As I already said, it's quite high resolution for a DSLR, 307,000 RGBIr pixels; only the Canon 1Dx Mark II and Mark III have higher resolutions.
There's also the ability to precisely identify and compensate for sources of image noise, as well as other neat tricks. I don't know exactly how they did it, but it's amazing and unexpected:
And yes, the next K-1 should be truly amazing.
The D750 was first Nijkon to have eye detect in the OVF with Auto area mode ......... and it works fairly well ..... the D500 has it too, as does I think the D850 .....
...... one thing that has to be remembered though is the size of the AF coverage in the OVF ..... the APSc sensor has the advantage here, having a useful area ...... FF DSLRs much less so, often struggling in portrait mode to even focus on the eyes without spoiling the composition or requiring focus/recompose .....
...... so how beneficial will the tracking/eye detect be using the new sensor will be for FF J1 given it's limited coverage in the frame ? ........ personally I've found FF OVF AF coverage to be a limiting factor ........ a big win for MLCs in that department, mostly covering the whole frame !!
...... the J1, being a special made to order DSLR, if that somewhat strange long alien space module that covers the prism is not to your taste .... you can pick up the standard model!
Come on Pentax get that K3III out to market before the boat sails !!
