I'll leave it here as it's partly about the K-1.

Here's my reaction to the video now that I have had a chance to see it more than once.

1) Limited value for real qualitative comparison.
2) High value for subjective comparison
3) It is not meant to be a substantive eval of m4/3 vs. FF
4) Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 is not the best m4/3 lens
5) It was helpful to see how close m43 can be even under uneven conditions. And yet also how much better the K-1 can be.

That is all... nothing earth shattering here.

I agree.

Imagine this.

Thanksgiving dinner, someone brings up a topic, a new thread. Difference between M43 and Full Frame. All you hear was " it ispointless" " it is boring".

Who is in the wrong? I agree, keep it friendly or people who aren't will get a rebuttal that requires some heat.

If you are going to say something that is pointless or boring, Don't say anything at all and move along.

Exactly.

you see gentlemen, that is how exactly a proper feedback is.

I dont want to be boring as this one person suggested on a video.

I will answer , and that is Em5-Mk II, G7/ though it doesnt allow Ibis in 4k video mode and shooting mode. I bought the GF7 but I resold it due to the shutter button. It was made cheap and it felt like it was going to fall off if I used it another year or so. Great compact M43, but they need to fix that issue. Though they are releasing a new version with 4K mode but lacks every other feature that the other models have which is flippy screen, cropping in 4k, weather seal and the list goes on. I like the Gx8, but there is no ibis during 4k recording. If it had that and no crop in 4k recording, it would been a champ.

Hey,

I think this is more towards the M43 community than us but its nice to watch the iso being tested against a crop sensor.

Makes me feel good in owning a K1.

Cheers!
Thank you for posting, very interesting results.
I was expecting the K1 ( more because it is FF) to blow up the MFT, however from the final result perspective.. the mft did a fantastic job. the K-1 definitely is top but how much is upto teh individual.

Makes me think to stick to my K-5II

I invested in M43 back in 2009 for video but still used Pentax for stills because I needed more exposure range and low light performance than M43 could provide. Last Spring, I really wanted a K-1, but video is important to me. I ended up with a pair of Lumix GX85 rangefinder style bodies. Photo image quality is about K-x level (the Sony 12 megapickle sensor) which is sufficient for my needs. Video image quality blows away anything that Pentax produces.

I still want a K-1 to use with my FA31 and FA43, but if the GH-5 produces K-5 level image quality, the only thing that may keep me a Pentaxican is sentimentality.
