In this review, we will be comparing D5600 and K-S2, two Entry-Level DSLR cameras from Nikon and Pentax. Nikon D5600 was introduced to market in November 2016 and Pentax K-S2 was launched in February 2015. There is 21 months difference between D5600 and K-S2 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger D5600, especially in sensor tech.
We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Entry-Level DSLR cameras. Out of 81 cameras in this class, Nikon D5600 is ranked #6
with an overall score of 73 and Pentax K-S2 is ranked #1
with an overall score of 76.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Nikon D5600 and Pentax K-S2 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
