Good deal on an excellent camera.

Super rad review for an "underdog" brand. Most people swear by Canon and Nikon. But this Pentax model has turned the table through so many outstanding features that those mainstream brands could not compete. DPReview gave this model high marks for the features in comparison with other brands/models in the same class.

To those who don't need motion picture as main purpose (why would you rely heavily on a dSLR, which is made for still photography in the first place?, for cinematography?) this SEMI-PRO PENTAX K-5 or K-5 IIS is the BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK. According to dpreview.com, this camera is the top dog for semi-pro photography, at least for 2012.

Pentax makes great cameras. Highly recommend. Tons of great reviews online that place this camera well ahead of many others.
