This is quite the coup for Pentax to beat out both Canon and Nikon in ‘under $2,000’ full-frames. Whereas the Sony A7 II is a mirrorless the Pentax K-1 is a bona fide DSLR.


2016 quite the year for Pentax. Two cameras so far — both getting rave reviews. Very competitive pricing too.


The Pentax K-70, as I have already raved about, is impressive. And then there is the full-frame, DSLR K-1 that is pushing the likes of the venerable Canon EOS 6DNikon D610 onto the sideline. The K-1 has really got me thinking whether I should cease with all compromises and just go full-frame! Wow. Just to get me thinking full-frame was quite a feat. So Pentax definitely deserves more due diligence and scrutiny in 2016 than ever before — though the Pentax K-3 (2013) even before the Pentax K-3 II (2015) was always a DSLR to be reckoned with.
