Sony A580 vs Pentax K-5?
Apr 22, 2014

Hi everyone, I'm a graphic designer and I delved into digital photography about 2 years ago. I'm currently shooting with a Sony A290. Didn't want to spend too much at first until I knew if I would really get into this.

I'm totally hooked.

So, I'm looking to upgrade my camera, and I'm deciding between the Sony A580 and the Pentax K-5. I primarily shoot landscapes and people, but not sporting events. I have done a few corporate photo shoots for my clients through my design work, but all static images, like product shots. I want to go to the slightly next level, without breaking the bank. I should add I invested in a Tamron 18-270 lens last year, so I'm leaning toward the Sony to keep the lens. However, I'd rather take the hit NOW, then continue to invest in a brand only to decide to scrap the whole thing down the road.

Thoughts? Thanks in advance!!!
