Pentax K-3 II DxOMark Sensor Review and Test Results

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for the Pentax K-3 II DSLR camera which is currently in stock at Amazon for $929.

Pentax K-3 II has an excellent overall performance and gets 80 points overall DxOMark sensor score and DxOMark said: “In terms of overall ranking in our database, the K-3 II lags marginally behind the best APS-C sensors in models such as the Nikon D5300 or the Sony A6000 for DR, noise, and color discrimination, but the results do not include sensor resolution or data from the multi-shot Pixel Shift option. It ranks in 50th place overall and in joint third place for Pentax models tested to date, including the medium-format Pentax 645D (we’ve yet to test the potentially impressive Pentax 645Z).”

From DxOMark Conclusion:

It may lack the out-right sensor performance of the Nikon D7200 in single-shot mode, but the Pentax K-3 II isn’t far behind. Overall then, given the widest range of purpose-built APS-C lenses, the durable build, impressive specifications, and overall capability, the Pentax K-3 II is an attractive and genuinely intriguing option to the usual Canon and Nikon models.
