Need the same sensor

I'm the owner of "Pentax K-01 16MP APS-C CMOS Mirrorless Digital Camera named The brick and I'm the owner of a beautiful K-30.. at same ISO (1600)I can say K 01 is performing far better
Anyone knows how I can find the same sensor in to a Reflex? K 5 ?

All the best

It is my understanding the K-01 and K-30 shared many components including the sensor.

Are you comparing RAW files or in-camera developed JPEGs? A lot could depend on the camera settings on the latter or even changes to the in-camera JPEG engine.

The K-5 is a bit better thanks to 14 bit raw, but ultimately all of the 16 MP bodies share the same sensor and have comparable image quality. You may have some sort of a settings issue on the K-30.

The latest 24 MP bodies pull comfortably ahead in terms of low light performance, and the latest KP can even go up to ISO 819,200.

The K-5 has the same sensor with 14 bit RAW files. The K-5II & K-5IIs have the same sensor with 14bit RAW files & better AF performance. No AA filter on the K-5IIs for slightly sharper photos.
