I had not seen the field review - thanks for pointing it out.

The change in the K1 to K1-II is high ISO performance is very subjective. Especially jpg shooters might prefer the K-1 II output (as there is potentially less PP) but for me I actually prefer the output from the original K-1 (especially ISO 1600 - 6400 where I'm more likely to use my K-1). At iSOs higher than say 12800, the K-1 II may have an advantage (possibly a little beyond what could do with with K-1 + PP?).

Great to see a field review as its a very capable camera!

Interesting that all he compares is noise.
'Accelerator' also seems to improve both dynamic range and color depth/ accuracy , which shows in his photos if you look for that also.

I think there may be a part III....this has been a very loooong review cycle. Months separated parts 1 & 2.
