Pentax HQ visit and K1 shipping news

Hello fellow Pentaxians! Made a visit to the Pentax Americas headquarters here in Denver, Colorado to have my fan boy moment. Ms. Linnea Wolken (Director of Marketing, on the left) and Ms. Martha Janeski (Social Media Coordinator and also rocks a customized K50) indulged me and my questions, even though I am certain I interrupted their lunch break, and even gave me an amazing Pentax Ricoh Photo Annual 2015-2016! These women are such a credit to Pentax and yet ANOTHER reason my loyalty lies with Pentax(Ricoh). During our conversation about the K1, B&H / Adorama, and shipping dates, Ms. Wolken said they would be shipping sooner then expected! And before I am peppered with questions, that is all she shared and I was too excited at my experience to ask any follow up questions . Thank you again Ms. Wolken and Ms. Janeski!
Also, I am such a newbie that I am just now starting to move out of auto mode, so any greatness in these photos is solely the responsibility of my awesome K50, not the photographer... lol.

Thanks for sharing! I've talked to Martha via email and she has been a big help on a couple of occasions.

I noticed them, too. Drat, they really should come up with a replacement for the K-01, lovable brick that it was.

Well, that is one way of reducing the inventory of unsold K-01 cameras.

I think this product is a case of 'it will arrive when it arrives - we really don't know'

I read on another forum that B&H is closed for Passover from April 22~30, so maybe other dealers will have it for sale sooner.

Throw a full frame sensor and an EVF in there and I'm first in line.

Just wait, 10 years from now hipsters are going to discover the little brick and will start a whole new trend with it - Brickography.
