use case for K-5
Jun 16, 2012

Given the different pro and cons of these two camera, if you have both K-5 and 5D2, what would you use each for and what sort of lens (and other accessories) would you get for each to support the use case of each.

Would really appreciate advise from the more experienced pentax shooter.

I am thinking 5D2 with wide angle lens for landscape.

K-5, with longer lenses for wildlife or sports.

I love macro too, and have 580exII and 100L for 5D2, but been thinking of getting either Tamron 90mm or kiron 105 for pentax.

Don't want to have too many duplicate, trying to optimise for the pro of each.
