marc petzold: Pixelshift hand-hold is a killer feature. Even this feature is much better here integrated, than into comparsion the A7R III, which is a great cam, but by no means that weatherproof as Pentax, period.
When one brand does really deserve the quality, being "weather-proof" then it's Pentax, period. I've shot the K10D (2006) into harsh conditions, even rain, snow & sand, and it have had never failed me, thanks for it's various, internal seals.
Nowadays, a semi-pro Body like the K-1 II is even much better designed, and being sealed.
(The camera store YT Video clearly showed water inside the battery compartment, and it's logical, because later, much respected lens rentals site made a disassembling, and it clearly shows - the A7R III doesn't have any kind of weather seal at the bottom...oh my...) The Nikon D850 into comparsion - passed this weather test by the Camera Store with flying colors. :)

Pixel-shift is a killer feature, these pictures are better than a single shot from the D850.

Isn't pixel-shift kind of useless in any situation where there is motion? A fraction of a second between exposures equals blur.

Reactive: This article could be made much shorter and to the point:
"Pentax K-1 Mark II: What you need to know:
In a first for a 'new' SLR model, this is such a minor upgrade that Pentax will allow existing owners to send off their Mk I and get it upgraded to a Mk II. For just $550, you get to keep the same partially worn-out shutter mechanism, battery, and scrapes of your existing camera, while adding a few features. You might decide to save your $550 and wait for the next model."

Bingo, close thread!
