Nice K1ii review I came across....

I don't know if this is the right forum so admins feel free to put it where it belongs. If this a repost of a simaler post feel free to delete.
I love reading Flipboard and came across this article, pretty good review to boot as well.

Thanks for posting. I often like this reviewers comments and he focuses on practical use of the camera in different photographic settings rather than just focusing on specs. I have to say I agree with his points ...even the more negative bits. I upgraded my K-1 to the K-1ii after using a new K-1 ii. Now I have two 😊

Thanks for posting. Good review for sure.
I think the K-1 II is good camera - its just not much improved over the K-1 and so does not appeal so much as an upgrade.

Great post! I think he did a great review, because he is honest about what he found while using the camera.

Good review without biased garbage thrown in. He obviously liked the K-1 MkII and he is a mirrorless shooter primarily, so that is impressive!

That's what I liked most about the review, he sounded more like a true photographer instead of some Canikony fan boy.....

That's a solid review, he knows the Pentax world and true lens availability. TFS

I've read Joe Farace's reviews for a long time. Even if he doesn't shoot a particular brand, he always given it a fair shake. He has particularly been kind in the past to Pentax. So much better than the majority of on line fanboy sites. With Shutterbug going on line only, maybe I should pay more attention to his blog.
