Think of buying a

Pentax Objektiv SMC-DA 17-70mm, F4.0 AL (IF) SDM
or
OM-D E-M5.

  • I am a jpeg shooter and Olympus colors are just lovely.

How about shooting JPEGs with the K-5???

while im actually a bit attracted to the E-M5, i wouldnt base my buy on its jpeg colors. one of the biggest strengths of this camera is its iso performance, and when u get to 3200, colors do funny things. as u can see in the link, at 6400 noise lvls are very good, but the blue is actually green. the raw file directly beneath it shows the real blue it is supposed to be.

i just imagine taking a pic of a BIF and getting a horrible green sky instead of nice blue. the raws however look great, if just a bit washed out but thats part of being m43.
