Yes, Pentax is still very much in the game and they've just announced their latest full-frame DSLR, the K-1 Mark II. So how does it stack up against its rivals? The camera retains its 36MP full-frame sensor, but adds a PRIME IV image processor and an Accelerator Unit that allows the camera to shoot at ISO speeds of up to 819200 for stills and up to 25,600 for video. 

Another feature is their latest Pixel Shift technology that captures four images of a scene so it can ensure that each pixel obtains all the colors in an image to create detailed, color-rich images with low noise. It also features a Dynamic Pixel Shift Resolution mode that lets you shoot sharp, high-resolution images without having it mounted on a tripod.
