Cool! I guess the first one using the FA 31/1.8 should put to rest some of the rumblings about unsuitability of "film-era" lenses for digital FF.

looks like the pic they had up at CP+ (from footage seen on PF) - good to see it properly

Not just you. Even the skin looks noisy. Hair and shadow areas show some blotches. A lot of detail and contrast for even a 20MB JPEG image, I'm afraid.

These .jpgs continue to leave me uninspired.

Does anyone have and idea where and when we'll see some raw files?

I just don't think that we can ever trust that a manufacturer will ever put out decent sample images. I have never seen any in 15 years.

The only inspiring images here are the ones showing the pixel shift technology.

People will start to receive their orders at the end of the month, JHfwp. You'll get bored looking at all the samples. ☺

The most important part is that the image says Firmware 1.00. This was shot with a final production camera.

Yes, that probably won't take long!

Well, I think Pentax JPEG quality is quite subjective, depending on your preferences... personally, I'm not so keen on JPEGs from my K-5, K-3 & K-3II at 1:1 reproduction. What I'm waiting to see from the K-1 - and I have a feeling I'm going to be impressed - is the RAW image quality, and how it processes in Lightroom etc. Several times a week I still find myself astounded by the dynamic range and detail in my RAW captures. If the K-1 continues the trend, I think most people will be delighted...

That 31mm image is awful!! Its soft, blotchy and the colour temp is way off. I get sharper and cleaner results on my k-3 at 150% than whats showing in this image at 100% for equivalent iso. Pentax! At least having had a play with k-1 RAW files, it keeps my faith a little. If I was just going by these, I'd most probably be crying (on the inside) after all the money I've spent on this camera and glass...

Agreed. However still ideal to see what the RAW files are like.

On the other hands, I would like to see more sample pics as well, especially from the 3 Trinity f2.8 zooms and FA limited/FA* primes.
