Re: Ordering a new K-5 IIs

You say you shoot landscapes, but your widest FF lens is 40mm which is about 60mm on APS-C.  I'd strongly suggest something wider.  If pixel peeping and printing huge is not your primary intent, consider the K5II with the DA 18-135 WR kit.  Most owners think the 18-135 has pretty good IQ, it is weather sealed, and it offers a much more usable range than your current lenses.  For most purposes (screen sharing, 11x14 prints and smaller, movies), neither you nor anyone else will notice the difference between the K5II and the "s" version.
