Is it me or is this the first time in a Pentax camera announcement on this forum that the number of "Yahs!" have overcome the "Nays!" posts...
K5 is also good!

OK, I'll start:

Too cheap! Kunzite will be up in arms
Way too late to be first. Within a few minutes of the announcement, there was at least one complaint that this is more camera than the complainant wanted, and several complaints that the video is inadequate.

In the past all I wanted from the loooong expected mythical FF was... to come true. ;-) Since the K-1 is here, thatīs all I wanted and I am very satisfied.

Now [for me] is Monday the 22nd, 9pm.

So 3 days to go!!

[But CP+ doesn't sound as exciting anymore, now that we know all about the K-1].

I'm still hoping for some surprise, who knows?! Something like some prime(s) launch, or a 645 -> K adapter...

Was a response to rawr saying the CP+ was not exciting anymore. Personally don't need it before early April except if I see good offers on used market.

Nope. Zzzzzzzzzz.

Wake me up when everything settles down - pricing, lens roadmap, etc.

The last roadmap (from Sept 2015) still shows one more lens to come: DA wideangle zoom (cca. 12-28mm). Plus I expect a couple of new planned lenses for FF. However for me (at least now) DA lenses are more interesting, so I hope Ricoh doesnīt forget the DA line.

I'll insert that I'm happy to see a 28~105mm as probably the kit lens. For me that is a good range for a FF basic lens, and almost certainly far less expensive than the (absurdly priced?) 24~70mm that's already been issued.

24-70mm is not pricey, compare it with N/C couterparts. However there is still place for something cheaper than f2,8 zoom but faster than the kit zoom (something like 24-105mm f4).
