My K5 seems sharp enough!
2

How important is it to have a camera that is sharper than the K5?

I found a like new Helios 44-2 lens on ebay and tried it out today.  These were shot at F16

Pentax K-5

Very nice images! I agree that sharpness is not everything.

Re: My K5 seems sharp enough!

I am inclined to agree with you.  When B&H had  K-5IIs for $699 I bought one and returned it.  Fine DSLR but I could not see hardly any difference on tripod shots using the same lens (FA 31mm) and settings on both the K-5 and the K-5iis.  Took over 50 images under the above conditions.

May try a K-3 later in the year,
