Looks like they took it down. I believe the announcement is coming this afternoon.

Well that suggests they went a few hours early and got a nasty phone call!

Anyone notice the K1ii cameras had the correct labelling on Adam homepage posts, ie the ii under the K1 unlike the faked photos. Maybe they were the first photo of the K1
The funny thing is that in a few hours, all of a sudden B&H, Adorama, Amazon, & probably several other retailers will have tons of info about it. This site, DPReview, Imaging-Resource, & a host of others will have a ton of information & pictures. Some sites will already have some "hands-on" with it. It's like everybody & their grandma that doesn't shoot with Pentax will know more about it than us once it's finally released. Hahahaha!

I like the idea and results of pixel-shifted images. What I would like even more is one DNG file that has all 4 images baked into a single DNG that I can process in something like Capture One or any other software.

As a current K-1 owner I will pass on this model. Maybe the next one will be more enticing.

Otherwise, this is a perfect moment for buyers looking for discounted Mk I bodies or those who want to jump on the latest tech. It's win-win for Ricoh.

The glass is definitely coming -- there is a road map with lenses on it.
As those of us who use the Q system found out,
a lens showing up on a road map (09 Macro) doesn't mean that you will ever be able to buy one.

This is great for those in the Full Frame camp. Us mere APS-C shooters have to ask why the KP sensor and accelerator unit weren’t placed in a K-3 body to make a K-3III?

Here is something for those of you who have a K-1.

You can upgrade your K-1 to a K-1ii for $550 US

Ricoh announces an upgrade service for current PENTAX K-1 consumers

Not sure if worth it.

FYI, Sites are now going up with the K-1ii.

That was a surprise. I just need to read more about the differences and consider if its worth 550$. The original K-1 will still be a fantastic camera without the upgrade option.

Buy K-1 silver and have it upgraded?

Expensive way to do it, but you’d have something unique.
