Re: K511s sharpness.

I've just upgraded my K5 to K5iis and have no regret. It's noticeable sharper. Of course you can always sharpen your file in PP but sharpening adds noise. I shoot raw and my sharpening for K5 was 50 1.0 50. With iis, now I can just leave it to default of 25 1.0 25 and I can see more details.

K5iis is not just sharper, overall is a better camera. I also loved my K5 but its AF sometimes let me down. The AF of iis is quicker and importantly more accurate. And you can focus in the dark. Also there is no need to do any fine focus adjustment on any of my Pentax lenses, so the back focus issue of K5 has gone, at least to my 4 lenses.

I also find iis is a bit refine, gone is the jammed SD card slot.

So overall I'm very happy about the upgrade.
