5 out of 5 stars   A GREAT PRODUCT FROM A GREAT SELLER
By Gusthedog (Scottsville, VA) July 02, 2012
Review submitted for Pentax K-5 Weatherproof 16.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 18-55mm WR Kit w/ 1080p HD Video (PKK51855)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: High ISO Performance, Good Image Quality, Quiet, Good Image Stabilization, Easy To Use
Cons:
Other Comments: As an owner of a Nikon D300S, a Canon 7D and various earlier Pentaxes (K20D and K-7) - I can tell you that the K-5 is capable of playing in the big leagues!! The ISO performance and image quality is superb, the handling and ergonomics are great. It is not quite as fast as Nikon when focusing in very low light, but in real life I don't encounter that very often (if you work in low light night club atmospheres, it could be an issue). It's capability to use all of the legacy lenses is also a big plus - many are very nice!! Last, but not least, BUYDIG has a great deal and fast delivery - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

By John (Chapel Hill, NC) July 19, 2011
Review submitted for Pentax K-5 Weatherproof 16.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 18-55mm WR Kit w/ 1080p HD Video (PKK51855)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Use, High ISO Performance, Good Image Stabilization, Fast Shutter Speed, Quiet, Good Image Quality
Cons:
Other Comments: Very pleased based on usage to this point. Upgraded from K10. Much lighter and easier to handle than K10. Auto focus and image sharpness much improved. I do a lot of exposure fusion using bracketed exposures. Camera a little slow in processing multiple frames shot in short amount of time, but much better than K10.

5 out of 5 stars   Professional, Limitless Camera
By Outdoors (Shady Spring, WV) July 03, 2011
Review submitted for Pentax K-5 Weatherproof 16.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 18-55mm WR Kit w/ 1080p HD Video (PKK51855)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Fast Shutter Speed, Quiet, Good Image Quality, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, High ISO Performance
Cons:
Other Comments: Truly amazing professional grade DSLR. Shoot a raccoon in a tree on a dark night, with the camera hand-held & using the built-in flash. Only had to hold a MiniMag flashlight under the lens barrel to find the critter and assist the autofocus in locking on him. Good feel, weight & balance. The creative possibilities with the K-5 are infinite.
