K-5 IIs / K-5 II VS. Canon 1D-IV - can you tell the difference?!
Nov 13, 2012

After reading a bit through this thread... K-5 IIs vs K-5 II - can you tell the difference?

I decided to make a small comparison by myself and to try and take on a "Big cannon" -

the Canon 1D-IV.

Some would call it an unfair battle... others will say that this just can't be true...

But just take a look at the crops below by yourself, then decide.

I used the standard DPR comparison tool, in ISO 1600 & 3200. I also threw in the 645D @ iso1600, just to show that a real difference _can_ be achieved.

Do you think that (ergonomics aside) - the 1D-IV is really worth it's HUGE price premium?

ISO 3200
