Reasons For

8 Reasons For
1% more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon D750 is a 24.93MP digital camera. That's 0.22MP more than the Pentax K-3 II (24.71MP).
0.5x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon D750 is a 3.5x optical zoom digital camera. That's 0.5x bigger than the Pentax K-3 II (3x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
Nikon D750 is 50 minimum ISO speed. That's 50 smaller than the Pentax K-3 II (100).
Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Nikon D750 is 1,228,800 pixels display resolution. That's 191,800 pixels higher than the Pentax K-3 II (1,037,000 pixels).
PictBridge Edit
The Nikon D750 supports pictBridge, whereas the Pentax K-3 II does not support pictBridge.
1230.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The number of battery life (CIPA standard)s on the Nikon D750 is 1230.00, but the Pentax K-3 II only takes 720.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

15 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.
Better selling

6 Reasons For
Slightly higher megapixel Edit
The Pentax K-3 II has a megapixel of 24.35MP, however the Nikon D750 is only a 24.3MP digital camera (0.050000000000001MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

24% smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Pentax K-3 II has a maximum aperture number of 38, however the Nikon D750 is only a 29 maximum aperture digital camera (9 bigger).
Twenty-six more auto Focus (AF) pointss Edit
The Pentax K-3 II has 27.00 auto Focus (AF) pointss, however the Nikon D750 only has one auto Focus (AF) points.
0.25x higher magnification Edit
Pentax K-3 II is 0.95x lens magnification ratio, but the Nikon D750 is only a 0.7x lens magnification ratio digital camera (0.25x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Lighter Edit
The Pentax K-3 II is a 700g digital camera. That's 50g lighter than the Nikon D750 (700g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

$610 cheaper
The Pentax K-3 II costs $799.95, whereas the Nikon D750 is $1,409.95.
