There is a really nice feature in the Pentax K5 I have started to use a lot - Do you like that last jpg shot ? Then two pushes of a button and it's now saved as a RAW too !


Hi, Frogfish!

Thank you for your comments. This special K5-function seems to be a clever add-on. Pentax is really coming on strong with it's new K5. I had the K7 for 2 weeks on trial once, and was not convinced by its noise-level and high-Iso capability, but I have read a lot of good things about the K5.

You are right Walter - I have had the K7 for the past year and it's a superb camera ... let down only by it's high ISO ability - or lack of. Up to 800 is OK with PP NR and 1,600 at a push if you really really have no other option. Otherwise no criticism of the camera at all for my uses.

However the K5 smashes all those boundaries with very workable high ISO up to at least 6,400 and even 12,800 (I took some a few days ago - still processing, I'll post them in a few days, and I've seen workable shots taken at 25,600 too. Amazing the difference this makes.

Very nice. The perspective in the first is very painterly.

Thank you, Barberian - and this is exactly the reason I went there during night-time. I could set up my tripod in the middle of the steet -as in this shot - to get the composition I went for. Coul not do this in daytime, because of the traffic.

Thanks again - Best regards,
Walter
