Finally, the mostly awaited Pentax gallery has been opened - PENTAX K-1 Laboratory | PENTAX K-1 Special site | RICOH IMAGING
Yay! The DA70 works very well. Need to stop down a good bit and maybe slightly crop (and add a little de-vignetting) for good landscape shots, but for closeups and portraits the vignetting will probably just add to the picture.

DFA28-105 is cool
I think I've only seen very good pictures from this lens so far. What a kit lens!

Challengers | PENTAX K-1 Special site | RICOH IMAGING I note the arc of articles with their planned release dates, a week apart, the last of which is April 22nd. The Ricoh Facebook contest closes on the 19th. Figuring in time taken to contact the winner and get the camera to them (from the nearest continental HQ), I reckon the shelf date in stores is going to be the 29th (one week after the release of the last article).

The official launch date for the K-1 in Japan has been announced. It's April 28.

PENTAX K-1

This means the date when it will definitely be available in all major electronics stores. In the past I've noticed that people have reported receiving their cameras in other countries in advance of the announced dates for Japan, so it doesn't necessarily mean that pre orders elsewhere will have to wait for the Japan release.

Well this rumored date was the little push that i need to order the K1 grip... There's any chance to make BH join both orders in one (send both articles togjeter in one box)?

They haven't confirmed this yet, but if i understood correctly, there will be a smaller shipment that goes out before the official date. I know i am going around to the stores that are gonna sell K-1 to give them a demo with the camera before they put it in the stores. Im shure i need a camera for that

Not bad guessing on my part.

BTW I found this (from the K-1 special site) interesting:

QuoteQuote:
The current design team consists of designers from both RICOH and former PENTAX. The PENTAX K-1 was the first camera designed by this joint team. First, the design team began to analyze the product concept, led by a veteran of more than 25 years of PENTAX SLR camera design.
So, then - very much a joint effort, but with a lot of weight given to Pentax's design heritage.

I'd totally consider getting it at Amazon if the sales tax weren't going to be crushing. Not worth $150 to get it a week or two earlier.

As it stands, looks like we'll have a grip with no camera for a while. Strange.

Every time i recieve a notification update from this thread i think i will finally read "my k1 have been shipped" or see the picture of Kenspo with two K1 .... Unsuscribing the thread for sanity reason... The wait was more bearable when i know still was left months to realease rather than just a few weeks

Not sure if this has been asked but why not include a crop mode at APS-H size. Most of the DA LTDs should work optimally at APS-H.
