For K5 owners: does the AA model motivate you to upgrade and why?
Sep 21, 2012

I became a more recent owner of the K5 and now comes the AA-less IIs model. As I have been considering an additional lens, my math shows that I can sell off the K5 I have and buy the AA model for what I would have spent on another lens.

For those who know and have come to appreciate the strengths of Pentax and the K5, how, if at all, has the new model with no anti-aliasing filter motivated you, one way or the other, to upgrade to it?

For anyone who has looked at and/or read comparisons of cameras with sister models not having an AA filter, could the new AA-less K5 produce more resolution than the K5, and, if yes how much would you guestimate? I have seen K5 resolution measured in Pop Photo at 2600 lines, from Tiff files.

Lastly, how does the latest AA-less Fuji model, decently priced, impact your AA-less camera decision? Yeah, I know the Fuji is a rangerfinder style.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
