Compare the K-S1 to Canikon's "entry levels" for 2014
2 months ago

Using the "side by side" comparison tool here at DPR, I find that the K-S1, despite the degree to which it is being flamed, beats both the EOS 1200D and Nikon D3300 pretty handily.  The fact that DPR's "first look" compared it to the K-50 seems suspicious when those other two 2014 "entry levels" were available.   Among other things, the DPR comparison tool calls the other two "compact SLRs" and the K-S1 "mid-size," when the other two are both larger in all dimensions.   Other specs also favor the K-S1 strongly, and the K-S1 looks a heck of a lot better than both of those "black blobs with knobs."   I think K-S1 is a very elegant win in the entry level category for Pentax, but you won't get a clue of that at DPR.
