In this review, we will be comparing K-S2 and D5600, two Entry-Level DSLR cameras from Pentax and Nikon. Pentax K-S2 was introduced to market in February 2015 and Nikon D5600 was launched in November 2016. There is 21 months difference between K-S2 and D5600 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, Pentax K-S2 is ranked #1
with an overall score of 76 and Nikon D5600 is ranked #6
with an overall score of 73.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Pentax K-S2 and Nikon D5600 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Pentax K-S2 and Nikon D5600 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
