Pentax please keep k5 body design in k3!
Feb 5, 2012

The k5 body is great, the only physical addition it needs is a dedicated (or assignable) video record button.

Keep the same body and control layout, add a video button that can instantly record video from any camera mode while retaining that modes exposure settings.

Upgrade sensor, processor, improve sensitivity and dynamic range, add full manual control in video, add effective focus peaking and a liveview mode that keeps the mirror raised fulltime, raise sync speed.

If you can squeeze full frame into a k5 body do it!

I am wholly satisfied with the body design of the k7/k5, please retain it for the next few dslr generations of semi-pro pentax body, at least until their is a compelling design reason to change

Pentax K-5 Pentax K-7
