K-5 in depth score vs. 7D
Dec 20, 2010

If we compare the K5 profile with the profile of the Eos 7D (the one APS-C that presently outscores the K-5 innit?) we find that where the Canon really blows the K-5 out of the water is in the category value. And this although both models are presently the same price and Pentax is equal or better than the Canon in nearly every other category except (remarkably) ergonomics (!) and build quality (!!!). I just wonder how they define value. In principle it is the relation between price and quality... Wouldn't it simply be fair to just say what the camera costs? In any case great great job by the Pentax engineers - well done guys! Sometimes I secretly hope for my K10D to pass away in peace so I can justify getting the K-5. But Pentax also did a very good job back then.
