Why I won't buy a K1 - Short Pithy Reasons Welcomed

Its a beautiful camera but, even if it is lighter than Canikon offerings, is still a bit too heavy for me, even more so when you add on the weight of a pro or semi-pro lens. I cannot top droling however and wishing I was 2 decades younger. LoneWolf

It's the same price as a D FA 150-450, and I know which I'd use more.

I can't qualify for this club as I already pre-ordered. Just following along in case this thread is as much fun as the "Why I won't buy a k-3 thread". And yeah, I bought one of those too.............
