anybody hear any rumors about any new products?

I like the DA*16-50mm so much that I bought two of them. I use this lens all the time. I got the second one just this week so I'll be ready for my second K-5.
