Lab re­sults

An­drew Sy­den­ham’s lab tests re­veal just how the cam­era per­forms Our cam­eras and lenses are tested us­ing the in­dus­try­s­tan­dard Im­age En­gi­neer­ing IQ-Anal­yser soft­ware. Visit www.im­age-en­gi­neer­ing.de for more de­tails

While the Mark II’s im­age qual­ity isn’t ob­vi­ously changed from the orig­i­nal, it’s still very fine, and over­all the best you can get for the price. In­deed, with static sub­jects amenable to pixel-shift mode, the K-1 Mark II will out­per­form any other full-frame cam­era, aside from the £3,200 Sony A7R III. At low ISOs the sen­sor de­liv­ers su­perb de­tail and dy­namic range, while high- ISO im­age qual­ity is pretty good, too, with quite ac­cept­able re­sults at ISO 12,800. I’d avoid go­ing higher than this, and found the new ISO 409,600 and ISO 819,200 set­tings to be com­pletely un­us­able.
