Pentax K-1 II

 

A very minor update, but still a fine DSLR. Pentax K-1 II.

Huge degree of external control ; Excellent rugged, weather-sealed build quality ; Superb image quality, with high resolution and dynamic range ; In-body stabilisation gives sharper images with almost any lens ; Compatible with vast range of new and...

Heavy and bulky body ; Slow wake-up from auto power-off ; Screen isn’t touch-sensitive ; Sluggish live view autofocus

For anyone who has a suitable collection of K-mount lenses and wants to make the step up from APS-C to full-frame, the Pentax K-1 Mark II is very easy to recommend. But I don’t think it’s worth upgrading from the original K-1; there’s too little extra...

Pentax K-1 Mark II

 

The Pentax K-1 Mark II camera is a very minor update to the original K-1, but is a fine entry point for Pentax owners looking to step up to full-frame.

Proven 36MP full-frame image sensor. High resolution Pixel Shift capture. 5-axis stabilization. Weather-sealed. Attractive price. GPS and Wi-Fi.

Slow, inconsistent autofocus. Outdated video toolset. Slower (4.4fps) burst shooting. Omits UHS-II SD support. Dwindling third-party lens support.

Bottom Line: The Pentax K-1 Mark II camera is a very minor update to the original K-1, but is a fine entry point for Pentax owners looking to step up to full-frame.

Pentax K-1 Mark II full-frame DSLR goes native to ISO 819200

 

There are only two updates to Pentax's flagship DSLR, but they're potentially impressive.

Pentax K-1 Mark II Review

 

We review the new 36mp Pentax K-1 Mark II - the update to the full-frame K-1 - is the new model worth the upgrade?

When the K-1 first came out, it offered a high-resolution sensor at a competitive price, with a number of unique features. Whilst the K-1 Mark II still offers the same 36mp sensor, and keeps the same unique features, the market has moved on, with the...

Pentax K-1 II

 

En robust kamera med fin bildkvalitet. Autofokusen är inte speciellt snabb.

En värdig toppmodell för alla Pentax-fantaster. Bildkvaliteten är fin, och kameran har många användbara funktioner, så länge du inte ska fota action.
