Pentax steps up and delivers a top-of-the-line APS-C camera--the K-5 Limited Edition Digital SLR Camera with SMC DA 40mm f/2.8 XS Lens (Silver), featuring a low-noise 16.3MP CMOS high resolution sensor, sensitivity up to a best-in-class ISO 51200, 7 frames-per-second shooting capability and a responsive, high-precision 11-point auto-focus system. This special Limited Edition also features an elegant silver finish, including the camera’s mode dial, control buttons and levers.

The included special edition SMC Pentax DS 40mm f/2.8 XS Lens provides a great all-around lens to start shooting from day one, in most situations. Aside from providing a 61mm (35mm equivalent) focal length, the pancake design makes the lens attractive and compact, capable of fitting in your bag without needing to be removed from the camera body. The f/2.8 aperture is ideal for low and existing light conditions and creative depth of field applications. The lens also features a SP coating that repels moisture, dirt, and dust, in addition to providing greater contrast and color to your images.

With the free firmware update to Version 1.01, the number of consecutive RAW and high ISO shots able to be captured in high speed mode before buffer slowdown has been improved from 8 frames to approximately 20 frames. A high performing PRIME II imaging engine produces rich-gradation, very high resolution digital images. Plus, full HD video at 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The K-5 makes advances in plenty of other areas as well, such as faster autofocusing speed, and an upgraded High Dynamic Range (HDR) function that can even be used without a tripod. A bright, clear 3" LCD display with 921,000 dots resolution makes it easy to compose and review your images, or use the bright viewfinder for composition, secure in the knowledge that the highly accurate 77-segment metering system will deliver the goods every time. Shake Reduction image stabilization makes it possible to shoot at 2.5 to 4 shutter speeds slower without seeing camera shake in your photos. A lens is not included.

And all of this photo goodness is packed into a body of sturdy, lightweight magnesium alloy on a chassis of stainless steel. The 77 special seals in the body give you a dustproof, weather-resistant and cold-resistant camera, for reliable operation in harsh conditions, at temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C). An extremely reliable shutter unit provides a top shutter speed of 1/8000 second and is tested to 100,000 shutter releases. A stellar performer.
