Not that a week or two more or less matter (yet).

Dear fellow Pentaxians!
Does anyone know if the O-ME53 Magnifier Eyecup fits the K-1? There is no information on ricoh-imaging.
I don't think so, but i'll try as soon as i get K-1

I wonder how an M50 1.7 would fare on the K-1.
Is elegant and sharp on the Sony A7RII with good color and contrast so it should be excellent on the K-1. My goal for the K-1 is to be good enough to make me comfortable selling the A7RII. I have pre-ordered so, from what I have seen so far, I think it will be at least that good. The only thing of importance I will miss in the A7RII will be the size if the K-1 is as good as it looks.

The price is so low that I am afraid to pre-order it. What if the price is wrong?



So many questions:

Should I buy now, or wait until the bugs are worked out?
Adorama or B&H? I have accounts in both of them but not sure where to pre-order. What if they out of business before April 15? :0

They will not charge your card until it ships. The price is not wrong, but if by some chance they decided to raise it, the stores would either honor the original price, or give you a chance to back out. Just do it. Preorder it now!

Can someone tell me which of the specifications are "jaw dropping"?
It's Pentax, and it's full frame!!!

For the price, it does seem to have a pretty impressive list of features compared to 5D or D810....

I trust Pentax will treat the early adopters nicely if there are any teething problems. I have been first in line befor, and will be so again. (I have never had any serious issues though, so I have never tested my thinking) :-)

It is one of those self evident truth's. Don't need to click on the link (just gives him more traffic) to know that

...but I think it helped to persuade even the most polite members to agree

What a complete tool. I would recommend other Pentaxians do not even click the link (and thereby increase his website's traffic). Unless you enjoy being angered by trolls.

Made the mistake of clicking on his link out of curiosity. Biased, emotive and judgemental before even trying out the camera. Says it all.

Ash says it perfectly. I am sorry for clicking on the link, I should have ignored it.
