Latest Review Posted Pentax K-1 II
I can't believe there are so few reviews of the Mark 2. The improvements over the K-1 are not revolutionary but there are significant, incremental improvements. I bought the Mark 2 as soon as it came out but sold that copy a few months ago when I thought I needed smaller although I was otherwise very happy with it. I was wrong:o so I purchased the copy I have now. This may be at or near the pinnacle of DSLR development. The HD level video it provides is more than enough for my needs although some do believe they need 4K and advanced video functions so I suppose that is where the next Pentax FF will head. The images this camera produces are outstanding ( have also owned and used extensively the Sony A7RIII which is a wonderful camera with the most advanced FF sensor but it does not give more than the K-1 and Mark 2, at least in areas i value). Probably the most impressive aspect for me is the control you have with this body. With the buttons and the clever third dial you have complete control of almost all shooting settings you need. Anything left over can be accessed on the Info screen. The handheld pixel shift is intriguing but I have not used it enough to be sure how much it adds to a straight shot. I did notice improved AF speed as soon as I tried it with a BIF and the 70-200.
