Chasseur d'Images K5-2 & K5-2s (& Q10) reviews
Dec 19, 2012


French photo magazine "Chasseur d'Images" have published a 8 pages test about K5-2 & K5-2s.

The test is very positive, the camera get the maximum rating, 5/5 (like the K-5)

  • There is a "sub-rating", here it is :
  • verstatility : 5/5
  • Action shot : 5/5
  • Landscape : 5/5
  • Studio : 5/5
  • Low light : 5/5

they have noticed a visible gain of details with the 2s.

Accorded to the tester, there is only one minor complaint : the camera deserves a better AF cover and more AF points, but no complaint about the Af speed & precision which are excellent.

When you read the article, you feel than the "test guy", Ronan Loaƫc, really enjoyed to use that camera. He likes the way Pentax improves the K5, he makes some statements about the feeling of quality, the design & ergonomic made for photographers, etc..

BTW, did you know why Pentax can build 100% viewfinder for less money than Canikon ? The alignment of the sensor and the prism is a lot more easy with the pentax SR system, which didn't need a expensive calibration like systems with a stationary sensor.

The Q10 review is pretty positive too. Last year, Q's review made a 2/5. The Q10 make 4/5. The tester agree than the image quality suffer a little from the small sensor size, but he enjoys to use the camera. I will not develop that article, you already know the goods and the bads of that tiny camera.
