The Pentax K-5 is their rugged, flagship APS-C DSLR that’s designed for semi-pro shooters. It features a 16.3MP CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 80-51200. It offers 7 fps continuous shooting that’s great for shooting sports / action, an 11-point AF system for fast, accurate focus, and a 77-segment metering system for precision exposure. The 100% FOV viewfinder with 0.92X magnification allows for a large, uninhibited view while shooting, with a bright 3.0" 921K rear LCD that’s great for image review.
Its magnesium alloy body with stainless steel chassis features 77 intricate weather seals, providing protection even in the worst conditions. To help provide sharp images, the K-5 houses an in-camera Shake Reduction image stabilizer, providing up to 4-stops of correction. It records high quality images in JPG, 14-bit PEF (Pentax RAW format), and Adobe DNG natively, as well as full 1080p/25fps HD video. It writes to any SDHC / XC memory card, and its lithium-ion battery allows for up to 980 images per charge.
