Hello again Darren (or any other Pentax user),

I've noticed that even with a Sandisk Extreme 32GB (80MB/s of speed) the camera still needs a few seconds (more than what I suppose to be the normal IMHO) to save the pictures.

I have not done tests, but it is my impression that the K-5 is slower at saving pictures than were previous Pentax DSLRs that I have used. I don't know why.


Don't forget that the OP is asking about the K5II (or "s"), and that cam brings a whole raft of improvements over the original K5, which is the model you seem to be referring to (correct me if I'm wrong). So what might apply to the K5 in terms of picture saving speed may not apply to the subsequent K5II ...

Hi britcam,

I own the K5 model from 2010 (not the K5-II).

Kind regards,


Oh sorry, I was looking at the thread title: Pentax K-5 II or Nikon D7100

- so I thought you were looking at that choice
