It's just one more flavour. Extra sugar and chocolate topping on the same cake. We all know that all too well, and still want the K5-II to be something it really isn't. And it isn't. Pentax didn't do anything to warrant serious attention.

I had a K-5 (and a K-7 before that) and bought a K-5IIs. (The K-5 is now my back-up camera).

The K-5IIs warranted my serious attention! And I don't regret the purchase.
