Pentax K-1 II Preliminary Specifications
Improved image quality and high ISO performance
By PF Staff in Pentax Rumors on Feb 14, 2018
Japanese rumor site Digicame Info has just leaked what appear to be credible specifictions for the Pentax K-1 II- an upcoming replacement for the Pentax K-1, slated to become Pentax's second fully frame DSLR to hit the market.
Based on the specifications below, it appears that the K-1 II will inherit the exceptional high-ISO performance we saw thanks to the image accellerator unit that originally debuted in the Pentax KP and K-70. This should help the K-1 II deliver clearer files than any other full frame in its class. Thanks to the addition of this hardware, the maximum ISO of the K-1 II is also being increased by 2 stops to ISO 819,200.
However, the K-1 II will otherwise be identical to the original K-1. There appear to be no changes to the autofocus system or other core functions.
Of course, these preliminary leaked specifications are unconfirmed and subject to change. The K-1 II may have additional new software or hardware features not covered here.
We expect the K-1 II to make its official debut in the coming weeks. We will be covering the news live from the CP+ show in Japan in early March.
