Re: E-5 vs K-5 ii
In reply to DaveP E1, Feb 20, 2013

I have to disagree with the people saying going Pentax K-5 ii wouldn't be much different. If we're talking AF system, I would agree. However, the sensor of the K-5 is a significant improvement over the E-5. Don't get me wrong, I love my E-5 and E-3, but going Pentax is a leap forward if dynamic range is his main concern.

If gear weight and attention are also of concern, I would say go OMD which appears to not be far behind the K-5 imo, however the K-5 does have significant DR at iso80 (if that matters to you) while the OMD lowest iso (to my knowledge) is 200.

Either way, whether or stick with the E-5, buy an OMD or go for the K-5 ii, I'm sure you will enjoy your shooting.
