Ergonomics + Superb primes
In reply to Jake64, Mar 19, 2013

Some of the ergonomics features with the K-5 IIs that are big plusses for me:

  • In body image stabilization on all lenses
  • In body MLU with 2s delay
  • Excellent placement of ISO and exposure compensation controls
  • Locking mode dial
  • Easy access to drive mode
  • Very easy to change lenses
But the thing that put me over the top and brought about my switch from a Nikon D7000 were the superb Pentax Limited primes. In addition to being very light weight and weather sealed, these lenses have quite beautiful image quality and perform very well in all types of lighting conditions.
