Pentax K-5 Digital SLR Camera Body, Black {16.3 M/P} Description

Details

The Pentax K-5 is a weather resistant K-mount DLSR with a sensor shifting Shake Reduction system coupled to it's high quality APS-C sized CMOS.  Since the K-5 uses K-Mount lenses it provides easy access to a huge variety of unique and vintage optics, and the in body Image Stabilization helps preserve sharpness with any lens.

The Pentax K-5 delivers high-resolution, low-noise, true to life image reproduction with the CMOS sensor coupled with the Prime II Imaging Processor.  The K-5 has a wide sensitivity range up to ISO 12,800 (expandable to 51,200) and has stunning noise management.  The K-5 makes it easy to line up shots with it's bright pentaprism, 11 point SAFOX IX+ phase detection AF system, live view shooting, and three different grid patterns that assist image composition.  When you press the shutter release the K-5 doesn't disappoint with it's 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, 7fps continuous shooting, Full HD recording at 25fps, and great options for adding visual effects during shooting.  A durable magnesium alloy body and 77 seals protect the K-5's components while they render remarkable images. 

The K-5 was originally introduced in 2010 as the effective replacement for the similarly constructed Pentax K-7.  In 2012 Pentax released the K-5 II (a nearly identical model aside from new LCD screen and a faster AF sensor) and the K-5 IIS (identical to the K-5II except no low pass filter so it captures more fine detail).

Go ahead and feed your photography obsession with the PENTAX K-5. For you, capturing that great shot isn't a casual interest. It's a part of your life. One spectacular image after another. This camera is the perfect piece of equipment to help you get your photo fix. With the compact, rugged K-5, the world is truly your studio.
