Pentax K-5 II

Jump to: navigation, search

The Pentax K-5 II and K-5 IIs are DSLRs introduced by Pentax Ricoh Imaging at Photokina 2012 [1]. The Pentax K-5 II features exactly the same magnesium-alloy, weather-sealed body as that of its predecessor, the K-5. The only changes included a new gapless LCD technology and the new SAFOX X autofocus module.

The K-5 IIs was mechanically the same as the K-5 II but removed the antialiasing filter for improved sharpness. Although both cameras use the same sensor as the older K-5, they performed better than the K-5 in Dxomark's sensor ratings. The sensors in the K-5 II provided better color depth and noise performance[2].
