I've been looking forward to Chris doing the review of the K-1, and this means it may actually happen very soon. I really like the way they do their reviews.

I live in the wrong prairie province. Boy Alberta has some good camera stores. I used to live in Edmonton....almost bought a new Nikon F Photomic with Nikkor F 1.4 50 mm lens.

My local dealer said, that the K1 will be available in the next 2 weeks.
And a few days later there will be an event with an pentax-representative. Everyone who buys the K1 at the event will get the grip for free.

Pentax K-1 Demo Day

Guess I was in Calgary two weeks too soon.
Can't wait K-1 photos of reflections in Calgary puddles and maybe fishing shots.

Why wouldn't a demo model at this late date have the final firmware?

All right, let us know when the product is made available.
I still doubt Europe will be served before US, but we will see.

The final firmware will be available with the camera, probably as an online download.

Maybe a secret feature in v1 they don't want us knowing yet?

Lozeau in Montréal are also advertising a K-1 demo at an outdoor adventure show next weekend (April 2nd-3rd). Here is the banner from their Web site:



EDIT: and in English...
Interesting. Another member posted here that Lozeau in Montreal hasn't a clue about Pentax, has no Rep coverage and has no K-1 pre-orders. Clearly the salesman was ill-informed.

They will continue to tinker until 6 months after the release date. There is usually one released when the first models go on sale, and then at least 2 or 3 more, over the next 6 months.

I don't think they're super hot on Pentax/Ricoh, but I've personally met a Ricoh rep that was spending the day there recently. And they do stock a decent selection of lenses. But most salesmen don't seem to know much about the brand.

On an unrelated note, most Montreal (and other Canadian) camera stores have been running a "Nikon Full Frame Sales Event" over the last month (see the Nikon Canada page about the sale). Hard not to think that the timing is related to the K-1 launch...
