The PentaxK-5 II Digital SLR Camera Kit with 50mm f/1.8 Lens from B&H combines the high-performance K-5 II with a 50mm f/1.8 lens for sharp, fast, all-purpose shooting and a $75 B&H Gift card to spend on your next purchase.
The K-5 II Digital SLR Camera is a top-of-the-line APS-C DSLR camera. It offers a 16.3MP CMOS sensor with integrated Analog/Digital conversion circuitry for high resolution photos and video and an advanced 11 point SAFOX X autofocus system. The ISO sensitivity ranges from 100-12800 in normal setting and is expandable from 80-51200. Combine this with the Pentax body-based Shake Reduction stabilization system and you have a camera that performs well in low light situations and when shooting telephoto. Exposure metering is provided by the Pentax 77-segment metering system and the K-5 II offers shutter speed as fast as 1/8000 second and 7 fps of continuous shooting. Both auto exposure and full manual control are provided.
Full HD 1080p video capture is supported and stereo sound recording is available via the built-in microphones or through external microphones. For playback and composition, the K-5 II has an air-gap-free, scratch resistant 3.0" LCD with 921,000 dots of resolution. A pentaprism viewfinder with 100% field of view is also available.
While the Pentax K-5 II is a user-friendly camera accessible to all, it is particularly ideal for shooters who work in extreme conditions. A durable magnesium alloy cover surrounds a stainless steel chassis and the body is fully weather sealed with 77 protection seals throughout the body. It is cold proof to 14º F (-10°C) and has been tested to 100,000 shutter releases.
The smc DA 50mm f/1.8 Lens with its fast maximum aperture is effective in low light and ideal for shallow depth of field imaging. On APS-C size sensors it offers the 35mm focal length equivalency of 76.5mm and, like the K-5 II, it can stand up to moisture and dust with its SP (Super Protect) lens coating.
