Pentax beats the Sony and Nikon, consistently for colour accuracy and dynamic range.
This guy is primarily a Nikon shooter , but owns. K1 and previously Sony.

Very interesting, perhaps more people will begin to notice that Pentax produce pretty exceptional cameras.
Best regards, John

I did a non-scientific test of high ISO noise in the range 3200 to 12800, in particular, as a comparison between the Sony A7Rii and the K-1 before buying, as I was, primarily, going to use it for gig photography.

As far as I was concerned, the K-1 was "better." By that, I mean that there was less, more manageable, noise.
This space deliberately left blank.

Not while Pentax (Ricoh) refuse to advertise the fact to any real extent.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Seems to me(i have no proof) that the non advertisement dependent revewers speak more keenly about the K1 and other Zpentax products.

Not necessarily Algi, but equally well just because it's on YouTube it doesn't make it untrue.

A state of affairs which suggests one cannot know which it is; not helpful!
SteveH!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

I think we can make a judgement though. The same is true of everything on the internet and in newspapers, etc. We have to find sources who seem rational and balanced and who seem genuine. Although, as always, today's "facts" have a way of being shown up badly in the future as we learn more.

Thus it has always been.

That reviewer stated he was pro Nikon and anti Sony, then embarrassed by the results of his favourite brand in which he has invested heavily. It didn't come across as either a fake or biased review.

I wouldn't trust any of his reviews

He can't even tell/spot when he's got a DUFF Pentax * 70-200mm and even went ahead and published the results

To his credit he's a Pentax fanbuoy

Do you reckon that's just a bad 70-200 and he should get it swapped or is the focus adjustment simply out?
This is an interesting take on the K-1's autofocus:

Not only does he capture a photo of Algi in flight, he suggests the best AF hold setting to use which isn't necessarily the default. How many think to adjust that?
A must view for Pentax AF critics!

It was a faulty lens he actually did a review of his original review saying that his first review was BAD!

Following on with Pentax k1 features
The good: dynamic range, accurate colours, good at high iso, and the bad af myth dispelled hers a view about video.This person mentions the weak points but is going to start blogging .
