Re: K-5 ii vs OMD - EM5 test at the camera store

The right choice - no doubt at all.  Well done!

K30 is a lovely cam. With its light weight, weak AA filter, WR, fantastic grip, and AA batteries, its unbeatable.

Pentax takes over from where Oly 4/3 left off - great ergonomics, best sensor, WR, strong road map ahead, and huge array of lenses, from legacy through to fast DA zooms. If you can take the tiny DA 15Ltd with you, then do. Wonderful little thing that at its FL beat my ZD 7-14 for IQ!

I was wedded to the my E3 & HG & SHG lenses for a long time, until I did side by side tests with a K5. Then the full Oly kit got sold. I now have the K30 & K-01, both at bargain prices, with the hope of getting a K5IIs or K3 in future years.
