T6i, T6S, D5500, KS2 Comparison

Hey guys, just thought I'd link to a video released by Tony Northrup comparing the four cameras with a 50 mm prime.

Thanks for the link. I was a bit surprised at how well Pentax K-S2 made out. Obviously this couple is not brand limited.

No they admirably try every brand and are wiling to jump brands to meet a need.

Great video...Two comments:
  • Full Sigma line for Pentax?
  • K-2S for sports? Now that is a revelation. I wonder how it might have done with a 70-210 as tested on the other cameras?

Well done Pentax. They said that this is the first Pentax that they'e tested. Might be true but Tony has mentioned the 645Z in a positive light.

I think in a previous video they've said any gear they review has been purchased by them and not sent from manufacturers to review. May explain why it's their first Pentax, other models weren't on their radar to spend money to get their hands on.

I really like how they make camera recommendations for different photographic tasks, such as travel, sports, video and even recommend cameras outside the bunch under test.

They recommend the Pentax for sports. That was a surprise.
