I really don't think the auto-focus is that bad on the K-1

tbh, the AF of pentax isn't on par with the bigger brands, at all. This is not something we can discuss. It's pretty much proven. Speed usually depends on prefocus etc, but the camera's ability to understand subject and lock on, pentaxjust isn't there. Just like the AF grid is TINY and center weighted. Whereas pretty much everyone else has one that extends pretty much the entire frame. yes I shoot the k1II and have shot pentax for years now. I use it because I love the IQ and feel of the cameras.

But were I doing sports or anything like that. I wouldn't use pentax if I had the choice of other brands.

We use the brand because we feel it gives us something unique. However AF has never been that. We've learned to live with it, yes, and adapt.

I agree that the k1mkii has been one of the most perfect cameras for me. It also sparked my photo joy again.

Currently I'm shooting both K1mkii and Olympus OMD EM1mkii both superb cameras though very very different. Which one do I prefer? it totally depends on the situation

DP Review puts K-1 Mark II as second worst camera of 2018

Honestly, before Chris and whatshisname joined DPR, DPR hated Pentax. it's a shame that they followed that agenda. It's always been clear that there's some kind of hatred going on. And them going "who here loves pentax?" as honest as a politician.

TCSTV always gave honest reviews about pentax. I.R. gives honest reviews like so many others, non biased regardless of brand, just not DPR.

If I can be blunt. I find the image a bit busy. too many details. too sharp. Too many sharp pixels. I would probably prefer it if only some details had that leading sharpness/depth and the other perhaps bit more blurry, if it makes sense.

I'm not sure where to look in the image.

Full frame vs half frame
Posted By CNunez

I shoot both FF and M34rds which is considered a half frame compared to a FF due to the 2x crop factor, I suppose.

The major comparison between the two, is that the smaller sensor wastes the information/light from the image circle the larger lenses produce. Seeing as the sensor cannot see the outer parts of the image circle, it crops what could have been produced.

Picture quality: my M43rds is 20mpix and K1 crop is 15mpix there isn't any dip in quality at all, when in good light. Once light drops, it becomes a case of which sensor has the best technology.

I take a lot of pictures with the smaller sensor which nobody would be able to tell weren't taken on a FF camera.

imho, buying the K1mkii was THE best camera purchase I have ever made. Going from K3 to K1mkii it felt like the images had so much more depth and color to them. hard to say exactly what it was. They just felt magical somehow. Unless it's the size of the camera, I would take the step up. It also means you can invest in FF lenses. That said, surprisingly a lot of APSC lenses are FF capable whether they state it or not.

K1 to K1 Mark II or not II

mk2 feels way more decisive with AF, faster as well.

Currently I shoot a lot of low lit venues, often at high ISO and the noise is barely there. The IQ is amazing to work with, something I would never consider before the K1 was launched. Of course the K1 (not mk2) performs imo just as well at high ISO, the differences are minuscule, while there, not groundbreaking.

I find that his ways of conducting these tests aren't very scientific. His images look like the focus is placed differently, hence why some things are more blurred than others. Likewise, he starts out saying that no single update alone has ever created magic to fix something, which again isn't the case here.

Someone stated that Capture One doesn't produce purple when pushing the exposure. Can someone verify this?

I went for the mk2 not having a k1 to begin with.

The Autofocus boost was one of the main incentives for getting it. I'm very happy with the results so far.
