Also included with the Pentax 16.3 MP camera is a shake reduction image stabilization system, making it possible to shoot at 2.5 to 4 shutter speeds slower without camera shaken images. For photographers traveling into rugged situations, the DSLR digital camera has 77 special seals to give a dustproof, weather-resistant, and cold-resistant camera, allowing reliable operation in harsher field conditions.

Excellent camera - I love it already!
I am very happy with my Pentax K5, it is a vast improvement on my K10D with video and far superior ISO settings. I bought it based on my budget and having read extensive reviews. Would have liked the K3 but I am very happy with this purchase.

Pentax K5 a brilliant camera, amazing quality,
I wanted a Pentax K5 for awhile after photographing a few weddings with my Nikon D40 and D100 and saw another wedding photographer with a Pentax K5 I saw a few of the pictures and was amazed.
The Pentax K5 has alot of settings to go through, when you compare the Pentax K5 to other cameras in its class: the K5 wins!
There are custom settings also, if you have multiple people using your camera, they can set up their own personal camera settings and save them.
Don't forget to show who took the photograph under copyright information you can personalize it with your name / email to embed on your photos
I took a few videos in HD w/o mic very good! No lag, watched on 1080p tv
Pictures in any megapixel look great, big difference you can't zoom in past certain points (on the computer) before they get grainy (not with 16mp) amazing qualityit lens da wr 18-55 is great, very fast focus - I found it great for eBay photography, car show, portraits, pets, nature, etc. if you need more range da wr 50-200 is a great follow up lens and affordable (great for close ups)
Takes pictures in low light without flash, shake reduction mode in movie and while taking pictures
I purchased the battery grip (as I always do for my cameras) the batteries last quite awhile longer with it and you and take pictures vertically.Read full review

Highly Recommanded, lots of fun to use, excellent build and photo quality !
This is my first SLR, but not the first photo camera.
After a thorough research including Nikon D7000 and Canon T2i, 60D, even Pentax K-x, K-r, I decided upon the Pentax K-5.
The feel of the camera is like being an extention of my hand. Even not light weighted, I can shoot photos with one hand easily.
Zillions of features, all logically groupped and the most important with dedicated, or programmable buttons out on the body.
The speed of this camera is amazing, being ready to shoot as soon as you turn it on, no delay.
I keep it actually on the ON status and leave the 1 min timer to turn it off automatically, no need to even bother turn the On/OFF switch anymore.
Photo quality is excellent, perhaps in the same class as D7000 and 60D, but i personally aggree more with the way Pentax deals with the Noise reduction vs. Sharpness/detail issues. However you can customaize the Noise reduction levels for every single ISO setting, any combination you like.
This camera will freak out even the most ferocious gadget freak ! It's really amazing the level of control Pentax allowed to the photographer.
In the same time though, anyone can set it up the way they want and use very fast procedures to shoot.
I personally shoot mostly in Manual mode, and it is so easy to turn the front and back wheels (Tv and Av settings), also selecting ISO and Exposure Bias from top dedicated buttons, that taking photos is lots of fun.
The body of this camera is hammer solid, really professional level. Added to it is the 70+ Weather Resistant seals against water and dust.
The packaged lens is the WR 18-55mm lens, which takes nice photos at any zoom and apperture levels. Of course the max and min zooms give some barrel distortion and abberation, but nothing out of ordinary, especially with the bargain price it has.
I cannot tell anything negative about this camera, I took photos with 3200 ISO at night on the streets and the noise levels are totally manageable. Practically one could use this camera with 1600 ISO at night and 6400 ISO in daylight and never see any noise in your photos. I even used the 51200 ISO for some fun shots in the dark, and it could be useful in case you need to catch something you would not otherwise.
The high speed shooting is out of ordinary, with 7 shots/sec, up to 20-something continuous shots. If you stop from time to time, between shots, it allows you to actually fill up the memory card with fast shooting photos. It took me around 10 min to take over 500 photos on the lakeshore, catching the waves and seagulls flying.
This camera is definetely Highly Recommanded !Read full review

На сегодняшний день одна из лучших зеркальных камер с размером датчика APS-C.
Все в ней круто , низкие шумы на высоких ISO, динамический диапазон, скорострельность, качественные яркие сочные фотографии, огромный набор настроек, эргономика! Наконец то привели в чувства автофокус! =)
Из минусов - после серии снимков нет возможности внести изменения параметров, приходится просто жать. Но это только если снимаешь сериями. =(
ИТОГО: Камера получилась очень хорошая! Если не лучшая! Но для проф применения имеются ограничения, надеюсь вскоре исправят. На момент написания версия прошивки 1.03.
