K-5 II

Rating: 4.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 54.5 out of 5

Lowest Price: £648.00

This new model is designed to be the successor to the PENTAX K-5 (launched in October 2010), which has been very well received for its compact, solid, functional body and high-quality image reproduction.



The K-5 II boasts a range of advanced functions and user-friendly features. These include a newly developed AF sensor assuring a broader AF working EV range, which lends itself well to a variety of shooting conditions and photographic requirements.



Launched in conjunction with the PENTAX K-5 II is the PENTAX K-5 II s, which is available without an anti-aliasing filter. The K-5 II s is perfect for photographers who value image resolution above all other factors and fully understand the function and characteristics of an anti-aliasing filter.
