Despite having only ever used one for a few minutes, I’m a fan of the K-5. It’s a solid-feeling camera, and it’s got a lens selection going back decades. And with Pentax, if you don’t like the look of the camera, wait a few months and they’ll put out one with a new paint job. This month, it’s silver!
The camera itself is the same, and the price is the same at $1700 for body-only. It really is just a paint job.
The lenses are the same, too. Now you can get the…
- 21mm F/3.2 AL
- 40mm F/2.8
- 70mm F/2.4
Does your next project involve werewolves? This might be a good investment, even if it’s just paint. The werewolves don’t want to take the risk, really.
