Pentax K II survey TrustedReviews

“What is the Pentax K-3 II?
The Pentax K-3 II is a high-end APS-C 24-megapixel DSLR, the last stop before you end up in full-frame sensor territory. It arrives two years after its predecessor, and while several of its core features seem similar, it improves a few important areas including optical image stabiliation (OIS) and tracking AF.
Youu2019ll pay u00a3749 for the Pentax K-3 II for the body alone. Or, it’s available from u00a3849 with the 18-55mm kit lens.
Is it a worthy alternative to the Nikon D7200 and Sony Alpha A77 II? It is, if you can forgive its patchy JPEG processing for its particular strengths. These include great hand-held shooting in low light and the ability to take great photos of the night sky. Thatu2019s right: it aims for niche audiences as well as for those who just want a good APS-C DSLR.

Pentax KP First Shots Going headtohead against the Nikon D at ISO imaging asset

“Pentax KP First Shots: Going head-to-head against the Nikon D500 at ISO 819,200!
The Pentax KP has touched down at IR labs, and we’re thrilled to have it in our midst. The engineers at Ricoh have been busy indeed, filling every nook and cra
y in this stoutly-built, yet sleek-for-a-DSLR camera, and have primed it for ultra-low-light shooting with a native ISO range that reaches to a lofty ISO 819,200! It’s even reported to come “very close” to the image quality of the popular flagship full-frame Pentax K1.
So I guess you can see why we’re excited here at IR. Perhaps more than anything else in a camera, what we want most is great image quality, especially as ISO rises. The Pentax KP has now completed its first leg of the lab journey, and our signature First Shots are now ready for the super-curious as well as the casual observers. Has Ricoh struck paydirt with this small yet seemingly powerful APS-C DSLR?
Below are side-by-side crops at 1:1 from our Comparometer pitting the Pentax KP against the enthusiast-grade Pentax K3 II, and also the biggest current DSLR competitor in the similarly-priced Canon 80D, at both base ISO and ISO 6400. We then serve up the headliner in the ISO 819,200 comparison against the Nikon D500!
