rusticus: sorry - I think you do not need the K-5 II or the K-5IIs if you own the K-5:
Differences are splitting hairs, not otherwise

D1N0: K5IIs is the sharpest aps-c dslr sadly it's not suited for photographing stamps and bank notes.

@TrojMacReady

I'm no expert, but expect you are correct, but thankfully pentax is offering something different. I'd like the high ISO performance of the pentax, but with 24 MP. If I have to chose one I'd prefer the low light option. I'll wait and see how the Nikon 5200 does, and I'm also considering the 5D mk2. It's a great time to be a photographer.

PS. I do agree with you sentiment, there are many times when moire can be a factor, particularly hair and fabrics, but for me these are unlikely to be an issue.

colesf: The k5IIs has pretty crappy moire. What's curious is that the Canon 5D mk ii and iii both have it just as bad.

Seems that resolution may be a significant factor, the D800E doesn't suffer from moire where the K5IIs and 5D Mk2 (and MK3) do on the studio scene.

I'm considering both of them for a future purchae and found exactly the same. It doesn't help me decide, but it does make me realise moire won't be a factor in my decision.
