Okay I believe strongly in where Pentax K5 is headed. The coming K5 11s is definitely a great step forward but I have succumbed to the siren call of Fuji PRO 1. They have proven the filter removal can work and what is a photo if it cannot replicate the best possible resolution? Because of resolution and now the proven value without the filter as demonstrated with the Fuji PRO 1. I have bought in. Expensive indeed but wow. Not to say for the rugged, outdoor demanding environment stuff I would choose methinks the Pentax K5 11s and probably will.

We'll the Fuji has the "non-Bayer-array" sensor (cant remember what they call it) which apparently doesnt have the same issues with moire that the more traditional array layout in the K-5 IIs (potentially we hope it won't have but expect to in the wrong situation).

If the focussing with the new AF unit is reasonably better than the K-5  then I'll be looking at a K-5 II.

I'd consider the IIs  but I'd want to see a few more samples and some real world user reviews first. Those sample lanscape shots on the the other forum looked pretty impressive though.
