You loose class leading AF! The Nikon will out perform the K-5 IIs in almost every way.

Based on what ?? (words are cheap facts less easy to disprove )

d7100 = ev -2 - 19

k5ii = ev -3 - 18 <- CLASS LEADING !!!!!

Unless Nikon have changed their AF engine (which they haven't CAM 3500DX) then even the K5 will AF faster than the Nikon for linear targets.

The only place mid level Nikons outperform Pentax is for non linear target where the better algorithms and expanding AF point gave an advantage, The k5ii now has expanding AF point so the d7xxx only have their superior algorithms to maintain any advantage.

hardly 'almost every way' now is it ?
