Adorama has named the not yet tested K-1 as one of the best wedding photography cameras:

Not sure what qualifications they used for that list. Obviously availability was not one item

I do say that regardless of what the performance might turn out to be the K-1 is clearly the best looking camera in that list.

Without a tried and tested focus system yet I find that hard to believe. I can't see the K-1 matching the performance of my D810 just yet in regards to focus.

edit: lol... Just actually opened it and see no mention of the D750.... The camera many BIG time pros such as Ryan Brenizer (and others) are using in place of their D4s. Also article was written two years ago and K-1, A7Rii, D5, 1Dxii weren't released then.

Neither credibility if you ask me!
However, yeah, it's possible if not probable that it will be a stunning wedding camera

This is nonsense! A camera not tested can never be the best!

The best thing about this isn't that K-1 is listed as one of the best cameras. The best thing IMO is, that Pentax is mentioned at all.

Yes, exactly. The good thing is that this is the first time that the Pentax brand name is put forward that much.

Ah ah. Most of the time complains about Pentax aren't justified, sometime they are, but most of the time they are denied by brand loyalists. IMO, getting your head deep in the sandbox is ok as long as you keep it there. Unfortunately, some folks have a lot of practical experience with photographing conditions and equipment, so they aren't so sensitive to temporary marketing spike.

The Ricoh K-1 has two unique features that others don't have:
1) pixel-shift: the world first 24x36mm camera with pixel shift, so if you have a fan of tripod photography, the K-1 is for you
2) price: the K-1 is world cheapest DSLR having a 36Mp sensor, if you always wanted a D800 (without considering lenses), but could not afford it, the K-1 is for you.

If you read carefully you'd find out that many of those "brand loyalists" are fine with valid, constructive criticism and in fact have some of their own. They are "brand loyalist" because overall - considering advantages and disadvantages - they prefer Pentax products to other cameras, not because they think Pentax makes perfect products.
But, haters gonna hate

Perhaps I missed it, but I haven't seen mention of "two memory slots so that all images can be recorded twice".

I've been told by a wedding photographer that this is very useful, in case a card gets corrupted or otherwise damaged.

(Perhaps all those cameras have two slots anyway?)

No, not all cameras have two slots.
- Canon EOS 5Ds has two slots, one CF and one SD. IMO that's the wrong way of doing things (for redundancy), as you'd need to have two card types.
- Canon EOS 1DX Mark II has two CFast/CF slots, the right way of doing it.
- Canon 6D, a single SD slot. No redundant storage.
- Nikon D810, one CF and one SD - again the wrong way.
- Nikon D5, 2 slots - either CF or XQD (Nikon can change them for you!). Now, that's an interesting solution, and perhaps the right way of handling the migration away from the CF format.
- Nikon D610, 2 SD slots
- Pentax K-1, 2 SD slots
- Sony A7II, a single SD/Memory stick slot AFAIK.
