Just wait a week and take everything until April 25th with salt. Production units aren't officially shipped yet, are they? Test unit posts are either violations of NDA or they aren't production test units, right?
Right, but situation is that we have all the same just now.
During PhotoForum-2016, best Russian annual photo event, official distributor have delivered production version of the camera.
At first two days we had an opportunity to try pre-production version of K-1, and had no chance to put SD-card into it.
But at Saturday, April 16, they give us camera delivered from Japan by airplane and nothing was forbidden.
A lot of people have tried a lot of lenses. Officially. Yeah

Oh no, I only just found this.. And Chur isn't exactly round the corner for me (though I'm sure lots of you in the US would argue it is, but our scales tend to be a bit smaller )!

Where I live anything less than a hour drive is "just round the corner". It's 20 miles to the nearest grocery store................

Do you commute an hour or more to work daily? I know people here that do that.. even out of state! And it boggles my mind.

Nope, work from home mostly. On the road about one week per month. I cover 4 states for the company I work for.

Ahh how I think I'd enjoy working from home.. your own home, no commute.. plus, you can hop on the PF during break times..

Anything over 30 minutes for me is an excursion. Work commute is 20 minutes and that's a big deal. On paper St. Louis is really spread out, but if you live near the center as I do almost everything is within a half hour.

OTOH my associate lives 75 minutes away. 20 acres in completely undeveloped countryside is less money than a suburban home, including the transportation cost. I couldn't do it, but her husband works 75 miles the other direction so they're placed where they think they should be.

'Commute' is about 3 minutes Downside is you are always at work. So if the phone rings at 9pm you are still at work.

When we lived just north of Springfield MA, for a couple of years I worked in SE Connecticut - 75 minutes away, including driving on I-91 through both Springfield MA and Hartford CT.

+1 My commute time is 12-25 minutes depending on circulation. I tend to favor time were there isn't much traffic and don't hesitate to go on Pentax Forum for half an hour some days to wait a bit before coming back, this can save 5-10 minutes of commute time.

The most important resource we have on this life is our time, it never go back and often we don't really know when it will stop, could be tomorrow. So even if we spend ou time doing silly things that maybe not important, we should spend most of his time doing things we enjoy.

There also the cost of the car and all associated things. That money you can't be spent on other things like a trip/vacations, somebody to help you at home cleaning things... or buy lenses.

It used to take me 45 minutes to work, suburbs of Montreal to somewhere on the Island. Downtown forget it . The problem is the city is an island so the bridges get really jammed at rushour.
