DPR Reviewed the DFA*50 F1.4, with Samples

https://www.dpreview.com/articles/9615174387/hands-on-with-the-pentax-hd-fa-50mm-f1-4-for-real-this-time

Overall looks not too positive. And, it mentions about a rebadged OEM lens, too. Btw, DPR seems not too Pentax friendly these days. ;-)

Measurbating Review of the DFA*50 F1.4 at the Korean SLR Club

http://www.slrclub.com/v/common_review/9979

In Korean, but the test pictures and crops with simple legends are self-explanatory. The DA*55 F1.4 is also compared to. And, K-1 II is used for the test.

(in Traditional Chinese)

With quite some samples, full original JPEGs available with EXIF at the linked Flickr. Some purple/green fringing can be seen at wide apertures, anyway.

I blog, you decide.

DPR has Re-shot Studio Scene

https://www.dpreview.com/articles/1423988259/letter-from-the-reviews-editor-pentax-k-1-mark-ii-studio-scene-re-shoot

Conclusion remains unchanged.

A Practical K-1 Vs Mark II Shootout (with Real Scenes)

http://blog.hisway306.jp/entry/2018/05/15/080000#K-1-Mark-II-vs-K-1-%E3%82%AC%E3%83%81%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B3%E5%AF%BE%E6%B1%BA
(in Japanese)

IMO, the images from the Mark II have dull colours as what DPR suggested. However, the resolution difference is not as huge, ditto for the noise difference.

K-1 II has Worse IQ than K-1 and is Not Recommended by DPR

https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentax-k-1-ii-review/11

I am not surprised with the conclusion for what I have inspected and found with different Mark II samples these days.

DPR K-1 II Samples are Out

https://www.dpreview.com/samples/5389645335/sample-gallery-pentax-k-1-ii

Same as what the PF has found, the direct out-of-the-camera JPEGs look soft to me.

DCW Reviewed the K-1 Mark II

https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/pentax-k-1-mark-ii-review

The K-1 is not compared, though. That is, the Mark II is assessed alone.
