K5 drops dramatically (839 euros including grip and bag), but more critics come out of the woods:

- The mechanics is not reliable: mirror locks up and you pay half of its price to repair it.

- The weather proof, so much advertised by some (paid) people around, is not true: dust and water gets inside the LCD screen. As a result a new screen is given to the KII/KIIs.

- The K5 takes fast "great" but blurred pics as the the focus is not good. Pentax replaces safox IX by safox X.

- There are a lot of available old lenses (M42) to use with it, but there is no adapter.

So, what next?

This is excellent news!  Now thanks to this troll many who don't have a clue will not buy so the price of the remaining stock will go down further and I can get a back up for even less money!

Of course those of us who have a K5 know better and realize that this post is a bunch of malarchy!
