Built to last weather sealed ,feels good in the hands, hand held pixal shift does work! Bright viewfinder. I also own a Pentax K3ii which l love to use but the K1ii is on a different league. If you don't shoot sports or video this is a fine camera, as is the K1 I expect.
Buffer can be a bit slow with pixal shift resolution but the file sizes are large.
