Capable tool with K-5 guts with easy video and fun focus peaking. If one had a chance to handle K-01, "like a plastic toy" verdict is VERY laughable. Have it in silver, like it & will keep it.

RStyga: Stability improvements.. bug fixes. Apparently the contrast adjustment is secondary, although some users might find it important if shooting in strong daylight.

neo_nights: Wow! The K5-IIs is the new High ISO king for APS-C cameras! Impressive, indeed!

Ditto for ISO 6400 RAW on Martini. (Easily removable in PP) moire by Mickey - yes. Even N D7000 has some. However, destructive NR of Fuji kills substantially detail on my LG monitor. BTW, I own K-5 IIs and "loving" (it's a tool) it...

Sorry, the K-5 IIs is well sharper with much more detail than Fuji X-Pro1. Therefore still KING. Please try RAW 200 (Fuji doesn't do ISO 100) Martini seals.

Rule 34: I own a Pentax K7. Considering Pentax only makes one f2.8 SDM at this range that costs $1500 or so and has far worse distortion characteristics than the sigma which is ~$800 cheaper I can still see the benefit for that system at least. I could care less about lens based stabilization systems, half the reason for buying a Pentax was to avoid needing that in a lens. I agree that they should drop the price a bit for the non-OS version though, the hardware can't be free.

I would sell you DA*16-50 for $1,500 if you want, but the rest of us can get it new for $849.95 from Amazon or B&H.

Regretfully, Sigma remains on my "don't touch this" list for good, hence the annoying QC as Lupti points out...
