The Pentax K-5II is the company's flagship camera with 16.3-megapixels on an APS-C sensor. It is lightweight and has very good image quality, but lacks AF in video mode.
The Pentax K-5II is the current flagship of the Pentax DSLR lineup, superseding the K-5 which remains on Pentax's website as of this writing (late February). But unlike the K-5, the K-5II is also available as a K-5IIs variant which dispenses with the camera's anti-aliasing filter -- a la the Nikon D800E. Pentax acknowledges that the K-5IIs is intended for a limited and specialized clientele, primarily "...for photographers who practice commercial and studio photography where camera settings, lens selection, lighting, and other shooting conditions are controlled." The rest of us would be better served with the K-5II, a praiseworthy challenger to both Nikon and Canon.
