Oh? And by "high ISO" you mean ISO200?

I'm starting to question your K-1 images in your gallery. It just isn't possible to own and use a tool, and hate it so much.
Kunzite expressed what I'm thinking quite a long time now reading your posts. You must hate your K-1 and for me it's not a surprise that your copy is troublesome with all this negativity...

You can still use it for supporting a table's broken leg or in your flush to save some water and then shoot with the other "serious" cameras from Canonikon...

Pentax doesn't seems to be doomed anymore
That scares me a lot......I've never shot with an un-doomed Pentax and it is sort of scary for an old guy like me. Tell me it will be OK?

Regards!

IMO the biggest problem with equivalence is that it tells you to use different formats as to hide the differences, and not how to use each format to your advantage.
Well, what a wise and reasonable post!

That is not practical comparison. Practical comparison is to expose milky way and try to get it pop.
To me, Milky Way "pops" by virtue of existing.

What does camera have to do to make Milky Way "pop" for you??
Will it still look like the actual thing???

I'm so tempted to post my 450mm, one eye in focus, selfie "in drag" photo to prove you wrong.....

Eye is analog, nothing digital can replicate what you see. And no film for that matter.

D3s, D4, D4s, D5, D750, D810A, A7s(2) and R2 are better in astro work. A7s(2) are funky so that you can stop down to f/5.6 and smaller while still being able to properly expose night sky. Or use longer focal lengths with shorter exposure times and very high ISO.

Astrotracer does not really count, it makes it PITA to shoot anything else than celestial objects.

This answer is not helpful.

I have no idea what "D4", etc stand for, nor what their specific characteristics are.

What specific characteristics (*) do they have that you don't find in Pentax cameras??

(*) specific characteristics are things like Dynamic Range, noise, etc.

Most here have him in the ignore list.

Also works: Cleanse his posts of all whining and unproven claims/lies and see what is left.
