Re: D7100 or K-5IIs

All of the K-5s attributes as written before are correct.  However there are a few draw backs.

As earlier stated there are only 9 cross points.

Very limited third party involvement.

If you have any video interest (besides the PAL folk) look elsewhere.  Honestly, only HD at 25fps?

Lastly, you have written about this before.  It's time to put on your big boy pants.  Order a K-5IIs and a D7100 at the same time.  Play with them a lot for about three weeks without injury and return the loser.  Most online retailers (Adorama) will do full refund.

This is why I have a K-5 and not a D7000.  As another stated  - feels like a plastic brick.

Good luck!

BTW make sure you include the kit lens with your order.
