I've switched to Nikon three years ago. Sold Pentax cameras, flashes, accessories. However I kept three FA limiters. Was waiting for Pentax FF.

But these specs are disappointing. 36 Megapixels and only 4.4 fps Way too much megapixels and way too slow.

My three FA limiteds will be listed in marketplace soon...
We've missed you so much ! 3 years seems like an eternity ! You're here because ...? Good Luck ! You'll fit in just perfectly at dpr !

Looks like the K-1 supports the same wired tethering as the 645Z, via the PENTAX Image Transmitter 2 tethering software. Good news! Bad news: $199.

I wonder if the free Pentax 645Z Lightroom tethering plug-in will also work for the K-1?

Well then, it's a good thing we have the affiliate site, NIKON FORUMS, for you to join (if you haven't already). Do have fun, stop back and see us sometime. I am sure your FA limiteds will find a good home.

I saw "Flash Sync Speed" setting in Custom Menu... Hopefully they allow to send the regular sync signal above sync speed with this...

If its not the camera for you, that is too bad. The initial professional reviews at Popular Photography and DPReview are much more positive than I had expected. No one camera is going to make everyone happy. In my case, I don't have the $$$$, but that is OK; I came back to Pentax (from Canon) because of reliability reasons, and so far I am perfectly glad to have a seat here in the less-expensive seats.

Excacly my thoughts. Good to see that it does tethering. Wireless to the desktop would have been ideal to ditch that tripwire. Crossing fingers for the lightroom plugin.

I think the price reflects the dated specifications. The camera is a good value. Its basically a D800 (minus the better AF) for $1,800. That is a pretty good deal. My question is, why did it take so many years to make a 5 year old camera?

Actually, the specifications are precisely spot-on perfect. No frilly racer-boy stuff I'll never use, 300,000 actuation shutter (heavier so slower), 6.5 fps jpg (I don't shoot raw bursts), 33 AF points is plenty, it's K-mount and it's $1,800.

Try it with the exact same subject. You will probably find that the traditional long exposure look is superior to stacking. Of course this just my opinion. I did this with a GR for a few waterfalls and, hands down, I prefered the looks of the long exposure. I wish I had kept both so I could show a comparison. Maybe someone else has done this with good results and can post samples and explain their technique.
That is actually interesting, I must try that when i find a suitable subject. I have no clue what could cause this difference. I assume your total stacked exposure time was the same as the long exposure?

How does the D800 do at ISO 204800?

It's a fair question. I guess they were just waiting for the D800 sensor to find it's way into the bargain bin.

I do wish they had been a little bit more ambitious, particularly with the AF and the viewfinder. I was SO looking forward to wider frame coverage AF, and focus peaking (or similar manual focus aids) via an overlay in the viewfinder.

Oh well. There is clearly value there, so I will probably still buy one.

Well, I'm "disappointed" too but to be fair the K-1 is actually slightly faster than my current D800 but ever so slightly slower than the D810. And it must be mentioned that it is faster and/or has a bigger buffer than either the D750 and D600. So while it would be awesome if it were 6.5fps @ 36mp, 4.4fps would neither be a significant improvement nor significant liability vis a vis Nikon's FX offerings. There are however other issues that may encourage me to keep my D800 for another year or two rather than switch out my FX for Pentax. For the time being, I'm a rather happy camper with my old D800 and new K-3ii. Makes for a nice system. I hope to rent a K-1 later this year and do a side-by-side comparison.
