Any test shot with K-1 for FA 77mm DA* 55 and DFA 28-105?

Well, I already saw the test result from Flickr on Canon 5d mark 3 but I wanna see the real result from K-1!!!

There are some RAW sample images but I never saw portrait raw samples with those lenses.

For DA*, Im really curious about the image quality at f1.4 and f8.

Here are some with DA* 55. Haven't taken any at f/8 yet, but f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, f/3.5, and f/5.6 are represented.

How is the focus speed?

This shows that Pentax was being very conservative when they rated the lenses.

Faster than K-5 for sure, I never felt it was a problem so far. I'm most happy with how accurate it is - it required lots of correction on my K-5, but on the K-1 it is perfect.
I did the shot of the old man drinking coffee in live-view with the articulated screen, I barely took any time for framing - let alone confirming focus, and the AF picked him out perfectly. A less sophisticated system would have focused on the table in the foreground.

Quite impressive even at F/1,4 although this lens is DA prime lens.

Just to confirm you are in FF mode ya?

I heard it works well, with some vignetting that you can correct in post.

I really want a k1, but only the 31 I have is true FF ready. The 55.1 is one of my favs and looks like it works well.

Then perhaps I can grab an older Tammy 24-70 to get me by until I grab the pentax 24-70.

But my deep inside says grab the 24-70 first, then the k1 when it comes down in $ a bit...maybe
