I have no first hand experience with sony but I can offer a few theories. First the most obvious, is Pentax IS just better?

Number two, a heavier camera can make hand tremors less intrusive. The k5-II is 660g with no battery where the a65 is 543g.

Last guess, it is possible the extra weight could reduce internal vibrations resulting in a sharper image, but this is assuming you have tested it at different settings.

Just my best guesses, hopefully others can chime in.
