Latest Review Posted Pentax K-1 II
This camera is closer to 10/10 than 9/10, but the cons were enough to not give it full marks.
The K-1 Mark II, like the K-1, is built solidly, performs adequately in most photographic settings, and expands the photographer's capability in low-light and dynamic range like never before. Now we have a camera that demands more from its lenses whereas previously lens imperfections were not as obviously identified.

The ergonomics of Pentax cameras are renowned. This camera carries on that legacy of an enthusiast photographer's tool to capture images in a wide variety of settings, with the need for fewer keystrokes and dial shifts to get the desired results from photograph to photograph. The user friendliness is so good, they have even gone overboard with the multiple methods of being able to adjust settings now with the function wheel and third e-dial.

The top LCD screen is clearly smaller than APS-C predecessors, however something had to give with the function wheel and third e-dial coming on board, and yet it still features all the relevant information desired on it. The back LCD is clear and attached on a very solidly built flexible mount that is unlikely to break in even the toughest applications. What it does do, however, is push the back edge of the camera further backwards such that the back of the camera is no longer flush with the battery grip. This to me is somewhat disconcerting, and I prefer the level alignment the K-5 had with its grip.

All lenses play nicely...
