IN other news, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has managed to climb all the way up to #14 on the list and has Dynamic Range almost equivalent to a K-5. Unfortunately my last two Canon shooting landscape buddies recently ditched all their Canon gear for Nikon D810s and Nikon gear. I told them something was coming from Pentax, but they wouldn't listen.

That is similar to telling your wife she is the best woman you married.

People should post responses on Dxomark to the effect: thanks for an objective, informative review and politely ask for lens tests.
They have not tested a Pentax lens since November 2013, so I would not hold my breath waiting !!

I think considering the $1500 price difference to the closest contenders (and the newest Canon 5D IV at $3499 scoring 91) this is pretty damn amazing!

I use PDCU or in camera development. Since I moved from the K200 (CCD) to K5 (CMOS), K3 and now K1, I was never really content with the colors of CMOS, and my impression is that it got worse. I think I'd need a color calibration card and try to tune colors to my taste. I think I'm not talented for colors, it feel out of control.
And I feel that the colors from the K-1 is like the ones from the K10d that I loved. How different one can feel.

I just wonder. They write:
"The new Pentax high score puts the K-1 in fifth place for all sensors we’ve tested and an impressive third place podium position for full-frame interchangeable lens cameras."
But when You look at the camera database, K-1 is in the fourth place.
I think the 645Z is on top, but they have not published it's results.
Remember that the Sony right on top of the K-1 is a mirrorless Full Frame with a fixed 35mm i think , so yeah, the K-1 is #3 from the FF Interchangeable Lens Cameras.

What Canon users think of 5D Mark IV? It is pretty much described here :

In Finland the prices for lenses are so ridiculous that Canon 5D4 with few good L-lenses equals K-1 kit with new d-fa zooms. And the new Canon is now in the same ballbark as Sony ff-cameras in terms of performance.

Of these two it is the Canon which wins in my book thanks to supreme selection of special lenses like the WA T-SE and excellent 90mm T-SE.

Easy to joke about Canon but they have all use cases covered and if/when ML firmware hits mk4 it leaves all others eating dust in terms of features. Display gain alone is worth it.

K-1 has better low light ISO than Nikon D800/800E/810 and marked ISO is close to real ISO than Nikon has.
For example, K-1 has 13155 ISO marked as ISO12800. Nikon D800 has 8661. E.t.c.

Not small difference.

Critique is 99% about its totally dissapointing video features.
Canon users expected universal camera, excellent in stills and videos.
As a still camera it is very good, but as a video camera it is "2012 edition".
So that is not a joke, that is a reality which looks like a joke

Yes, I saw that ISO was very well calibrated, except the 2-3 highest. ISO 204800 is actually 284153, about 39% higher then indicated. I can imagine that if one have a need for extreme ISO, its good news that it can be pushed even further.

The k-1 is third in sports score (after only a7s and a7 r II and second in dr (after Nikon D810) and eight in color depth. That kills the score.

They should do a pixel shift run. It should score better on all counts. Also did they weigh the overall score the same as for the Nikons???
