Is it just me, or does the framerate / buffer make you want to go, "Meh" ??
What do you photograph that changes more than four times per second?? I sometimes photograph trains going 50 mph, and I find that my K-30 set at the lower burst rate (3 fps) is more than enough to get the picture I want (assuming I remember to set it to burst at all).

My daughter turns up her nose at me if I use burst at all. She thinks 1 frame should be enough.

Photographing multiple shots of cars doing 180 mph? aircraft pushing 700+ mph (capturing the vapor cone)? water drops? hummingbirds? There are reasons for higher than 3 fps burst..

You're forgetting all the spray n'pray Pros that need this obvious facility. Didn't you get the memo about just been able to point your camera in the general direction of the subject and get at least 50 perfect shots in under a minute?

Am I the only one how thinks 6.5 FPS in APS-C Mode (16MP) with the next generation processor is strange, if compared to the older processor in the K3-II (24MP) delivering 8.3 FPS?
Maybe the sensor readout is too slow?
Anyways I just hope the shutter is damped and maybe there is an electronic shutter option to tame the 36MP.
I read that the nikon version (esp. D800) had problems because the shutter induced to much shake, probably pentax in body shake reduction will help with this matter too.

More likely the bottleneck a the APSC end is mechanical, not data-throughput. Remember, when shooting in viewfinder mode, it still has to move that big mirror and shutter with each shot, with corresponding damping issues.

Maybe they mean the struts the articulating screen is supported on. They look stainless steel.
That makes sense. And SS would be better for something exposed to the elements.

Here are the full specs of the K-1.

??????K-1??????? - ????info

https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&u=http://digicame-info.co...ml&prev=search

- 36.4MP CMOS sensor. No low pass filter.
- Real resolution (pixel shift)
- Image processing engine PRIME IV
- Sensor Size: 35.9 x 24.0mm
- Video is full HD 60p
- 4K interval movie
- 14-bit RAW
- DR II
- KAF2 mount (KAF3, KAF2, KAF, KA, compatible with power zoom lens)
- AF sensor SAFOX12. AF point is 33 points (25 points are cross-type). -3EV Correspondence
- AF assist light
- Viewfinder magnification 0.70 times. 100% field of view
- Natural-Bright-Matte III focusing screen
- LCD monitor 3.2 inches 1,037,000 dot. Flexible tilting
- GPS built-in. Wi-Fi built-in
- Shutter unit of the compact new design. Durability is 300,000 shots
- Shutter speed is 30 seconds -1/8000 seconds. Synchro speed is 1/200 sec
- Media SD / SDHC / SDXC (UHS-I). Dual card slot
- USB terminal (USB2.0, micro B), HDMI terminal (type D)
- Microphone jack, a headphone jack, X contact
- 5-axis camera shake correction. Effective for five stops.
- Electronic Level
- Photometry sensor 86000 pixel RGB sensor
- ISO range is 100-204800
- Continuous shooting 4.4 frames / sec (full size). 6.5 frames / sec. (APS-C)
- Buffer 70 shots JPEG, 17 shots RAW (when full-size 4.4 frames / sec.)
- The battery is D-LI90
- Battery life is 760 shots
- The body is magnesium alloy and stainless steel. Dust and water resistant. -10 Degrees of resistance to low temperature
- Size: 136.5 x110 x 85.5mm
- Weight: 925g
These specs are spot-on, exactly what I would like to see, given financial constraints. The 5-axis IS, pixel-shift, longer battery life, a slightly higher x-sync are all great.

It was that juried SI workshop she went to in High School with my KX and an elderly school K1000.

Of course all of this is a result of having the KX CLA'ed.

To put this into perspective :
Canon 1DsMKIII: 0.76X @ 100% coverage
Canon 1DX: 0.76X @ 100% coverage
Canon 5DSR: 0.71X @ 100% coverage
Canon 6D 0.71X @ 97% coverage
Canon 5D MKIII: 0.71x @ 100% coverage.
Nikon D750: 0.70x @ 100% coverage.
Nikon D600: 0.70x.@ 100% coverage.
Nikon D810: 0.70x. @ 100% coverage.
Nikon D4s: 0.70X @ 100% coverage.
that's a (little) disappointment there... with that 67 like huge hump, I expect mind blowing/class leading huge VF.

How's that 0.7x in FF compare to current K series (area wise)?

Here's a decent educational piece I found explaining the balancing act that has to occur when designing optical viewfinders: https://luminous-landscape.com/understanding-viewfinders/. I suspect that 0.7x magnification is pretty much the full frame dslr "sweet spot" for having a properly bright viewfinder for manual focusing and also to leaving enough area for displaying camera control parameters (aperture, shutter speed, iso, etc.).

I looked it up. The steel seems to be the inner plate where shutter and sensor array are mounted on.
