Anyone here using the Pentax K5IIs or K5/K5II?

We have them in the office here for testing. So far my impressions are very favorable. They're really just the K-5 with a) better low-light/artificial-light AF (much better), and b) no AA filter (on the IIs). Not much else to say about them.

Had my K-5 IIs since the day it was released to replace my much-loved K-5.

Fantastic camera.

Which lenses are your favorites for it?

The DXO mark results look good. The removal of the anti-aliasing filter in the s version, ergonomics, 100% viewfinder and weather sealing have me interested.

I've had my K-5IIs for a few weeks and about 1,400 frames, replacing the K-5 I've had for a couple years. The AF is much improved, now capable of focusing at midnight in a coal mine, more or less.

What most interested me was the removal of the AA filter. And, yes, it's deadly sharp now, though as with that other new AA-less body, you really have to use good lenses and, especially, technique to see the difference. I make 20x30 landscape prints, and the difference shows.

I sold a lot of lenses of last year, Limited's & DA*'s mostly. I now use the lenses with my IIs, two Zeiss ZK's, the 50km MP and the 25mm Distagon, those with the 100mm WR have me in lens nirvana with that camera.
