15 MP in Crop mode. You can see some sample photos in DP Review sample Gallery. Some shots were with DA 70 f/2.4. Further they also showed a chart of some of the Pentax DA primes and the likely effect of the primes with K1. The sample pictures have both JPEG and RAW format and their file sizes.

Thanks for that info. The DA70 info is great, as I've got that lens. :-)

Have you considered the Panny G7 rather than a bridge cam? 600 new at B+H right now and going for under $500 used on ebay, with great 4k video and able to use your existing Pentax glass with an adapter. There are even ones out there that will add aperture ring functionality to a DA lens.

I'm adding myself to the happy dance!

Granted, a ff camera isn't in the cards for me right now, but I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on it to see how it handles in real-life situations. Realistically, my next camera purchase will most likely be a Panasonic advanced bridge camera with 4K video for my husband to use for the video and for me to use for still as a backup to my K5 (scratching head trying to figure out where to come up with $700 for that camera vs $1800 for the K1). Besides, I'm looking to get more use out of the 16-85 and 40 ltd that I bought last summer. Why lug around the extra weight of the K1 just to use it in crop mode?

Never say never, though.

I just cycled through all 33 images -- all of them are at 36.2 MP -- no crop mode. the DA 70 shots are show in Full Frame mode.

I wonder how an M50 1.7 would fare on the K-1.

Im looking forward to adding that 15-30mm to my bag. Anyone know the weight of that new lens?

Also does anyone know how the pixelshift of the k1 compares to the 645d/645z?

Won't improve the autofocus one bit.

I'll be getting something else when it's time to upgrade. Maybe Olympus...?
That's exactly the direction I went in December...

Anyone here have information on when we'll see more details of the features in actual use?

I would like to see:

1) Many more DA lenses in FF mode at different apertures
2) Motion Correction with the PIxel Shift mode in use at various locations (lake, trees in wind, people and cars moving in city scene, etc)
3) The functionality of the AF tracking and speed of locking on (esp in dark or low contrast settings -- testing the limits)
4) Shake reduction in the K-1 vs the Shake Reduction in the K-3II (any noticeable difference?)
5) More high ISO tests
6) DR values at ISO 100

Some of this will take time to assemble.. so I'm more curious when we might see this type of data?

You probably won't see anything until the production models actually ship.

The evaluation models in people's hands now:
  • are using pre-production firmware
  • are on "loan" for a very limited time
  • there appear to be restrictions on what images/videos produced can be shared/posted publicly.

I downloaded the raw DNG for this image of the car front end

Pentax K-1 Pre-Production Sample Gallery: Digital Photography Review

and played around with it. Here is a 2:1 crop (200%) of the in-focus headlight. Nice to see the 70 limited perform. Note the shallow plane of focus. Very impressive in all aspects, even more so at full resolution.

Dear fellow Pentaxians!
Does anyone know if the O-ME53 Magnifier Eyecup fits the K-1? There is no information on ricoh-imaging.
