K5 review - still prefer Nikons auto ISO

So the K5 cant set the minimum shutterspeed before ISO change.

Instead it got "slow" or "fast" programming. From the review: "The Pentax K-5's automatic ISO functionality is amongst the most sophisticated available....

...Set to 'fast' the K-5's automatic ISO control aims to deliver shutter speeds significantly higher than are required simply for avoiding camera shake, so a minimum of 1/80sec at 18mm, and 1/400sec at 135mm."

1/400s at 135 and slower speeds at wider focal lengths is not good enough for action/sports.

For us who wants auto ISO with control of shutter speed and shot moving targets the Nikon way is still the best IMO.
