Ricoh Pentax K-5 II DSLR Body Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

 

Ricoh Pentax K 5 II DSLR is robust and a hefty imaging device which made strong by weather-sealing. The camera can even work in temperature conditions below 14 degrees. With 4 stops of shake reduction due the body integral image stabilization offer you blur-free images. The shutter speed can range from 30 seconds to 1/8000 of one second. This camera is compatible with all the Pentax lenses made till yet. There is 11 point AF system offered with 9 cross-type sensors and 100% coverage. Video can be captured in Full HD resolution and there is a 3 inches wide LCD monitor. The imaging engine is PRIME II and sensor is an APSC sized CMOS type with 16.3MP. The camera also offers auto level compensation and fine-adjustment controls for image composition. There are 18 in-built digital filters and nine custom image modes. For memory, K5 II can accept SD/SDHC/SDXC cards.

Design and Build Quality

 

Ricoh Pentax K 5 II DSLR has typical body of that of any other modern DSLR. Dimensions are 5.2 x 3.8 x 2.9 inches and weight. These dimensions place this DSLR at the lower end of DSLR size scale. The camera is based on magnesium alloy exterior panels. The frame is stainless steel. The fit and finish against the given price is apt. quality of battery and charger is too, high. Switching on and off the camera doesn't take much time. The lens works arent clumsy. The doors and ports are sealed to avoid dust and moisture. Controls are well situated and comfortable. The camera is compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC cards. Pentax K 5 II is tough, rugged and solid DSLR that packs all the features usually expected from a pro DSLR.

Focus and Face Detection

 

Ricoh Pentax K 5 II DSLR comes with 11 point AF system that feautres 9 cross-type sensors, the viewfinder offers 100% coverage. This AF system is a new one with SAFOX X AF sensor. This AF sensor includes an updated AF algorithm and a select area expansion feature, this helps in tracking the subject when deviate from a particular point in frame space, aided with data from other sensors. Focusing is infact faster and whats good is that focus can be achieved in darkness too, even when the subject is dark itself. In Live View mode focusing speed could have had an improvement.

Lens and Image Stabilization

 

Ricoh Pentax K 5 II DSLR comes as a body piece only and also as with SMC Pentax-DA 15-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 AL WR lens. The lens comes well built with high quality plastics and weather resistant with water proofing at its best. The lens delivers clean, color rich and flare free pictures. At wide-angles there is barrel distortion usually observed. At telephoto end you notice pincushion distortion. To handle this, Pentax has provided in-camera distortion correction for the same. Sad point is time-consumption when you use distortion correction. Purple or green fringing is also well handled by the lens and appears in rare conditions.

Zooming power and smoothness of use of lens is excellent. Flare resistance too is good. The lenses do not comes with image stabilization feature. Body integral shake reduction(SR) is compatible with any lens added. This mechanism helps to deliver blur-free images and also cuts cost on lenses.

There is one more LCD at the top of the camera body, that display significant settings for shooting. Menu system is logical and intuitive. It is easy to use. The display of menu on screen is comprehensive. The system is typical match of a high-end DSLR here. Settings are infact extensive but selecting choices is fairly easy. There are four menus; record menu with 4 pages, playback menu with 1 page, setup menu with 4 pages and same number of pages in custom menu. The menu button first opens up on record menu, from there you can vertically scroll for other items, if you scroll horizontally, you get to handle other menus.
