Looks like Canada and the U.S. will be the last Northern Hemisphere countries to receive the K-1.

Maybe they prioritized by market size? Pentax not so present in US/Canada

Off-topic while I wait for the unicorn to reach the periphery that is Finland.

We've invented that! Or sue anyone saying different.
I take exception to that. You may say German is a great language to compounding, but don't you dare to put down Finnish :P.

Here is one of the shorter ones: "peruspalveluliikelaitoskuntayhtymä" translates to "Municipal consortium health and social services utility". And that's normal mind you (and without the numerous inflected forms that often add to the word length in Finnish). There are longer ones and if you go for the more contrived ones you get something like "atomiydinenergiareaktorigeneraattorilauhduttajaturbiiniratasvaihde", which is basically a turbine transmission part in a nuclear power plant (it really exists, not made up).

EDIT:
For brownie points, the longest non-compound, constructed word in Finnish is: "kumarreksituteskenteleentuvaisehkollaismaisekkuudellisenneskenteluttelemattomammuuksissansakaankopahan ". Not that it actually was used or usable, but it's still a grammatically valid word.

Well if that's the case, he would only need to steal one to replace his Nikon, right? (more joking)

I heard that the one unit destined for Canada is on it's way.

On another note, is the picture in post # 1209 the first cat taken with a K-1?

Hope everyone enjoys their K-1!

I'm tremendously sorry and can but admit my complete and utter ignorance of that beautiful language. No offence meant in any way.

Played with a K-1 in the Ricoh/Pentax offical showroom in Shinjuku, Tokyo on Monday. It's real and not just a figment of our fevered imaginations!

The 15-30 was there as well to use.

We who speak English (especially American) ought to think deeply before looking sideways at another man's language.

Wouldn't that be the usual way things go ?
North America always gets photo gear last.


And half an hour later in Newfoundland! ((jokingly said)).
Or maybe earlier .... depending where the K-1 batches come from.
