Re: K5II is not an upgrade for K5

It's just one more flavour. Extra sugar and chocolate topping on the same cake. We all know that all too well, and still want the K5-II to be something it really isn't. And it isn't. Pentax didn't do anything to warrant serious attention.

I had a K-5 (and a K-7 before that) and bought a K-5IIs. (The K-5 is now my back-up camera).

The K-5IIs warranted my serious attention! And I don't regret the purchase.
