The Pentax K-5 IIs is the update to the popular Pentax K-5 based around a 16.3MP CMOS sensor with integrated Analog / Digital conversion circuitry. It differs from the K-5 II, in its Anti Aliasing filterless design delivers superior resolution and image sharpness. This increase in image quality does come at a cost, as the camera is more susceptible to moiré. However, if shooting in a controlled studio environment, you can better monitor this. The advanced 11-point SAFOX X autofocus system provides extremely accurate results with a very wide EV range for improved low light performance. Combined with its normal ISO range of 100-12,800 and in-camera Shake Reduction (4-stops), the K-5 IIs is a very strong choice for shooting in low light. Sports shooters will also appreciate its 7fps continuous mode and maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 sec.
The K-5 IIs offers Full HD video recording, up to 1080 / 25p in AVI format. It has a built-in stereo mix for quick, in-camera audio. However, for improved performance, there’s also a 3.5mm input for attaching external mics. While it’s not really optimized for extremely high-quality video, it’s plenty good for home movies or small-budget work.
The K-5 IIs offers a magnesium alloy shell around a stainless steel chassis, with Pentax’s well known 77 weather protection seals. The 100% optical viewfinder with 0.92X magnification provides a bright composition aid, and the large 3.0" 921K rear LCD feature an air-gap-free and scratch-resistant design. The camera has a standard pop-up flash (GN 13 @ ISO100) and traditional hot shoe, as well as PC sync input with maximum flash sync speed of 1/180 sec. The K-5 IIs shoots native Adobe DNG 14-bit RAW files in addition to Pentax’s proprietary PEF files and standard JPEG. Images and video are recorded to SDHC / XC memory cards, and the rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides about 980 shots per charge.
