You seems to be into landscapes and because of that you tend to look with different eyes at K1 Mark II which was targeted from the beginning at landscape photographers, and tend to "close your eyes" at things like af, burst rate, 4k video, buffer capacity, SD writing speed, tethered transfer...
Why is it so difficult to grasp the concept of Pentax making one camera aimed at 'generalists'?

from the youtube video



ATTENTION: Pentax has changed the ISO comparison in the video. The second image is correct.

.the early adopters will tell us if the shutter problem for one has been fixed in this II version... Please can you elaborate? A quick search didn't bring anything up...
There is plenty of talk in the K-1 threads, apparently there is for some a shutter shake at certain mid way shutter speeds, making things a little soft, with certain lenses, the K-1 mob should comment

Yeah, the way around it, for whatever the lenses are meant to be, you either keep above 1/100s or use the electronic shutter.

Now, the electronic shutter in the K-1 only works in Live View, but maybe the K-1 II doesn't require that.

Or just crank the ISO and shoot at a faster shutter speed. With the Accelerator Unit on the K-1 Mark II that should be a free kick.

shutter shock is hardly any problem, if one knows how to avoid it. I do personally think that there is no problem, this is the thing with cameras with moving mirror, even mirrorles cameras has this, due curtain movement. i do think that pentax K-1 handles that really well. key element is, for any problem. if you konw that SS appears in certain shutter speed, with any lens...avoid that by going slower or faster. do not sit there where problem is -> broblem solved. (or hone up your technique/skills)

Certainly full frame shutters - they're big.

The Sony A7R is notorious for it.

Am I the only one here to think it's a non-event? Everyone's smug for a very minor advance of the K-1... I don't see anything fundamentally revolutionary in these few new developments. Just the impression that pentax remains on a defensive position, and stagnates more than it advances. Sorry, for me I only see here a rather disturbing sign, open to you to see a outstanding spirit of innovation....
Are you equally disappointed with firmware updates? Exactly what were you expecting? Oh yes, until a week ago, absolutely nothing, now you have something and it isn't enough.
Sheesh.

I don't want to sound like a broken record as this has probably been said already in the pages of this thread but...to me this update is a bit rushed and doesn't offer that much to make me want to trade my 1 yr old K1 for the MKII...
I know the K1 is more geared towards landscape photographers, I'm one, that's one of the reasons I chose it for but think they could've waited more to improve in the areas the camera is weaker.

I take lots of landscape pics, but also wildlife and portraits and in these two latter cases I could use some more AF accuracy and speed and burst rate. 4K video...well that would certainly be nice but I can live with 1080 30FPS for the moment although that's a bit dated...USB 2...definitely yes (K3 MKII has USB 2...)...Considering this is Pentax flagship camera I think they could have waited and make it a more well rounded one, and please don't tell me "there's Nikon or Canon for this", I love my K1 and since I bought in a system with lenses and accessories, I would like to use it for the more things possible.
