In this review, we will be comparing D810A and K-1, two Advanced DSLR cameras from Nikon and Pentax. Nikon D810A was introduced to market in February 2015 and Pentax K-1 was launched in February 2016. There is 12 months difference between D810A and K-1 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger K-1, especially in sensor tech.
We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Advanced DSLR cameras. Out of 93 cameras in this class, Nikon D810A is ranked #9
with an overall score of 81 and Pentax K-1 is ranked #3
with an overall score of 84.
