Nikon is indeed faster, but the K-5 has been proven just as, if not more   accurate .


K5 AF is every bit AF problematic as 7D, and the 'decent' lens choices are more limited

If "rubbish" is synonymous with "true," then yes, I agree with you. The D7000 is faster, there's not denying it.

well I just did, a number of Pentax lenses have been problematic without solution, and AF is NOT one of K5's strengths. Nikon OTOH has succeeded to displace other system manufacturers with its capability in AF

But to claim the D7000 is more accurate is just fanboyism -

I dont have any Nikon equipment, Im an Olympus Ex, Panasonic GH2 and Canon FF user. If that makes me a 'fanboy' then the standards need review. My statements are true and correct,
............................AF is not one of K5's strengths.

please deal with the facts instead of just discrediting legitimate first-hand research made by others with a one word dismissal.

who should care what you think ?
