Pentax K1m2 Sensor Performance: Noise
4

Here is a quick and dirty test of sensor noise performance for astrophoto and similar uses.

These are a couple of sky images (Pentax K1M2, old 55 mm f2.8 macro , 100% crops, the left at 800 ISO (pushed two stops in Lightroom) while the right at 3200. There is some minor processing to equalize brightness and contrast, but no noise reduction.

So, it looks like this is starting to approximate ISOless performance, where there is not penalty for boosting shadows, etc. in post as opposed to using a higher ISO.

I think this is better performance than the original K-1
