The X-5 is modeled very explicitly after the company’s K-5, and we can think of no better SLR to base a chassis on. Deep ergonomic grooves and extensive rubberization mean the X-5 handles like a dream. We dare say it’s the most comfortable ultrazoom on the market today. The same efficient button layout and high-quality dials found on Pentax DSLRs have transitioned to the X-5, making the camera feel very legit, even if the body is still made mostly of plastic.
