Not Uncommon - Just Unspoken
In reply to Tom__Brown, May 3, 2012

I'd say the vast majority of K-5 owners have been impressed with their camera - owning two of them I know I have; not only in comparison to other brands, but to previous Pentax DSLRs. The body of the K-7 was half of the step-up from the K20D, the improved shutter, sensor, and electronics/processing made the K-5 a very successful release from Pentax. It's the Limited body to go with the Limited lenses.

That being said - what you see on this forum, primarily, is complaining/speculating/misinformation; you've really got to sift through the junk because someone who has a problem with a product/system is going to be much more vocal than someone who loves their camera and is out shooting. You aren't alone in enjoying your gear - I love Pentax glass and even when people get mad when I post shots with it, I don't care. Keep on posting.

A lot of people, myself included, take their direction from forum feedback. That's a shame because the forums aren't giving the K5 fair treatment, in my opinion.

.... just one guy's perspective.
