K-5 ii sensor vs K-5 Sensor

I have the impression of the K-5ii and the K-5 share the same sensor until i browse one of the reviews suggested that the K-5 ii is using a new sensor. Anyone can please confirm this ?

Thanks

Which review? I think the K-5 and K-5II have the same sensor, but different AF module. They also have the same CPU. This is why the K-5II doesn't allow new video modes or anything like that, and it delivers the same IQ, but has better AF (especially in low light)
