Re: Is upgrade from K-7 to K-5 ii worth it?

Thanks for the prompt and helpful reply, Gerry. I guess my main area of reservation about the K-7 is that the higher ISO performance isn't up to the standard reached by many modern cameras. I've decided I really don't like carting a tripod around, but I have a reasonably steady hand. I don't like pushing the K-7 beyond about 400, and it seems like the K5 ii is good up to 1600. So maybe I've answered my own question..

I'd also like an improvement in low light focusing, and it sounds like I'd get that. But is there more?
