And I agree that it should not be.
The main goal is to attract new user..both pros and serious photographers. Not to please old timers.

No, I didn't bring it home but a friend of mine, a former Pentax part-time employee (during the Salons) was authorised, at the end of the Salon, to have a look at it outside of its glass prison.
So, any indication in return ???
Ergonomy, weight, viewfinder quality, rear screen amplitude...

He is a member of Pentax Forums and it belongs to him to decide which pieces of information he chooses to report publicly and which ones he keeps for private conversations.

But I can assure you the K-1 is a hell of a camera!

Be careful that you aren't including yourself in that group. To the average teen, for example, anyone over 30 is an old-timer.

Old-timers have wisdom and experience. And often have money too. Sometimes pleasing old-timers is good policy. And good karma ...

Thanks, great reply :-) I meant were you able to test it in some way or why do you know it's hell? Or did you mean the size of it?

Ah, what would the world be without English idioms.

"A hell of a camera" (or any other item) means "wow, great camera"

Yes, that's what I guessed mistral75 wanted to say, I only wanted to know how he knew it is. Just by looking at it?

I think Mistral75 already answered that. He said his friend was invited to examine the camera outside its glass display case. One can reasonably infer that they talked about the particulars. Mistral75 also said it was up to his friend to reveal or not reveal those particulars on PF.
