Pentax K-5 excels at dynamic range (among other things)

DxO mark

The new K-5 is on par or better than current full frame sensors in quite a few aspects from a technical standpoint. The dynamic range of 14.12 Ev at ISO 80 specifically tops all other cameras, which is one technical value I personally feel is important in a picture taking tool. So overall, I’d say Pentax is making a good showing with this new camera body even though it’s APS-C sized. There are not any other APS-C cameras to come close to the K-5, but it will be interesting to see scores from the Nikon D7000, which I expect to be lower.
