Spec comparison with Canon and Nikon

Pentax K-1 vs Nikon D810 vs Nikon 750 vs Nikon 610 vs Canon 5d Mk III vs Canon 6 - Pentaxeros.com

I hope that you know how to read specs even the language is not english.

Btw does Pentax K-1 have extensive iso range? D750 and 5d mark3's iso range from that chart show 100-12,800 and 100-25,600 but since I used these camera for several times, these have an extensive iso range from iso 50. If Pentax K-1's native iso is 100-204800, then the extensive iso range might be bigger I think.

Pentax stopped doing expanded ISO ranges a while ago. it just clutters up the menu

The K-1's range is 100 to 204,800 (the top end is industry-leading for this resolution).

Thanks for posting this. The K-1 seems to compare very well. It will be interesting to see how the sensor performs. I suspect it was the reason for the delays, so maybe it has some "evolved" characteristics. ISO 204,800 is so far ahead of the pack that it has to be different - and I suspect that difference could be in reduced noise.

I took some time to highlight the best and worst values in that table. I think it helps better visualize the differences between the models.
