PentaxPentax K-5 IIs SLR camera : Pentax Ricoh announce the introduction of its Pentax K-5 IIs flagship digital SLR camera, designed to advance the company’s well-received K-5 camera, which launched in October 2010. This new dustproof, weather-resistant and cold-resistant SLR camera includes a newly developed SAFOX X AF sensor that delivers the broadest autofocusing EV range (-3 EV to +18 EV) in its class. In addition, the Pentax K-5 IIs is offered without an anti-aliasing filter, making it the perfect solution for photographers who practice commercial and studio photography where camera settings, lens selection, lighting, and other shooting conditions are controlled.

Pentax K-5 IIs lacks an anti-aliasing filter
The Pentax K-5 IIs is offered without an anti-aliasing filter, which is commonly found in many DSLRs to smooth computer generated imagery by decreasing high frequencies and distortion, but adversely reduces detail resolution. Without this filter, the Pentax K5 IIs creates deeply rich, detailed imagery at supreme resolution levels.

The exterior casing of the Pentax K-5 IIs is made of sturdy and lightweight magnesium alloy, while its chassis is made of highly rigid stainless steel. With 77 special seals in its body, the new and professional Pentax K5 IIs camera offers a dustproof, weather-resistant and cold-resistant construction, assuring reliable operation at temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C). The Pentax K-5 IIs also features a dependable shutter unit for a top shutter speed of 1/8000 per second, and the ability to withstand as many as 100,000 shutter releases.
