Pentax K5 vs X100?
Aug 26, 2011

So I have the X100. Love the quality of the images, the auto focus... not so much. Which brings me here. I have often thought of K5 and am tempted now to swap the X100 out for one. But I have a few questions for you Pentax users.

First, I'd like the option truly do manual focus on some nice prime lenses. Could someone please tell me their experience with the K5 in this regard?

Also, how is the AF in term of capturing a scene like a child running?

If I do decide to get the K5, I would like to get a nice 24mm lens for it if I can find one.

One last thing, if anyone has had a chance to play with both cameras, which IQ do you prefer and why?

Thanks again so much for your time.
