If the release date is on the 18 as many predicted , it's now less than 10 days. I am sure Kenspo will not comment if true.
I saw Feb. 3rd on an official Ricoh prezo I was shown. Obviously it was not correct. I hope the price I saw is correct. If so, we are all in for a nice surprise. On the other hand, the Feb. 3 date mights have been date of delivery of stock to dealers. Which could mean only one thing... when it is announced in a week or so, it would be available for immediate ordering and delivery. Can't wait to order one.

I would not bet my last dime on it, according to other informations it could be available as of early April and not earlier (but i wish you were right).

It would still be the cheapest 36mp in town.
Yes... by far. Let's say it is more than reasonably priced. So boy and girls get ready!!

Finally, it is time to try all those full frame glass we have collected over the years on a genuine full frame Pentax body.

Pre-order? Where can you pre-order a K1 (or whatever the FF will be called)? I'm new to Pentax and may be missing the boat somewhere...

The ship hasn't docked yet, but the passengers are in the terminal queued for its journey

and it will be a mass scramble for tickets when it does come in.

Dallas, TX isn't big enough for two K-1's in the wild! If I find a shop around here that knows anything about it, I'll let you know.

Kenspo, do you know if the K-1 will have an option for electronic first curtain shutter, as the D810, Sony A7 series, and Canon fullframe cams do? That is very high on my needs list to eliminate vibration when doing long tele work on a tripod (mirror lockup is not enough at certain troublesome shutter speeds).

Thanks,
Ross

That's a logical detail, but an interesting feature for pentaxians
Btw, i am really pissed-off by the AF non-disclosure of those who know about it.
This point is for sure a "win or loose" feature for this K-1, because there's been till now so much lagging behind who you know...
