| p.1 #12 · Pentax K-5 II ? anyone use these? |
Being in position now for a new DSLR, I never gave Pentax a thought. The last few days I have read as much as I could about the K-5 IIs and it does look very nice. I've owned m4/3 (OM-D), APS-C (7D, X-E1), FF (D700) in the past. I just came from a X-E1 and had sights set on 5D MK III, but would limit my budget to the point I would only be able to afford one lens. A used 5D MK II has also crossed my mind since they are so cheap now, but I worry the limited AF would have me soon looking for a replacement. I'm not totally set on FF as I loved my 7D when I owned it and don't feel the APS-C is all that bad for my shooting.
So, I am now having thoughts about a Pentax K-5IIs system, but I like to buy my stuff used most of the time and there just isn't any used ones out there. I'm left with paying $1300 for body alone. When you consider the used prices of a good 7D, I then wonder if the K-5IIs is that much better?
Hmmm. Theses types of decisions are never easy, but I must admit, we all look way too deep into all this most of the time and I'm sure we'd be happy with either system.
