@normhead and @mee: Can you guys please let it be? I can't see either of you convincing the other you're right.
Was responding when you added this, sorry. I'll let it be.

I am considering purchasing a K1 with the intention of making it my go-to camera for everything that is not Wildlife (my D500) and Street (my Ricoh GRII).

Although I am bought into Nikon, it's primarily on the telephoto and macro side with the following:
- 500mm f/4
- 300mm f/4
- 105mm f/2.8

When purchasing new, the K1ii with either the 24-70mm f/2.8 OR the 15-30mm f/2.8 is still a more attractive option over the Nikon FX system (when priced new):
- Nikon D810: 2,796.95
- Nikon D850: 3,096.95
- K1 w/ 15-30: 2,993.90
- K1 w/ 24-70: 2,793.90
AND probably pumps out better low light images.

Regardless of what direction I go, I have no intention on using a full frame camera for Sports/Action/Wildlife. My D500 is the right tool for my needs/style of shooting. The D850 is an attractive option, but:
- I already crop with my D500
- the D500 outperforms the D850 when it comes AF (despite sharing the same system, the AF Spread covers the full sensor of the D500)
- I do not care to spend additional out of pocket in add-ons to make the D850 match the D500 in FPS
- I have no need for 48mp files

Right now its between the K-1II and a refurbished D810 (which are priced similarly). Where the Nikon loses ground is when you factor in the Nikon 24-70 glass.
