The green auto function with a 50mm f1.8 setting will get pictures in almost any light, and with auto focus, not drive someone crazy while the camera tries it's best to find a good focusing point, after which point, the picture is lost. Our last Nikon had this problem and as a result my wife would not use it.
This camera is powerful, but IS also very simple to use. Here are the benefits as I see them:
- Wonderful color rendition. Looks like beautiful KodaColor slides from a medium format camera from a studio in the 70s.
- Great battery life. Almost 1000 pictures from one charge. Amazing!
- Low light natural shots with very fast accurate autofocus. Let's you gets shots you would miss with another camera.
- Fast auto shooting when needed (up to 7 frame per second)
- Doubles as a video camera for those family moments
- Huge range of lenses, including the Limited series. Uses all the Pentax lenses from my camera in the 70s.
- Relatively small for a high performance SLR
- Ideal for the aspiring amateur with a wife/husband who is technically challenged. (Hope my wife does not read this one!)
- It's still bigger than a point and shoot, but you get what you pay for
- At 16MP would probably be too low a resolution for all "professional" applications, but I can put more than 1000 pictures on a 32GB card
- Was advertised as a "metallic solid" feel device. Still feels very plastic like to me, but that's probably just a persona preference.
All in all a wonderful device, of which I hope to use for many years to come.
- No need for a flash. The camera will take good low light pictures.
Format that was used for video creates big files that quickly get to the 4G limit if recording in HD. I wish they had a firmware update to use the file compression used on the K-3 which is much smaller, so get more recording minutes in each file, usually up to the max 25 min barrier in HD.
Check firmware by holding menu button while turning camera on.
Enter the K-5II. I had many reviews and had asked people in other forums if they had found any significant differences between the K-5 and K-5II regarding autofocus in extreme low light. The responses I got pushed me over the edge so I thought I should give it a try.
Oh, man, does the K-5II deliver. Pentax built around the critically acclaimed K-5, giving it a better LCD screen, and most importantly, at least for me, amazing autofocus accuracy in low light. I shot more than 8000 photos in December, from different dance festivals, and all the shots I couldn't previously get with the K-5, the K-5II did. Mixed light, single spotlight, horizontal spotlights, all of very low intensity, the K-5II locked focus without a problem with little to no hunting. These events I shoot are essentially the same every year, with the same lights, and the previous two years the K-5 didn't help much in the low light scenes.
Other than predictive autofocus and accuracy everything is essentially the same. The autofocus speed is still great, I would say perfect for my needs. This is said by someone that shoots mostly ballet presentations.
