What made you pick the D7000 over the Pentax K5?
Apr 15, 2012

I am between the K5 and the D7000. I will be taking shots of swing dancers in low light and outdoors sports photos like disc golfers. So I need a high performance system to focus and take quick shots.

I am assuming I want a Nikon 35mm f1.8g for the swing dancers and maybe some kind of sports lens like a Nikon 70-200vr1. I'm not sure what Pentax glass corresponds to those 2 lenses.

Was the K5 even a consideration for you guys? Why not?

It appears to have several advantages and disadvantages to each camera. I have some decision paralysis but I am at least down to 2 choices which I think are both very good.

Here's the Pentax fanboy thread which is similar to this one. My apologies for starting a duplicate thread but I wanted to catch some of you Nikon fanboys before I made a final decision.
