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.

A couple of monts ago, I upgraded from a K-5 to K-5 II (i.e. the regular one, not the S). I've used it with a few lenses now, and find that I need consistently less capture sharpening with the new body. I shoot in RAW with Lightroom.

Assuming that the sharpening scale in Lightoom hasn't changed, I can't explain it other than that AA filter on the II is perhaps weaker than the K-5. Wonder if anyone else can corroborate this?
